  • Looking for a good tea to try

    I like hot tea, but have to admit my tastes have been limited to store bought teas around here.

    I'd really like to find some good herbal teas even if I have to order them online. All of the hot teas I've tried so far have not been flavorful enough and I usually end up adding cream to them.

    I'm thinking of trying these teas: http://www.theblessedthistle.com/Cat...goddess%20teas

    There was a review of them in the last Sage Woman.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good herbal tea to try? I'm tired of adding creamer to my tea!

    Everyone likes different things. I like Linden tea, personally, which you can get from culinaryteas.com. Culinary teas also has many other varieties of herbal and just about every other kind imaginable...

    Here are a few sites I'd recommend for ordering from:

    culinaryteas.com
    adagio.com
    psteas.com

    There are others too, but I haven't tried anything else.

      Have you thought about making your own tea blends? If you have a natural foods store nearby, you can probably get herbs in bulk. If you have a garden (or space for one), you can grow things like lemon balm, chamomile, lavender, etc. Put whatever ingredients you want into a tea ball or reusable muslin tea bags, and you're all set.

        Thanks for the suggestions.

        I honestly hadn't thought about making my own blends. I don't think I'd really know what to combine.

        Maybe another question is which herbal teas do you prefer? I've tried some of the grocery store teas, but they often seem very bland. I'm hoping it's just a quality issue.

          I do tend to make my own but when i see a new one in a store i will try it. The one i tried today was divine. It was by Celestial Seasonings and it's a chai called chocolate caramel enchantment. I don't understand the name but the flavor was great. It has cinnamon and cloves. It's very flavorful! I would recommend trying this one.

            Celestial Seasonings also has one called English Toffee, that's absolutely nummy!

            If you like spicy teas, I'd suggest looking online for a good Chai recipe. Most of the storebought ones are mild and can be expensive. The homemade Chai blends tend to be spicier, and you can always adjust the recipe.

              Yogi teas are my favorite brand and they have a very wide variety of flavors. I love their green tea but they have lots of choices - Egyptian Black Licourice is a fun one I'm thinking of. Enjoy!

              I'm really not all that sure what to put here. I suppose in time I might find something...until then...Fetch me the Bucket!!

                I prefer to use my own herbs to make a tea instead of buying tea from the grocery. I just prefer a more natural tea without any of the extra additives or whatever else the companies put in it.

                Hibiscus flowers make a lovely tasting tea. I don't think you'd need cream for it either.
                When I'm having trouble sleeping,one of my favorite teas to mix up is lavender and chamomile.

                    okay, your talking to the tea master here. i have been drinking teas for about 10 years, and i love my brews. for spicy tea, add cinnamon bark not the powder but the bark, let brew for about a full day, drink warm or cold, which ever you perfer. pm me if you want more, i got tones.
