throat coat

Organic Throat Coat from Traditional Medicinals. . . .

Ever since I was a kid I’ve had throat issues. I got strep throat almost every year. My mother is a nurse and she is really into organic and natural products. One day she came home with this tea and she told me to drink it before bed when my throat was bothering me this one time. The next morning I swear that I felt so much better. Ever since, I have always kept this tea on hand for when my throat started acting up. It works every time. If the issue is strep, it may not rid it completely Read More

Matcha from Pinky Out. . . .

Matcha really is my best friend. I stick to one company and drink their Ceremonial Matcha every morning, via a milk latte with agave syrup. When I saw Pinky Out’s matcha in my sample box I was hesitant . I’m one of those people that when I find something that I love I stick to it and I don’t really venture away…but I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to give this stuff a try. It was definitely different than traditional Ceremonial Matcha. Ceremonial grade is more vegetal and perhaps even a little less sweet than this stuff, Read More

Coconut Tea from CaCafe . . . .

This stuff is SO funky! When I saw the name “coconut tea” I was not expecting something that looked like ivory-colored brown sugar! The consistency of this is a powder that is thick and caked like brown sugar. It looks like a bag of powder, not tea. I went onto CaCafe’s website to see what all this is about, and apparently this is coconut and green tea all ground together. It is alleged to help with metabolism, weight loss, hair loss, and skin health. I was immediately intrigued, especially after seeing the consistency! What a funky and unique product. I Read More

Rose Water Shortbread from A Quarter To Tea. . .

When I saw the name of this tea, I was immediately intrigued. I’ve never seen rosewater shortbread before and, in fact, I didn’t even know that it was a “thing”. To be honest I find it very creative and now I need to find a recipe for this shortbread! Especially after trying the tea because this flavor combo is heavenly! First off when smelling the dry leaf of this white tea blend, I could instantly smell cookies. Once steeped, that cookie smell stays. There is a hint of that floral rose, but it isn’t overpowering and I think that the Read More

Plum Oatmeal Squares from A Quarter To Tea. . ..

Oh plum oatmeal squares, where art thou? Pastry, fruit, and vanilla tea- you’ve already won me over. I love anything that is described as having “pastry notes”. I am one of those people who could cook an entire slab of pastry dough, and just eat it with some cinnamon and sugar. I have loved pastry dough since I was a kid. I utilize it whenever possible in my cooking, and of course in my desserts. The name “Plum Oatmeal Squares” definitely peaked my curiosity. We’ve all had those Quaker Oatmeal Squares as a quick breakfast or snack, but how would Read More
