This is my first post, but I am an avid loose leaf tea drinker.
In my everyday life, I really like to stick to just pure tea - mostly greens/light oolongs with no flavors added.
When I get sick though, it is a different story altogether....
This tea is a combo of some powerful stuff and it tastes really good (unlike medicine)! It can be made at a relatively low tempurature for ease (use hot water spout or microwave to get the water hot first). It needs no additional things like lemon juice or milk, has a nice flavor and thickness which is well balanced on its own.
Base: Samurai Mate Chai from Teavana
Tea: Chinese Pai Mu Tan from Tea Gschwendner
Add-on: Hibiscus Tea from Tea Gschwendner(better) or Argo(works)
Flavor Add-on: Vanilla extract and Almond Extract
Mix is based on SIZE, not weight.
3 Parts Pai Mu Tan
3 Parts Chai
1 Part Hibiscus (since it can be rather potent stuff)
2-3drops/once of tea for Vanilla and Almond EACH
Shake up the container you put it in and brew at ~280 for just a few minutes to taste.
Voila, and Feel Better!
