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!

Up in the Midwest, we’ve recently swapped from unseasonably warm days to the kind of bone-chilling, rainy autumn weather that makes me want to take up residence under my coziest blanket for the next five months and not move a muscle.
One particular grey and soggy Sunday, I was forced out of my blanket fort and into the world– and let’s be real, I wasn’t too happy about it. Digging through my teas to choose one to take with me (if I had to face the real, soggy world, of course I was going to do it with tea in hand), this cozy, herbal blend from Balcony Tea looked like just what I was searching for.
Warming is a perfectly-spiced herbal with notes of ginger, lemon verbena, lemon balm, orange blossom & peel, and aromatic cinnamon. Right out of the gate, the leaves in the pyramid bag jumped out to me– this may be a pre-bagged tea, but full leaves are visible, along with slices of orange peel and what I suspect might even be little nubs of ginger. The verdict?
It was the perfect blend to warm me up on a chilly day! No sweetener needed, the ginger and lemon is bright and upfront, with a nice herbal balance on the finish to round it out. I truly felt the warmth in my bones as I ventured into the cold. The encroaching winter might not be quite so intolerable with this tea in your mug!
