Echinacea Complete Care Wellness Tea

I bought this Celestial Seasonings brand tea when I was sick hoping it would make me feel better. I'm pretty picky about tea. I don't like chamomile. I like green, especially genmaicha. I like fruity stuff. I like flavors that you could also eat (eg. popcorn, fruits rather than herbs) I guess. I was feeling pretty miserable though so I thought I would give this a try.

Unfortunately, by the time I got around to drinking it I wasn't really sick anymore. It was okay, but kind of strange. Maybe it would've been better if I were actually sick. It had a bit of mint in it, which I can see might be nice for the stuffy nose.

I'm sort of wondering about the quality of Celestial Seasonings as a whole actually. I usually buy it because it's the cheapest, but I find a lot of the herbal teas too tart and some brew up an unattractive red. I do still like the toffee flavor--calorie-free, dairy-free dessert. I guess their strength seems to be herbal teas since they offer so many of them and I require more caffeine these days!

The koala wearing the blanket is cute; too bad the tea didn't taste very good. I think stuff with echinacea in it tends to have a weird flavor. That toffee tea sounds yummy, though! I just might have to give that one a try...
