This tea smells and tastes amazing! Echinacea is starting to become a favorite!

I haven’t made a tasting note in a while. I’ve been drinking tea, but it’s the same old, same old teas. Nothing new to write about. But last night I woke up around 2:30am with a horrid sore throat. I got some water and went back to sleep and just kinda dozed until the alarm went off at 6. It has gotten progressively worse. Maybe should have made some Clary tea from whispering Pines or some Cold 911 from David’s, but a friend suggested a ginger tea. I thought, what the heck, and made this one.

Ah, delight. Soothing warm tea on raw throat. If your throat feels like it has a six-sided pebble stuck in it, I can recommend this tea.

I wasn’t planning on buying any tea for a while, but I saw this one marked down to $0.79. It was the Holly Jolly holiday version, but even so, seventy-nine cents??? I mean, how could I pass it up? Besides, I’ve been wanting a ginger tea for my tummy which seems to be frequently unhappy.

My first surprise was that the steeping time was 10 to 15 minutes. That seemed terribly long to me. I let it steep 11 minutes, which seemed to be about right. I can’t smell it, and I don’t get a lot of flavor, really, but I could feel the burn of the ginger. I don’t think I’ll drink this one for pure enjoyment, but it will be nice to have for those evenings when I’ve over eaten.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This tisane is way too sweet for me and the licorice flavor is a bit overpowering. But that being said, it works! A sore throat feels significantly better after sipping this.

This isn’t a taster’s tea – but that doesn’t mean it is terribly unpleasant. It’s comparable to a very toasty oversteeped green tea. After 3 days of headaches that could not be eased by painkillers/ stretching/ hot showers, I drank a cup of this figuring the headaches must be hormone related. It cleared things up perfectly and gave me relief the rest of the night.

Flavors: Bitter, Green, Sour, Toasted, Wood

Merry Christmas Eve Eve :) i am skiing with the bf and his family this week and unfortunately have come down with a miserable cold, a very rare occurrence for me as I don’t get sick often at all, must be a powerful one. I bought some of this tea today and had a cup this afternoon that I could taste and am now unable to smell or taste anything lol so I am having another cup which I brewed for about 5 mins as compared to 2.5 mins earlier this afternoon. Hopefully it does its thing so I can ski tomo haha. Silly Christmas cold! Anyways, the cup I had earlier was nicely minty, mild citrus tang and that earthy, echinacea flavor. I imagine this cup is somewhat similar. Hope it works! Merry Christmas Steepster if I’m not back on before then!

I despise the flavor of chamomile, but was feeling in need of a tea to help relax me tonight. I was pleased to find that the spearmint in this particular blend completely overpowered the scent and flavor of the chamomile. This still isn’t something I would choose to drink for the flavor, but it’s effective and drinkable for a chamomile-hater.

Flavors: Spearmint

Really tasting the peppermint this time. Hoping it’ll sharpen these dull old wits! The manufacturer recommends a 10-15 minute steeping time, so that’s what I went for.

A lightly sweet herbal blend designed to support mental performance. The peppermint and rosemary really stand out. I prefer to add a bit of honey. Unfortunately this blend seems to have been discontinued. :(

A slightly bitter, nutty tea. The flavor is similar to coffee. Benefits of dandelion tea include a variety of vitamins and minerals, as well as its properties as a digestive aid.

Backlog from a few days ago:

Two months ago I visited my sister for my birthday, and she made a pot of nettle tea. It was delicious! Incredibly green and juicy, like I had just had a tonic of vitality or something. She offered to give me some of the teabags in her cupboard, but I declined because I figured I could find some myself.

Big mistake going with this brand. I bought it from a health food store about a month ago and it’s horribly dry and dusty. There’s none of that lovely “you feel like this drink is healing your parched throat after a month in the desert” vitality of it.

I’ll try resteeping it with different amounts of water at different times, but this is a pale shade of the stuff my sister’s got.

I found a good loose leaf nettle tea at Starsky. It’s called Koro- Nettle Seed tea. It’s pretty good and cheap too.

Ubacat

I’ll send you a sample of it if you like.

Christina / BooksandTea

I think that might be the same one she has. There’s a Starsky’s in Hamilton.

I drink this every couple of days to help with bloating. It has a nice nutty flavor that’s pleasant enough. I wouldn’t be drinking this just for the taste, but it helps with bloating and the flavor is nice enough that it doesn’t feel like a chore to drink.

I brew two bags in 15 ounces of boiling water and let steps until it’s at room temperature and then I drink it.

Flavors: Nutty

While this isn’t a tea I crave or would drink regularly, it really does seem to help me feel better when under the weather. It has a cinnamon minty flavor that seems strange at first but actually works well. Overall it tastes pretty good and helps ease the suffering from a cold.

I brew 2 bags in a large mug (15 ounces water) and let the tea bags stay in while drinking.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Mint

Very definitely works. The dry bag smells overwhelmingly like Valerian (which is to say, it smells like dirty socks), so I was a bit apprehensive about drinking a cup of it, but once it is submerged in hot water, the smell goes away and the other herbs take over and make it very sweet, mild, soothing, and enjoyable. And it knocked me out. It worked better than the Valerian capsules I take sometimes. I’m betting that TM uses a superior grade of herbs than the company that makes the capsules.

Flavors: Floral, Mint, Sweet

This tea is soothing with a bit of a pinch. It has a sharp Ginger taste that combines nicely with the lemon grass aspect. I made this tea at just under boiling and steeped for 15 minutes. I would suggest steeping for flavor, adjusting the time for the strength.

Flavors: Ginger, Herbs, Lemon

Winter time tea to help out with the frickin’ chill of MSU’s campus. It helps out, but again, no panacea.

I have way too much of this. I got it for cold care treatment. Helps, but no panacea. Otherwise medicinal and herbal. The other reviews are accurate for this tea.

I got this tea at Whole Foods today, definitely an impulse buy. I was there getting lunch and I thought this would be nice as an after lunch tea. Ginger is my favorite after mealtime tea because it helps with my digestion, plus I really like the flavor! The green tea is a darjeeling.

I found one teabag was not really enough to flavor my entire glass thermos so my tea was a bit on the weak side. I got a vegetal, slightly nutty green tea with a mild amount of ginger. Altogether not unpleasant. I will try again soon with two teabags to boost the flavor. I should stop buying teabags but they’re just so much more convenient for the office.

There are times when I just want a simple teabag too.

@Ubabcat – we just have a sink at work with no garbage disposal. I worry about tea leaves getting in the sink. I need to get some of those tea-sacs.

I picked this up at GNC the other day when I was there buying something else. I’m generally not a big believer in “detox” teas but I do find that dandelion root helps me a bit when I’m feeling bloated or like I’ve had too much to eat.

This is sort of an interesting combo, it has licorice and star anise in it along with chicory, schisandra and a lycium fruit. The box describes this as bitter and earthy and I would have to agree. It reminds me of a lemony licorice spice. I am not finding the flavor of this to be very enjoyable. It tastes more like medicine to me, but that’s the point I guess. It’s difficult to say whether it’s doing anything for my health but I guess it can’t hurt!
