I’ve been drinking a lot of these while sick because I needed something flavourful I could actually taste — even orange pekoe at its strongest without cream or sugar tasted like slightly flavoured water. I think it’s the tartness of this tea that actually hits my tastebuds amidst the nine layers of cough syrup and mucus. (Sorry for TMI).
Thankfully, I am now beginning the road to recovery — although I’ve actually pulled a muscle in my abdomen from coughing for a week solid and one of my lymph nodes still feels quite swollen. I hope it’s not strep. Ughhhhh.
