My throat has been feeling funny since this morning… not a good sign. I want something soothing and sweet – and this tea is exactly what I need. I usually avoid tea with lemon myrtle but the lemony, herbal scent seems comforting to me today. I have never tried maté before, and I don’t really know what it tastes like even after drinking this tea. To me this tea is not very different from other herbal tisane.
