drank Cold Attack! by Della Terra Teas
1495 tasting notes

Fighting something decidedly nasty. Grapefruit seed oil is defintely helping, as is candied ginger and mint ice cream. Hoping this tea, mixed with a bagged dandelion tea, will help flush out some of the yuck.

I’m sure I overleafed this, as I’m using a brand new mug my daughter got me for Christmas – one of the Tea Forte ceramic tumblers with a metal strainer that fits snugly, covered with dogwood blossoms. I’ve yet to measure how much liquid it fits, so I guessed two cups. Yea, definitely wrong. Why? Because this is painfully strong. Medicinal, dark, thick, syrupy.

Let’s just hope it works. :)

Preparation

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
