I mixed about 1/2 teaspoon of this with 1 teaspoon of Adagio’s Lemon Grass. Soothes my sore throat and leaves a nice cool effect in my throat. Gotta load up on the fluids!

drank Lemon Grass by Adagio Teas
1626 tasting notes

I drink this so often! It soothes my throat, especially on a day like this! I mixed a teaspoon of Lemon Grass with a tiny scoop (half a teaspoon) of Rishi’s Peppermint Rooibos. Excellent combo! Well, lemon grass blends so well with a lot of teas and herbals.

I am enjoying the cool feeling in my throat.

I haven’t felt this sick in ages! I decided to reach for Rooibos Zanzibar Spice this evening. The warm spices… the candied ginger… it all sooths my throat. I’m going to drink some more of this!

I have more to add, but initial impressions:

Smells like cardboard but tastes a lot better than that! By far there are more rooibos than black tea leaves in there. I think thats why I smell the cardboard. Plain rooibos smells like cardboard to me. I added a cube of brown sugar and enjoyed this! Not something I’d reach for often though.

This is my go-to black tea. Its CTC but somehow delicious. It’s always there for me. Reliable… and I have a TON of it too. It never grows bitter even if I accidentally let it steep for longer than I want to.

This time, I added some cinnamon and sugar. Yum!

This smells better than it tastes. When I take a whiff, it smells like delicious caramel chocolate goodness. In my mouth, it’s not that great. It’s sweet, which I love, but it has some sort of chemical aftertaste I can’t seem to get past. Next time I’ll try it with milk and sugar.

drank Houjicha by Rishi Tea
1626 tasting notes

Finished this up today! Farewell Houjicha! Sad but a part of me is happy I’m finished with another can of tea! It’s incredible how much tea I’ve accumulated over the past few months-years. This one was a nice roasted green. Very warm nutty and toasty in flavor, and it lent itself to blending very well. I often liked mixing this with lemongrass, like today! I steeped this 3 times in a big mug. I might venture to purchase this again one day, but not anytime soon.
