Hello AS

Hello everyone!   So glad to see people here actually talking!   Guess it’s time for me to get back in here and start adminning!   Haha!   Every time I come in there’s so few people who have visited and it’s very discouraging.  I hope well.  Enough complaining.  Gotta go back and read the comments to see what’s going on!

Hi Beryl and Enigma.  I haven't tried hibiscus so I don't know about the taste of it.  But I don't like green tea.  I don't mind caffeine if I partake only during the day - evening not so good for me.  There are so many herbs and roots on this planet for almost any ailment we can think of-- why oh why can't just a couple of them taste real nice. Anything that does taste nice is a diuretic and I don't need help in that area - too old for that now lol. I'll have to google if hibiscus tea is a diuretic.

I haven't drank coffee in years. Just not my thing.

Comment by Beryl on September 21, 2018 at 4:57am

Not much of a coffee drinker I use small (demitasse) cups 1 or 2 a day. Sometimes I did do months of no coffee and did not miss it. My DD brought the green tea home and that is how I got to drink it.

Comment by Enigma on September 20, 2018 at 5:48pm

I don't like green tea that much either. It has caffeine and I really don't need that. My people bring it home so I drink it with them.

Comment by Beryl on September 20, 2018 at 5:43pm

I have tried green tea a few times but not my thing. I have some oolong loose leaf and sample blends but waiting for fall/autumn weather to drink that. Bought some at and tealux I got a little into loose leaf tea after joining a tea forum and learning a bit about it online.Tea bag person that found loose leaf quite late in life.  I like some of the hibiscus was in several fruit tea blends of Teekanne german teas which I had at german hotels when I still could travel.

I drink hibiscus tea and green tea. I prefer hibiscus tea because of it's anti-oxidant qualities. It removes free-radicals which are detrimental to so many things in our body, especially the brain.

Most herbal teas taste atrocious and I read on several places and  books not to add honey except if the honey is supposed to be an active ingredient like for a sore throat or cold/flu tea. I can not harvest my dandelion roots from my garden/yard for 2 reasons it is heavy clay soil and I do not have the hands for it anymore and I have a lot of visiting cats that the soil is not clean. I do give all visiting cats fresh water hence my family member tells me I attract cats and they leave ...  I do use the herbs that grow above ground/soil but no roots. Hence the dandelion is from a shop bought tea. I do make tinctures but not for ingestion. I use vodka for my tinctures. Some people tincture with vinegar but I have not done that. I think the turmeric perhaps not in coffee but in something less strong.I would not mix herbs into coffee. Yes the dandelion is diuretic but the dosage I use for indigestion is not much. I think with use of herbs fresh is best or as second choice dried out/dehydrated. Maybe pickles of dandelions to that you could ad turmeric and eat it as food. Or add bits of grated dandelion root to salads.The turmeric in powder form could be part of a salad dressing vinaigrette.My MIL lived to 92 and ate tons of mustard on all breads.I try to eat more mustard but is not a favorite condiment too sharp. Ginger is very warming and useful for lots of health things. I did a stint of eating jujubes/chinese red dates and have many health benefits. I got that google searching something else by chance. Hope this helps.
