Which black teas are comforting to cancer patients?
A dear friend is post surgery and radiation, now undergoing chemo. He’s asked for black looseleaf tea. It must be all natural, no artificial flavors. I’d love to hear your recommendations!
When my Dad was going through chemo, it made everything taste salty to him and he craved sweet just to make things seem somewhat normal.
I love Premium Taiwanese Assam I get from Whispering Pines. Its just plain black tea with nothing added but has a wonderful natural sweet flavor. Its pretty much a staple for me.
If there is anything in my cupboard that will help or fit the profile I will be glad to send some your way.
My go-to plain black teas are Yuchi Wild Mountain Black from Taiwan Tea Crafts and Bailin Gongfu from Teavivre. :)
I like a generic shu puerh and peppermint when my stomach isn’t quite right. The combination seems to settle things down. Maybe a Yunnan black and ginger would be soothing too.
