I received this tea from a friend a couple of months ago, but I held on to it until I felt like I could use a cup of Digestive Helper. Well, tonight is that night. We just returned home from a nice restaurant and I indulged in some delicious yet very rich food. Digestive Helper to the rescue!
Whenever I encounter these types of “functional” herb blends, I am always just a little bit (or sometimes a lot) leery, because I fear that the blend will not taste very good. Fortunately, this is a functional tea that not only helps with digestive distress but is also tasty.
This tisane has a very smooth, mild flavor, and it doesn’t taste definitively like any one particular herb, but more like a melangé of many herbs… which is what this is. The peppermint is the most prominent flavor, but again, this isn’t a distinctive peppermint taste, but more like a minty background note that has melded with other flavors. There is also a citrus-y note to it.
The overall flavor is quite pleasant and it has a very soothing effect. My stomach feels a bit calmer now after having consumed a cup of it, and I’m very appreciative of that.
This is a good herbal tisane to have on hand – because you never know when you might need it!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
