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 of course (you need to see a doctor and get antibiotics) but it will definitely ease the pain and make it a little more bearable. This tea is very soothing and it tastes delicious.
This is a blend that comes in a pre-packaged tea bag. Although I am not usually a fan of anything in a tea bag, I prefer loose leaf, but this tea brews strong enough that I truly wouldn’t know the difference. This blend is absolutely delicious, seriously it is! Not only is it soothing on a sore throat or just great for overall throat health, it is tasty and not the stereotypical “medicine tasting” herbal tea. I can taste the marshmallow and licorice the most, followed by the medley of herbs. It doesn’t even need to be sweetened because the marshmallow and licorice root do the job. I think that this could even satisfy a sweet tooth, that’s how yummy it is!
Every household needs to have this in their cabinet. Drink it at night before bed when you feel a sore throat coming on (or daily, for ultimate throat help and protection!) and you will feel so much better in the morning! So many times I have felt a sore throat starting and the morning after I drink this, I feel so much better. Not to mention it’s marshmallow-y goodness is delicious!

Slippery elm or Ulmus rubra (Latin for “red elm,” so called for its lovely reddish bark) is a beautiful, native North American elm tree. It’s the inner bark of this tree that is actually called “slippery elm” due to its, yes, slippery, smooth, and slimy-in-a-good-way properties. Combined with licorice and marshmallow root, we think this tea blend is like taking your voice to the spa—because we all need a little comfort sometimes so we can get back to being our best.

Some teas and tisanes I drink for a very specific reason. Today I would like to share with you TWO reasons I decided to reach for Tummy Mint from Yerba Buena Tea Co.
It was the middle of the week and I went out for lunch with ‘the boss’ and ‘the owner’ and I had a large salad with various nuts, seeds, fruits, and veggies on it. The dressing I chose was a potent balsamic. It was tasty when I was gnawing on it but it left gurgles later. I went back to the office and decided to try Tummy Mint from Yerba Buena Tea Co for the first time. GOOD CHOICE.
Tummy Mint from Yerba Buena Tea Co not only calmed my gurgles it freshened my breath. It was the perfect combination of peppermint, marshmallow root, chamomile, ginger, and fennel. It was minty – sure – but it also had a slightly sweet, subtle creaminess, and hint of licorice type taste to it. It seemed as tho all of the ingredients were evenly distributed throughout the sip. Not sure how they did it – but they did! Nothing was too overpowering. Tummy Mint from Yerba Buena Tea Co was my friend that day!
