This is one of my sick teas. My stomach has been upset all day. I have mostly been ignoring it and just throwing more tea down my throat but I can no longer ignore the fact that my stomache is trying to escape from my body by twisting itself loose.

This is not my preferred mint tea but it is pure mint, spearmint that is, so I figured it was the best one to start with. It tastes like blunted spearmint. I would say it is more towards the peppermint side of things. I am not really getting much sweetness that I associate with spearmint. The smell does not really match the taste. It smells like sweet, delicious spearmint. My favorite kind of mint. But the taste does not deliver the same deliciousness as the smell. I think it could be the type of spearmint it is, I have made my own spearmint tea from spearmint I have grown in the garden and it is usually quite strong and spearminty.

Anyway, we will see what the stomach thinks. Maybe I can coax it to stay in place for a while.

I actually find the same thing, but never realized it until I read this hah! It smells so delicious but the taste isn’t quite on par. I hope you feel better soon!

I think the mint is helping but I am also trying not to move around. Ha. When I smelled this tea in the store I assumed I would LOVE it so I told the person helping me to just fill up one of the large bags. I have tonnes of it now. But looking on the good side of things, I do use it as a sick tea so I guess it is not a complete waste.

I also use this one and peppermint as my sick teas. I also cut guayusa with the spearmint too :)

ginger might help? oh dear, feel better!

Lala

Thanks. I am feeling a bit better now, but was a bit unsteady early this morning. I do also have ginger sick teas. I usually use Presidents Choice ginger peach or Davids super ginger. I was a bit worried the spice in the ginger would be hard on my stomache so chose to stay away from them this time.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
