I am boiling sticks and leaves on the stove because Christina sent them to me with those instructions. I think I’ll give them 10 minutes of simmering before I drink…

The leaves are still fuzzy after boiling. :) Smells a lot like the fake Greek Mountain Tea I got from Cornelia Bean. Sage, orange/citrus… I put some honey in it. This is more earthy than the flavoured herbal, though. Might be the twiggy bits?

Oh, that’s nice. Definitely a touch more medicinal than I was really expecting. It’s that earthy flavour like you can get with nettle leaves or (almost, mildly) valerian. But it tastes like citrus and sage. It’s pretty nice! Not sure I’d want it all the time, but if I see it locally (I’m pretty sure one of my local delis carries something like this) I might pick it up.

Thanks so much, Christina!

I have a bag of this and can’t decide if I’m allergic to it or not. O_o I really like the taste … Would you like some more?

Haha. No thank you. I have way too much tea still. :)

If you’re looking to get rid of it, I’m always interested in trying new herbals.
