An oldie but a goodie, especially because I’m recovering from a very persistent cold.

Notes of currant in the liquor’s scent.

drank Citrus Sunburst by Tiesta Tea
631 tasting notes

First day back at work after a head cold. Still recovering. Feel lightheaded and congested. Dry office air is exacerbating sinus irritation and coughing.
Planning to down copious amounts of these Immunity teas; my timing on ordering this dry flight sampler pack of them could not have been more perfect.
This is the perfect citrusy, juicy, anti-inflammatory, Vitamin-C loaded brew.
Down the hatch!

drank Throat Comfort by Yogi Tea
631 tasting notes

Best bagged tea for coating the throat, hands-down.
Tastes mostly of licorice, cherry, and cinnamon (read: very cough-syrup-y), but it’s tolerable if you add honey.
Temporarily alleviates that awful tickly throat feeling at the beginnings and endings of head colds. I swear it also helped with my cough.
Benefits only apply during consumption of the cuppa. Once the tea is gone, it seems to have no residual benefits.

Flavors: Cherry, Cinnamon, Herbs, Licorice, Medicinal, Sweet

Nasty head cold, been sick for 4, going on 5 days now.
This tastes terrible unless you add liberal amounts of honey.
The first time I made it, it tasted like full-on onions. No idea what happened there.
The other few times I made it, it tasted like herbal, medicinal mush.
What else would you expect though?
I dunno how well it works either, besides providing the same benefits that any hot tea beverage does when one is sick.
Overall, not worth the investment.

Flavors: Herbs, Medicinal

drank Citrus Sunburst by Tiesta Tea

Dry leaf is comprised of pleasingly large chunks of dried fruit, pieces of fruit peel, and hibiscus. Very pretty!
Steeps a gorgeous orange-red color.
Smells pleasantly fruity and crisp, as one would expect from citrus.
Liquor is sweet and sour— reminiscent of orange juice.
Tastes mostly of oranges.
Feels very… healthy going down. I can tell that this is loaded with vitamins and minerals and will kick any cold’s butt.
Perfect!

Bio

Hello! I love literature, politics, handmade jewelry, all things purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorites: Black, oolong, rooibos, genmaicha. Vanilla, chocolate, fruity, nutty, bready, roasted, dessert-inspired flavors. Floral greens. Kombucha.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends. I’m also also iffy about mate and herbal teas, although there are a few that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Dislikes: White tea, unflavored green teas, honeybush, fruity herbals, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.

49 and below: Blerg.
