Drink Me: Tea Market, Tummy Tamer
When I was in the Tea Market a few weeks ago I noticed that they carried a Tummy Tamer tea. I have a nervous stomach and I’m fairly sensitive to stomach upset, so I thought it might be a good one to try and keep in my arsenal.
From the Tea Market menu the tea is a blend of ginger, peppermint, fennel, star anise & senna, berries and rosehips. It is available for $5.10 per ounce.
When I opened the package it was an amazing collection of smells – I could clearly pick out the peppermint, the fennel and hints of the star anise. Once brewed I mostly smelled the peppermint. It was definitely pepperminty as I tasted it, but I could taste hints of all the other ingredients as well. I wouldn’t have thought to put them all together, but I really enjoyed the fresh herbal taste. I can see how this would be a great tea to settle one’s stomach.
