I agree! I've had the flu since Monday night. Today, I have been trying whatever teas I can in hope I can find something that gives me a good taste. I think I am on mug 10 or so, though a few have been 2nd steeps. I've finally discovered that the blacks and rooiboses are partially tasty without a functioning sense of taste or smell. The oolongs, senchas, and other greens just aren't the same though. Somehow all the yummy grassiness and other good flavors go away or turn into something that just tastes weird. Hot beverages are the only thing that keeps me from coughing, so a mug of tea is great, but not being able to taste my preferred mug of green tea in the morning is not so great.
