I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's situation. As a fellow TBI sufferer who still deals with all the associated bullshit on a daily basis, and as a fellow son of a mother with less-than-ideal mental/cognitive health, my heart goes out to you both. Biiiiig post coming up. I know you frequent /r/nootropics and similar subs so sorry if I'm just telling you stuff you already know.

It goes without saying that it would be ideal if you could get her to consult a specialist about her condition, preferably a good neurologist and psychiatrist who can work together to develop a medication, supplementation, diet, exercise, general lifestyle etc. regimen tailored specifically to her. If you have the means to do so, make it happen.

First things first, it would obviously be incredibly beneficial if you could convince her to cut out or drastically reduce her alcohol consumption. It sounds likely that she's self-medicating for depression related to her head injury and its consequences (I was there for a long time), so you might see about getting her onto a prescribed antidepressant. (Side note: it is crucial that she see a good psychiatrist to discuss taking any prescription psychiatric medication. Despite being legally allowed to prescribed many potent psychoactive drugs, GP's simply do not have the expertise necessary to make a good diagnosis and prescribe accordingly. Chances are if you ask for an antidepressant they'll just give you whatever a major pharma company shill most recently gave them samples of. Speaking from experience.) If you don't want to bring in the "big guns" so to speak just yet, then bacopa monnieri might be a good place to start. Very mild, very well tolerated, with a host of nootropic benefits to boot - it's known to improve memory significantly after about 3 months of supplementation. I started taking it about a month ago and for me personally it's been amazingly helpful; I can't wait for the memory enhancement to kick in. If it keeps on working like it has been, I don't think I'll ever stop taking it.

If you don't think she'll ever be willing to go completely sober, then make sure she's minimizing the harmful effects of alcohol with MisterYouAreSoDumb's damage/hangover prevention stack. (mind that NAC should always be taken before drinking, not during or after.)

I recommend trying to get her to replace alcohol with something less harmful, maybe every second drinking day or something at first. The obvious recommendation is marijuana, though as you're undoubtedly aware there are a ton of possible downsides to weed use as well. In the long run though, from a cognitive health point of view, it's far safer. If you're able to, get a few strains with different cannabinoid profiles for her to try so she can decide what she likes best - a high CBD/low THC strain (typically indicas) is probably more similar to alcohol than high THC, though it's still very different. If you decide to go with weed, make sure she's actively endeavouring to replace alcohol with it, rather than just adding it to her usual booze usage. Make edibles, extracts, or get her a vape if smoking doesn't appeal to her.

Then there's Kava. Its effects are probably a little closer to alcohol's than weed (though again, quite different) and it's much easier to get your hands on as it's legal pretty much everywhere (and easy enough to get through customs if you're somewhere lame like Australia). A good, affordable "beginner's" kava that she can try to see if she likes the effects is Yogi Tea's Stress Relief Tea
, as it's heavily flavoured and thus masks the acquired taste/feeling of kava pretty well. To really get a "drunk" feeling from it though, you may need to use 3 or 4 bags. Brew it in coconut milk or half water/half coconut cream to make it especially tasty. Or, if she's willing to tolerate the taste, go straight for a high quality source like Hawaiian Kava and brew it traditionally. Just make sure that she doesn't have any alcohol in her system whenever she uses it, as apparently that's a dangerous combo.

Also, if she does decide to quit booze at any point, make sure she does so safely.

Now, as for things to take... I'm still trying to perfect a regimen myself.

Over on the NeuroTalk forum, home to one of the largest online community of concussion and TBI sufferers, the recommended stack, as put together by the granddaddy of the forum, Mark of Idaho, is as follows:

>B-12 (500 to 1000 mcgs daily)
a B-50 complex, for all the other B's so you get a good balance of B's
a high potency multi-vitamin like GNC Mega Women/Men. Centrum and One a Day are too weak.
Niacin, 200 to 500 mgs
Some extra anti-oxidants, Vit C and Vit E
D3, plenty of this, 1000 to 5000 iu's
Omega 3 fish oil, with a proper balance of Omega 6 and 9
Calcium with magnesium, 500 mgs per day
I also have added
Curcumin (pricy but worth it) 950 mgs daily This is a Turmeric extract
DHEA, 25 mgs , a hormone that helps the body balance the other hormones, If your skin gets oily try 1/2 of a 25 mgs tablet. I only take a half of a tablet.
a Costco High Energy multipack (7 pieces) in place of the multi-vitamin
I have recently added:
Cayenne capsules
Resveratrol, it is supposed to help the Omega 3 fish oil work better
Garlic capsules for cholesterol
L-theanine for GABA regulation

I don't know that it's perfect but it's probably a good place to start. I think he might be going overboard with the amount of B vitamins in there... As long as she's taking the full dosage of a good multivitamin like Source Naturals Life Force (gets pretty pricey at 4 capsules a day, my approach is to take half the recommended dose and then add in a sensibly-dosed B complex. Any complex that uses methylfolate instead of folic acid should be of good quality.) she should be all set for B vitamins. Curcumin to reduce any residual inflammation is probably a good idea too - it's pretty pricey though. Make sure to get pills with added piperine, and I've seen it recommended that you take it with a fat source as well.

This thread, though more specifically targeted at treating a brain injury immediately after it's happened, is a great resource. Anything that's good for the immediate effects of a brain injury is probably going to be beneficial in the long term as well.

Oh! Also, the uridine stack. I don't recall the exact theory behind it, but it gets a lot of buzz as a means of preventing/reducing dementia/alzheimer's/general cognitive aging, so much so that somebody turned it into a drink which they now make a buttload of money from.

I'm super tired so I'm gonna just wrap this up neatly now... Might come back to edit it, but you're probably sick of reading crap from me as it is! For your mom, neurogenesis is king now, pretty much. Help her give her brain what it needs to heal and grow, and keep it away from things that hinder or harm these processes (booze, stress, poor diet/lifestyle, etc.). Lion's Mane is a good start, but I'd highly recommend looking into Cerebrolysin (requires injection), possibly P21 (like a refined Cerebrolysin, but very new to the market, so kinda risky), Semax (typically injected but if you send an email to and ask nicely they'll be able to hook you up with a nasal spray), Noopept (should be taken sublingually), piracetam (has been studied fairly extensively for post-TBI, seems quite beneficial), NSI-189, etc. Supplement-wise, this kind of stuff is probably going to be the most beneficial for your mom in the long run. I recommend checking out this post by user Rior on Longecity about recovering from brain damage. It's a thread about MDMA-related damage, but his advice is quite general and is based on his own experience with recovering from multiple concussions.

Whew! Definitely wasn't planning to write that much, haha. Really hope I've been of some help man. Best of luck to you and your mom.

Fear cuts deeper than swords

OOH I LOVE SCAVENGER HUNTS. Placeholder. I'm working on this. Goodbye sunday night productivity.

EDIT Aug 11, 11:44pm PST

1.) something that is gray.

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. It rains so much in my city and on those days I like to have my tea and soup and all the yummy hot homecooked food at school in the library while I study. I already have a great thermos for my tea and hot cocoa but not for my soups/food.

3.) Something food related that is unusual. I don't know if this is necessarily food related but WOOOO TEA. MANA-TEA. Seriously this is awesome.

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. A wii for my mom because she has been wanting a wii or ipad for a long time. My bro and i think the wii would be better because at least we could all play it together when we go home to visit.

5.) I will recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It's the book I just finished reading and I feel like it has helped me a lot. I am so much more motivated and driven and it is helping me make some tough choices in my life. I am a senior in college but this book can help anyone who is at any place in their life I think. I currently have this on my wishlist which is like a supplement to the book. Seriously though, read it, share it with everyone you know. Let's make the world a happier place.

6.) An item that is less than a dollar. Awww yeee. They always seem to have one of these on the coffee table at my brother's house. Wherever he lives. Even though it's never his. But yeah, they're cool but I don't actually want one.

7.) Something related to cats. THIS IS SO AWESOME. I have another mug with the disappearing thing on my wishlist too. But yeah, I love cats, I just don't have much cat stuff on my wishlist. I do need a real cat though... hint hint nudge nudge

EDIT Aug 12, 12:15am PST

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. Okay it's not Amazon but it is beautiful and I have had my eye on it for a year. Despite that fact that I do not plan on having children for at least 8 years. Dem hormones are a'ragin.

9.) I know it's not REALLY a movie but... A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? Because it is so beautiful and awe inspiring. It really brings me a sense of peace every time I watch it.

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. I can put on my holy strainer hat and pray to The Flying Spaghetti Monster to save me from the zombies.

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. I know I used this for another one but really, I think doing these exercises would help me in all areas of life.

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. These beauties, even though I doubt I can grow them without a yard...

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? My little acer hand me down freezes a lot, can't do multiple things at once, doesn't have a cd drive, has a screen too tiny to edit photos or edit my website. Basically everything is frustrating. And I'm a college student. So I use the computer for basically everything... and everything the little laptop CAN do takes forever.

EDIT Aug 12, 1:51am PST

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. If you don't think that is big enough, then here, but it's newly added.

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. Well, I'm pretty sure this is smaller than a golf ball. If it wasn't, I'd be disappointed.

16.) Something that smells wonderful. Mmm imagine the ginger lemon grass!

17.) A (SFW) toy. And here's another one because I couldn't decide which one looks more fun...

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school.

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. Currently obsessed with learning all kinds of new jewelry techniques! Also obsessed with tea because it's the one thing my boyfriend and I developed an interest in together. It didn't start out as either of our interests.

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. THIS IS SO PRETTY AND USEFUL AT THE SAME TIME. Seriously so cute, has lovely details, 8gb, and you can wear it as a pendant. Whaaaat!

EDIT: this lovely is made in oregon!

Loose leaf tea is great! It's so much better. Bigger leaves and less fine particles (fannings) mean it will be less bitter. Those little pieces steep really quickly, and make it bitter and almost metallic.

There's also temperature and steep time that you have to look out for, and adjust to your taste. Some greens only need 15 seconds of steeping in 160f water, while some blacks are best in 200f for 2-3 minutes.

I didn't know at first, but color varies a lot. A green can be ready when it's almost totally clear, or a dark green color, but most will be a yellow color (the result is often called the liquor or broth).

One of my favorites is an irish breakfast tea, with like a tablespoon full of leaves for a really strong but not at all bitter tea.

Sometimes people will intentionally steep tea for a long time, then add warm water to dilute it.

Check out r/tea, it's the coolest and most relaxed sub ever. "Oh, you like cheap lipton tea bags? That's cool, whatever you like!".

Tea balls suck, by the way. They don't let the leaves expand and mix evenly. This is what I use, and it's great. This is my mug. The infuser came broken, but it's great watching the water mix and change color.

These are some of my favorites that I've gotten off Amazon

This is some of the best Jasmine tea I've had, and it's super cheap. I got mine for $8.

This is some really good mint tea, good balance, really refreshing.

This is a good oolong, which is really good and way different from most other teas. It's roasted, which gives it a unique flavor. This is the black dragon (Oolong is actually Chinese for black dragon), which tastes more like a black, but they also have a green dragon oolong that is more green, if that's your preference.

That's just what I've gotten from Amazon, but the best stuff I've gotten is from The Devotea. They had a crazy 75% off sale so I just bought some of everything, and it was all consistently very good, very high quality.

This kettle has saved me a lot of trouble, it works really well once you figure it out, and you don't have to worry about boiling water and letting it sit for 3 minutes or something, you just push the button a couple times to choose the temperature.

u/ketovin · 2 pointsr/orangecounty

Loose leaf enthusiast here. Teavanna definitely has high quality leaves but you should check your options before you commit. Also - Teavanna(at least the one at South Coast) tries to push the sweet/mixed stuff too much - it's like showing off a steak with A1 sauce instead of letting customers try the delicious steak itself.

I highly recommend just buying tea in bulk on Amazon. If you're looknig for green, these are good : Link $14 for a 16oz bag will last you a very long time. Davidson's Gunpowder is cheap but robust and still delicious for its price.

If you want something with a more distinct flavor then go with Genmaicha. It goes great with food and is great to share with people because of its unique attributes: Link

If you're really keen on going to a store, a lot of the 'alternative' markets have loose leaf. Whole Foods has a pretty good selectoin of loose leaf - keep an eye out for the Rishi brand(Link), quality stuff. Make sure they sell it in loose form and not in the bagged/satchel form.

You can also use Yelp to find a local coffee/tea shop that offers loose leaf tea - they sometimes sell the leaves by itself. Link

Some shops I've personally been to that offers loose leaf tea : Zinc Café, Milk + Honey, Sweet Elle Cafe, Gypsy Den, & Kean Coffee.

Edit - I also recommend using Adagio Tea to buy tea. Great reviews and selection of tea. I have not bought from Tea Trekker but I did buy a book from them - great knowledge and selection of traditional tea from all around the world.

u/VocalMentor · 2 pointsr/mildlybrokenvoice

Very sorry for your suffering. As a fellow singer, I have empathy and sympathy. Let's get you over this, shall we?

The problem you're describing is caused by inflammation of your vocal anatomy. How to reduce that inflammation? --We focus on what we're doing here and this will encourage the body to heal, so your voice will be fine again.

Number One: You must calm your nerves. How? -- With this:

2. You must drink at least 100 ounces per day of clean, unflavored WATER. You must get at least 7-8 hours' sleep in every 24 hours. The voice loves sleep. So sleep more than 8 hours. Make arrangements so you can do that. Sleeping alone goes a long way toward reducing inflammation of the vocal anatomy.

(I'm getting to the reflux, so please hang in there.)

3. You must try an herbal tea, very powerful for reducing inflammation; the herb is called yerba maté: .

It will reduce the inflammation.

4. Excellent remedy to reduce inflammation: Aloe Vera GEL. Not the juice, the GEL. Get this brand, the finest one:

Drink 3 ounces aloe vera GEL along with each meal you're eating.

5. You must keep your vocal anatomy MOIST. How? --With these lozenges:

(They have a plain flavor, cherry flavor, and they have sugar-free, if you don't want the tangerine flavor--no problem.)

If you prefer to drink tea, please use this one, with active ingredient, slippery elm: .

Add honey to your tea, as this will be soothing to your throat.



If you are smoking (anything), you must stop. Try one of those over-the-counter gadgets/remedies for helping break the addiction to nicotine. Also, do not be in any proximity to other people, who are smoking (anything).

The intense heat alone, from the smoke, sears the fragile mucosal lining of the vocal anatomy. You NEED that mucosal lining intact, to protect your voice in general. That mucosal lining is so crucial. When it gets dried out, the body produces thick mucus, as a defense. Singing around thick mucus is a miserable experience. How to prevent this? ---Keep that mucosal lining intact! How to do that? ---Keep your vocal anatomy MOIST, by drinking your water, using your lozenges, getting your sleep, also increase foods rich in vitamin C, as this will fortify the mucosal lining. (Thin surface layer, on top of various organs and tissues, all throughout the respiratory system: this is what I mean by "mucosal lining.") We sing on the thin edges of our vocal folds, which means we sing on that mucosal lining. You NEED that working, intact, doing its thing. One way it protects your vocal anatomy is by warding off virus germs and allergens, as best it can.

Remember, the voice loves sleep. Get more than 8 hours if you possibly can. Make arrangements so you can sleep longer. This will help tremendously, to encourage the healing.


Go to Contact page on website linked above, to find my email. Write to me and let me know how you're feeling. I'll help you out of this, so you can get to your rehearsals in November and your upcoming performing opportunities, that mean so much to you. (I DO understand this, 100%!!)

Do you indeed want to sing better than ever? Then focus on what I've given you, above. Carefully follow these instructions, above. You got this!

I care about YOUR voice! If you want to sing, I want to help!

Let me know how you're feeling, please.

All the best!

u/Aerrowae · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yay! I'm so excited that you're getting your own place! That's such a good feeling!

Startup an excel spreadsheet and make a budget for yourself. I find that once I have a budget setup I pay even more attention to my money and figure out new ways to save. I have helped my roommate and my boyfriend setup a budget. :o)

The meat market can save you sooo much money and make you more conscious about the items you are buying and motivate you to cook more.

Crockpots are awesome and help you save time during the week. I know you work from home, but ready-made food throughout the week is awesome!

The Magic Bullet or Nutribullet are both great to have in the home for smoothies! Of course you can blend other items in the cups as well.

I have this Himalayan Salt Lamp and I love it. I also have this Himalayan Salt Candle Holder....actually everything I'm linking you is something that I own and love, something I have experience with, or a similar model (the crock pot was a random model) lol

Oh and this tea because it's delicious.

u/Tommy_Taylor_Lives · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

What makes me happy is sitting down with a cup of tea and a good book, even better if there's music playing. Actually, the more I think about it, its not so much the reading that makes me happy, but that environment.

I've been getting into this ancient game Go. The idea of sitting down with some tea and music to play a game of Go sounds just as relaxing.

I just moved to a new town. I don't know anyone and have been spending everyday looking for work. When I had free time I decided to go to this café right downtown. I brought my Go board (Goban) with me. Go is a game that needs too players, so right after buying a nice cup of tea, I set up the board and opened the app on my tablet. Interestingly, we have yet to build a program that can beat the pros at Go. Fortunately for me, this isn't a problem( :/ ). So I start the Go app and start setting out the pieces(stones) out on the real board with every move I make and rhe computer makes.

Unfortunately I lost, but it accomplished my goal. Someone else spotted me playing and asked to play. We played our game till they had to go. We called it a draw, and thank god because I was losing so bad. But while we were playing he said, "not to make any assumption on your gender or sexual identity, but guerilla gay bar is tomorrow night and you should come." To clarify, GGB is a monthly event where a local bar hosts a night for the GLBT+ community to hang out.

I went and met a lot more people, so now I don't feel so alone.

For you because everyone needs one for this.

I hope you start to feel better, and I picked a sampler of teas for you because sometime folks don't know what tea they like. Cheers

Edit: I spell gud

u/MsZombiePuncher · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh I got this!

  • Harney and Sons has tons of Loose Leaf Tea on Amazon. Personally I suggest the Paris and the Hot Cinnamon Spice. Alternatively they have a sampler. Harney and Sons makes really excellent tea.
  • Tea Forte also has a sampler, but honestly it's not as cost effect, but it'd be great for trying different types.
  • You can also buy some Twinings Loose Leaf tea on Amazon. My personal favorites are Lady Earl Grey, and the Darjeeling.

    (Note, all of these will last you a good bit, especially if you get more than one)

    Also, I know this is a Amazon heavy site, but I also want to suggest Adagio. They have A LOT of tea for really good prices, and you can actually get samplers of any tea for really cheap. I love just get a boatload of samplers. Each sampler contains around 10 cups of tea so that's also a great deal in itself. They have an entire page of sampler collections. I specifically want to suggest the Chai Tea Sampler, the Herbal tea Orchard Sampler, the Oolong Tea Orchard Sampler and the Green Tea Sampler. You also can't go wrong with just going around the site and picking and choosing, although you do save a few bucks with a sampler pack. They also like to just throw samples at you while you're checking out.

    If you find you want to get something on Adagio, I have a 5 dollar off coupon I can give you.
u/DRKMSTR · 1 pointr/politics

Welcome to America, a land where you can choose whatever you want in the store as well as grow practically any food source in your back yard.

That sucks you don't like sucralose, it along with aspartame has helped millions of diabetic people able to taste something sweet on a regular basis without messing with their blood sugar. Aspartame is the most medically tested food chemical on the planet and has no side effects (except for diarrhea, upset stomach, and some other problems when ingested in extreme quantities - you'd have to be on an intravenous line of that stuff to get such a dosage.

Look, I'm not a huge fan of sucralose either, but to get sick off of it I'd have to completely replace my sugar intake with the stuff.

The reason we have large corporations providing food-stuffs for so many people is because there's money in it and they do a good job at it. People wouldn't buy stuff if it was toxic, heck, I stay away from brands if I didn't like the way I felt after eating it. The fact is food is full of chemicals, chemicals that are extremely awesome. Chemicals are everywhere, in fact I'd dare to say everything is a chemical, if a food says it's chemical free, it'd be lying since it has a chemical makeup, heck water is dihydrogen monoxide, salt is sodium chloride, baking soda is something something carbonate (sodium bicarbonate, ah I'm too tired to think about it).

It's not a perfect world, but if you live in America, you live in a country where you have a gazillion options, you can shop at trader joes, walmart, aldi, kroger, etc. There are tons of people who want to sell you exactly what you want at a quality and price that is absolutely incredible. That's why trader joes exists, without corporations, how would you get foodstuffs that you preferred, you'd only have limited options from "government sources".

Believe me, I've been to China, the food is cheap and it's mostly grown in peoples back yard, but when you're driving along and people are burning batteries next to their "farm" it makes you a bit weary about where your food is coming from.

The only suggestion I have is to avoid anything "diet" since it has artificial sweetener, and get yourself some delicious tea, try this: I'm still going through my Chinese tea, but I hear this stuff is pretty good, plus they're "organic" which means the chinese tea farm "claims" they are. Ha-ha. It's still delicious regardless, just rinse off the tea with a bit of cold water right before you steep it.

Oh and if you're looking for tea that is extremely good for you, but tastes really weird, check out this: it has a strangely sweet taste, like a grainy sweet taste. It's apparently good for the skin and what-not. I'm not a fan of it, but it is super good for you. (Cleared up some foot fungus and skin condition for someone I know. They tried all sorts of organic cures, but this was the only one that worked)

So chill a bit and relax. Why not head over to a random store and pick up some nectarines, I bought 7 for $1.50 at Aldi, I'm sure they're probably GMO, but they are insanely delicious, crisp, affordable, and guaranteed safe to eat, otherwise the company would get sued to oblivion.

Edit: Sorry for the long writeup, but I'm a bit tired at the moment.

u/LSatyreD · 1 pointr/tea

Ooooh the best kind of reply I could have hoped for!

Sweet to neutral (no sugar added :P), bold flavors (no herbal teas), fruity, nutty, floral, wood, not astringent, not bitter. The more unique the better. I'm not too picky on characteristics but do care about overall quality.

Well, I have more black teas than I know what to do with; I don't see it on their website now but last year about this time I ordered a 5g sampler of every black tea Golden Tips had. I still have a box full in the garage, great stuff. (PM me if you want to trade for some)


Besides black (though always looking for unique ones):

I love a bold white tea, currently drinking a cold brew of Tao of Tea's Silver Needle. It reminds me of a green tea without the grassy flavor, which is my big hangup with green teas.

I have actually ordered a green tea from YS before (through Amazon). I do not care for it on its own, not much flavor beyond 'grass', but I do like to mix a pinch of it into my cold brews to take the edge off.

I would love to try a good Oolong too. I bought one Da Hong Pao Big Red Robe Wuyi Oolong Tea Rock Tea (500g) but had the same experience as the pu-erh cake (see next paragraph), it tasted rotten and fishy with no tea flavor. I might have thrown it away I'm not sure, will have to go check.

I have one 2001 Menghai ripe pu-erh cake that I bought online and I absolutely hated it, I think I've only made 2-3 cups with it (357g cake). Tastes like rotting fish guts, cheap mushrooms, and dirt. With all the hype around pu-erh I would like to try a good one but I'm hesitant after that last experience. If anyone wants that Menghai cake I will happily trade it for the cost of shipping.

I also have 16oz of Davidson's bulk English Breakfast that I haven't touched in probably a year. It was my first 'real' tea order but now I'm spoiled and can't stand the stuff. While better than tea bags there is something 'off' about it and it generally tastes like hay or barley and not so much like tea.

I also keep some nice Yogic Chai on hand but generally only pull it out for when I'm sick or it is raining outside.

Great snack that can replace cravings for smoothies, shakes, icees, slurpees. I avoid boba shops because they are inconsistent, cost too much, and don't display calorie content (or contain too many calories).

Buy thai tea mix and a tea pot. The tea only takes a few minutes to make but should sit in freezer or fridge for 30~ minutes to cool before adding ice and drinking. Other teas work too. Most teas are 0 calories. I freeze some tea into icecube tray so that I don't have to wait for tea to cool as long. You can also make a big batch of tea and save in fridge if you want.

Boba can be made by hand or boiled from hard (30-60 minutes) or boiled from soft (5 minutes). It is about 80 calories for 1/4 cup.

I use artificial sweeteners and artificial creamers to make the tea sweet and creamy without adding many calories. Make sure to soak the boba in hot sugar water to get them nice and sweet before adding them to your (less sweet) tea. I usually use nut pods or some sort of creamer that has some calories, adding 50-120 more calories to the boba, but you can stick to zero calorie creamers if you want. I hear Stevia is the healthiest zero calorie sweetener, by the way.

Because you want your tea to cool and your hard boba to boil it takes 30 minutes to make but you aren't in the kitchen the whole time. When I get a craving I will start the boba tea and during the 30 minutes I wait. Most of my food cravings pass easily during this time as I know I am about to drink boba. I find it to be very filling by the time I am able to drink it. I find that this is something of a strategy in itself... Having to wait 30 minutes for my snack helps the cravings pass and the snack feels more filling.

My absolute favorite tea is oolong. I can't explain why, really, but the flavors just make my tastebuds really happy! =) My absolute favorite oolongs are this one milk oolong from a small place in San Francisco, and the magnolia oolong from Murchie's. Mmmm, so good! I also have some nice oolong memories with my mom- when we visit San Francisco, there is a tea place we frequent and we each always get a cup of oolong to start our day. <3

Here is a lavender honey stress relief tea that I could really use! Today is the last day of my spring break, and starting tomorrow, I'll be extremely stressed out until the end of the semester (when I graduate!!). Basically, the last half of my last semester involves countless projects, papers, and presentations. And that's just my schoolwork- my research lab has a bunch of its own things going on that I need to take care of. And of course, that is just school-related stress inducers. I need to start looking for an internship, planning out my grad school classes, etc., etc.

I'm very much looking forward to summer, haha! In any case, I've heard pretty good things about this tea, and I would be ever so grateful! Thanks for having this contest! I love tea and it always puts a smile on my face to see a tea-related contest. =D

April 7th is my birthday, too!! Happy Birthday Elisha you're so awesome thanks for living and sharing a birthday with me!!!!!

Can we do add-on items? I don't know how much this is if it's not an add-on, but I would LOVE some more of this tea. I got it, recently, for the first time (through Amazon!) and it was incredibly yummy! My husband and I went through the whole box on less than a week! Very soothing, too.

If that doesn't work, then I would enjoy any ebooks off of Minecraft ebook list I just moved all the books to that new list, which is why they look like they were just added). Thanks, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Getting started with matcha is so awesome! I've been drinking it in the morning with breakfast for almost a full year now, and knock on my fake-wood desk, I haven't gotten sick at all (except for that one sinus infection when I stopped drinking it for two weeks...whoops).

I think you are selling yourself short if taste isn't as important to you. I feel high quality matcha is better for you, but maybe I'm just overthinking things. I would give this one a shot since it claims to be ceremonial grade, it's 4oz, AND it's barely over $20. That sounds like a steal.

I have matcha every morning. Tea ceremony purists would probably faint over my routine, but it's pretty quick for me and it still tastes lovely.


  1. Take your clunky soup cup and fill it with hot water. I use hot tap water. Let it sit in the sink.

  2. Put the kettle on to boil. When it has reached a boil, pour the water into a one-cup liquid measuring cup and let it sit.

  3. While the hot water is sitting, remove your cup from the sink, dry the inside with a paper towel.

  4. Place your strainer atop your tea cup. Take out your matcha tea and scoop as much as you'd like onto the strainer. Here I use the chashaku scoop to press it against the strainer. This is what breaks up the clumps, leaving me with very fine, powdery matcha.

  5. By the time you've finished adding the powder to your cup, the hot water in the measuring cup should be ready. Keep in mind you want the water to be between 155-180F in temperature.

  6. Pour in the hot water and whisk it to death until it's lovely and frothy.

  7. While waiting for it to cool (if you're like me and are a wuss), eat your breakfast!

Okay based on that I'm going to suggest a few things you could add to your wish list. I promise I won't be offended if you don't like them, but you might find something you're interested in. :)

Tea things:

First for cute tea things, I highly recommend the flowering tea pot I received it as an Arbitrary Day gift and it's awesome. The teas are delicious and most importantly, to me, the tea pot is sooo cute.

Mana Tea infuser a lot of people have this on their wish lists. I should add it to mine too.

Tea Sampler There are several samplers with different types of tea from this company and a bunch of others. You should look around for sure.

I love Yerba mate and feel great after drinking it! With that said, I would look into Guayusa. While I do enjoy Yerba, I prefer Guayusa overall. I think the taste is slightly better, it has a certain natural sweetness to it. It is a cousin to Yerba and comes from a similar region, so its very comparable. The main reason I bring it up though is because you wanted to mix L-theanine with your Yerba. Unlike Yerba, Guayusa naturally has L-theanine in it. Honestly, Guayusa is probably my favorite beverage. If you were interested in trying it, this is my favorite brand

u/Scoxxicoccus · 1 pointr/kungfu

Although some people have reported gastrointestinal issues, my own transition was a non-event that lasted less than a week. To put it bluntly, I haven't had a "bad" or "difficult" shit since I started on Soylent. I produce a steady "Type 4" on the Bristol Stool Scale with an occaisonal "Type 3" showing up if I forget to hydrate properly. I did fart a bit more at first but that minor symptom has dissipated like a fart in the wind.

For those people with issues, it seems to come down to fiber intake. Soylent generally has "enough" fiber for the general health of the general population - but certain people may need a bit more. Luckily, Soylent 1.5 (the powdered version) is very easy to supplement for reasons of flavor, texture or nutrition. I personally add a variety of supplements for a variety of reasons.

u/saltyteabag · 1 pointr/tea

My favorite by far is from Discover Teas, and $7.75 for 2 oz is pretty reasonable. Very nice strong bergamot flavor. They have a great Cream Earl Grey too, if you're in to that sort of thing. On the cheaper end of the spectrum is Davidson's, at around $15/lb. on Amazon, and it's pretty tasty too. I drink this at work a lot because I don't want to leave the good stuff sitting around where someone could take it or throw it out. I also hear Harney & Sons has a pretty good one although I haven't tried theirs.

u/Brave777e · 2 pointsr/kratom

I never use strong flavors. If want perfect amount of caffeine, try Guayusa Leaf. Always tasty and add that perfect extra focus effect. I use to use this alone for focus before i met kratom. Its only $20 for a bag. Its same family as Yerba Mate but better in my eyes because it dont have that nasty taste Yerba mate has.

You will never regret it, I reccomand it to everyone. And everyone who tried it fell in love with it. Plus you supporting Amazon jungles poor tribes since thats where it comes from.

This is also great to during T breaks from krarom. Just brew it and make it stronger.

u/UrToSidesOfStoopid · 1 pointr/tea

Since you didn't specify what kind of tea she preffers, I'll say this; Gun Powder Green Tea! I've had many brands but HERE is my favorite thus far! It's cheap, it's organic, great reviews, great experience! You'll need a metal infuser to go along with it though, if she doesn't already have one. If she doesn't have one, HERE is the one that I use. It doesn't have great reviews, but it works perfectly if you just line it up when you close it. Hope this all helps!

u/THRowawAYassist · 2 pointsr/OnlineGroceryDeals

I think this is a better deal kitchen soap wise: Instead of 12oz for 7 dollars, its 6 25oz bottles for 20 bucks. 3 times the money, but 12.5 times the soap. Also, for dishwasher detergent, this is a better deal: Instead of 20 count for 7$, it's 110 count for 20$.

Some stuff it just makes sense to try and get in bulk, because you get so, so, so much more.

Also, re milk. You don't have to get powdered milk. You also have the option to get UHT milk. UHT milk is milk that's been cooked at a high enough temperature that it becomes shelf stable. Just search for UHT milk and you'll find a tonne of brands and choices. Different fat percentages, sizes and so on. You can get a large carton, or they also make packs with a bunch of small cartons, like this one: I prefer that, because I don't use milk very often, so opening a small container each time works perfectly for me. You do however, have to stick the container in the fridge once you've opened it.

Also, if you have a tea strainer (or even if you don't, they're only a few bucks and worth it!), try and get loose leaf tea. You can get a lb of tea for around 10 bucks easy, and you can easily make a few hundred cups of tea. To make strong black tea, I use 4 grams of tea for every pot, and each pot gets me about 4 cups. A lb of tea is 453g, so...that works out really well. Even if you make individual cups instead of pots and use a couple grams per cup, you can easily get 200 cups out of a lb box. There's just no beating that with bags, even if you resuse them.

Here's 1lb of a green tea for 10 bucks: And here's 1lb of Earl Grey for 8 bucks:

Thanks OP! I'd already created list and was about to post to food_pantry when I saw your post and you'd found cheaper options for a few things and that seriously rocks.

u/The_Broad · 2 pointsr/breastfeeding

I've heard really good things about fenugreek, but don't know if you'd get too much of a boost from that. I have felt a boost with raspberry leaf tea but it can also dehydrate you a bit, so it can be a trade off.

Also, especially with number one, I could not pump much of anything without looking at pictures of her, listening to recordings of her garble noises, and/or very actively trying to imagine the feeling of her nursing. I just wouldn't get any milk. So, maybe try that sort of thing if you haven't?

If I were in your position, I would not supplement with formula. I would consider cutting my milk with cow's milk to make it last the last month until she can have straight up cow's milk. But when doing that one would need to be incredibly vigilant about her reaction, if there were any. Is she gassy/more fussy? Is she having trouble digesting it/yucky poop? Is she spitting up more? Etc.

Sorry that your time nursing is finishing up sooner then you'd like. Good luck.

Kirkland makes a great bagged green tea that's pretty cheep. I get it from the store for about $14. You can find it on Amazon here:

I drink a shit-ton of this stuff and it's pretty great. One thing to note is that you'll want to steep the water to the specified temperature (176F) for optimal flavor, just like every other green tea ;).

Cheep and cheerful!

u/swampgreen · 4 pointsr/keto

Throat coat tea!!! Comes in regular or lemon - both are awesome. The lemon one covers up the faint licorice flavor that shows up in the plain one.


And the longer you let it steep, the more you notice a very subtle sweetness - I think from the licorice root... No carbs, super effective, and good either hot or iced.


Hope you feel better soon!!

u/myworksafeaccount · 2 pointsr/tea

Tazo Rest is pretty good and will knock you out. Yogi Tea's Kava blend is pretty good too. Personally, I also do really like just straight chamomile, especially if it's loose leaf - tends to have more flavor than the bagged version. Mint is great as well - you can get dried mint, but fresh is great, too. I keep a mint plant in my apartment and occasionally make tea with a few freshly cut sprigs. (It also makes great mint juleps and mojitos...)

u/unicornsprinklepoop · 1 pointr/keto

Yeah sure! It's a few ounces of milk, an emulsifier (it's called 'base', it makes the texture smooth and it basically has the texture of maple syrup), simple syrup, matcha (sbux matcha is literally half sugar just so you know), ice and whipped cream.

I haven't tried playing around with making something similar to a frappucino at home yet since I haven't gotten around to buying a blender, but I feel like you could probably do something along the lines of this, based on a grande amount...

  • 16 ounce cup size scoop of ice

  • 4 oz of heavy cream or half and half

  • About 3 tbsp of matcha, like this

  • A scoop or two of nonflavored or any neutral flavor (maybe vanilla?) protein powder to make it smoother.

  • Splenda or some stevia drops to taste. If using splenda then 3-4 packets might work? Totally depends on how sweet you want it though!

  • Maybe some unsweetened almond milk to add in if you blend it and the texture seems a little too thick.

  • Homemade whipped cream with stevia/splenda and a little vanilla extract

    Like I said I haven't done anything like this before, but if you try it let me know because I'd like to hear how it worked out!

Yogi Kava Stress Relief

Subtle calming effect, not to the point of being anywhere close to a 'buzz' or intoxication, but I've found its a perfect way to wind down at night. Even just the ritual of making it and then patiently waiting for it to cool as it gives off its sweet aroma is usually enough to start calming me down.

Yep. Many different types from many different cultures. They are gaining more traction, at least in the states, with places like Teavana popping up, but it is really cool to get into. My personal favorites are Crème de Earl Grey (English: smooth tea with hints of creamy vanilla), Genmaicha (Japanese: Green tea with toasted brown rice, gives it a nice, nutty flavor), and Yerba Maté (South American: not technically tea, but very similar. Grassy (in a good way), earthy, robust). Just used those searches for examples...lots of different brands and ways to get them out there.

I'm really a tea beginner, so if someone with more experience and knowledge comes along feel free to ignore me, but I just found an affordable earl grey on for $15/lb. It's called Davidson's and I personally find it wonderful. The bergamot is much stronger than in other Earl greys I've had, which I really love!

u/Elijah_Baley_ · 1 pointr/tea

It's similar to coffee in that it's brewed using hot water to extract flavor from plant material.

It tastes mostly quite different, however. Personally, I enjoy good coffee, but good coffee is much more expensive and time-consuming to make than good tea.

You can get tea quite cheaply, although high-end varieties command exorbitant prices. Here for example is what appears to be a decent Earl Grey (I haven't had it myself) for less than $1/ounce (keep in mind that an ounce is enough to make 14 cups of tea, assuming you use 2g per cup).

Tea is as easy to make as you want it to be. All varieties come from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Black tea is usually steeped once, as are flavored teas and herbal tisanes, so all you need to do is put the leaves in your pot or infuser, boil some water and pour it in.

Oolong and green teas can be more involved, since the high-quality ones can be steeped many times. Still, it's not all that much effort.

Mate and guayusa are rather different. They come from two different types of holly bushes - Ilex paraguariensis and Ilex guayusa respectively. They're even cheaper than tea, but you use a tablespoon or more per cup. They also have much higher levels of caffeine, generally speaking. Mate is traditionally prepared using a gourd, and drunk through a metal straw called a bombilla that has a strainer in it.

u/Rainbowfrapp · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

It's so smooth and nice tasting I think people also call it popcorn tea because sometimes the rice pops. Honestly I'm in love with it xD

u/Genki79 · 8 pointsr/tea

Ok sorry for the long post. Just throwing this out there as a few people ask about getting into matcha.

This is teavana's matcha. "Imperial grade" seems to be thier naming scheme to make it sound better. Generally there is culinary grade, which is lower grade and generally used in cooking, ice cream, cakes, lattes and etc. Then there is ceremonial grade which is higher grade and use in the tea ceremony. There are many grades of ceremonial itself depending on how its grown, type of tea plant, location, time of harvest, etc etc. Looking on their site at this is the 80g for $34.95. At that price I would have to expect this is not really that high quality. 80g is a shitload of matcha. This small explanation may answer a few questions for you. You can also buy tea from there and the owner is very knowledgeable. Is another site if you want quality tea from Japan.

If you want to stay in the US you can buy some on Amazon. I have had the DoMatcha ceremonial grade and it was pretty good.

for the OP I would recommend getting a wider bowl so you can whisk the tea better and get an actual froth. From the picture the cup used seems pretty narrow and curved at the bottom.

Here is a short video you can see it being prepared

The times I have had matcha in Japan it was fairly thick and frothy. Some people may find it too bitter for their taste. You can thin it out a bit with more water if you find it so.

u/truthislife · 6 pointsr/Anxiety

I drink the Yogi stress relief tea - it also have lavender in it. It's not nearly as intense as that, but it definitely helps me! If nothing else, I sit down for a few moments and just decompress with a cup of tea. Plus it's yummy and has cute sayings on the tabs at the end of the string.

u/NOREDDITNO · 6 pointsr/LifeProTips

For all you people wondering which green tea to drink, let me introduce you to

This motherfucker right here.

Matcha is not only the best possible green tea you can have, but it's also delicious. I reuse the bag about 3 times before it starts tasting watered down, but it hardly ever gets that over-used teabag taste. And don't let the Kirkland Signature turn you off, it's still genuine matcha.

Also, you'll only like it if you like green tea in general. I've had a coworker who hates the stuff, but loves things like peppermint and sugar in her green tea (???)

Edit: I also recommend black tea. If you've tried milk tea, you've basically had black tea, except without sugar and milk. Green tea has more antioxidants than black tea, but in my opinion, black tea tastes better than green.

u/thinsponeeded · 2 pointsr/proED

I actually started blending a Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea and a green matcha tea together in my large liter water bottle, and it's amazing!

I also enjoy a classic Earl Grey with a bit of milk and sugar.

One of my faves is a Jujube/goji/longan berry blend. It's super common here in China, and sometimes hawthorn is included in it, too. It's naturally sweet, but adding a bit of rock sugar can be nice at times.

As for Chai, my favorite blend is Good Earth, but that was an older blend and I'm having trouble finding it online...

u/_Captain_ · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I don't need double talk, I need cinnamon spice tea! Seriously. I do need this. It looks utterly amazing. My mouth waters just thinking about it. And more tea is always a necessity.

u/therealbigfry · 1 pointr/tea

Yeah your calculations are correct, the only problem is I use 2 teaspoons per cup of tea instead of 1 teaspoon because it produces a stronger tea that stands up to milk. So it'll cost me significantly more. On top of that, if I need 1.5 times that for cold brew, It'll cost even more.

I'm using Arbor Teas Organic Earl Grey which is at about 30 dollars for 1 pound, but I can also try Davidson's Organic Earl Grey off Amazon for about 15 dollars a pound.

But yeah, I think if I advertise just the tea as organic, I would be able to sell more, or charge a higher price.

Guayusa is super energizing, even moreso I think than a strong black tea or matcha or even yerba mate. But like camellia sinensis tea it gives you a sustained type of energy, not like the peaks and valleys of the coffee buzz.

I hate bags, but one of the better bagged greens from a grocery store I've had is Costco's Kirkland Green tea with sencha and matcha. It is by Ito En, which is a good tea seller that does matcha/greens pretty good. FYI, this has matcha so the caffeine will be high.

If you don't have a costco, you can buy online.

If you can find Harney & Sons in store, they have good teas too and come in bagged form.

I've been sick for the past 8 days, and had a sore throat for the first 5 or so.


I've been 100% keto throughout the holidays, and didn't want a stupid cold to knock me out of ketosis. So I've been drinking hot toddys, and they are a game changer.


You can put just about anything you want in them. But I have a Holiday Spice tea. (Or, I've also combined a tea bag of Holiday Spice with a tea bag of Throat Coat, and I liked that combination even better). While the tea is steeping, I simmer some sugar substitute with fresh ginger, lemon juice, orange peel, peppermint extract, and a cinnamon stick. I strain the sugar to remove the solids, and combine it with the tea. Then add a nice shot of whiskey.


I've never had anything help with a sore throat so much! I've read that the alcohol actually kills bacteria in the back of your throat. Don't know if that's true, but I would take one sip of the toddy and my sore throat would be just gone for the next 5-10 minutes. I wish I had known about hot toddys before I started keto, because I would've used them back then too.


Hope you feel better real soon!

I add this tea mixture to water (1 cup of tea mixture to 4 cups of water, plus 3/4 cup sugar if you like it sweeter) in a French press. Let it steep for 30-60 minutes (the longer you let it steep, the stronger the flavor). I "press" out the tea leaves, then put the mixture in the fridge to let it cool. Add half & half (or basically any kind of milk you want--coconut milk is also good) until it's the color you want. Delicious and saves me lots of money to make it at home!

Coffee is best if you grind and brew it fresh. An Aeropress, a burr grinder, and a decent bean will make an amazing cup of coffee. You won't even want to put sugared shit in it because it tastes so good. Go to Starbucks and get a reserve coffee on the Clover machine if you want to try this brewing method.

Tea is best if you use loose leaf tea. Buy a single-cup, basket-style, tea strainer and some tea. I'd suggest Gunpowder Green Tea to start.

Could anyone recommend some others i might like? That, harvey and son's winter white earl grey, and art of tea's green pomegranate are the ones i like most.

If you're struggling to get 8 hours a night, you can focus on deepening the sleep you do get instead of sleeping longer.

  • Black out your room at night. This is the biggest one for me. I have cheap blackout shades and I use electrical tape to cover internet routers, smoke alarms - anything that flashes. Get your room dark enough that you can't see your hand in front of your face. Even a little light will fuck with your melatonin production and compromise your sleep quality.

  • If you use electronics at night, download f.lux. It's a free program that removes blue light from your monitor after the sun sets. Your phone should have night mode under settings; turn that on as well. Light in the blue spectrum is the biggest melatonin disruptor.

  • Take 400 mg of magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate before bed. It eases stress and causes a dramatic increase in sleep quality. Plus, a good percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium, so you could probably use a little extra anyway. If you go for magnesium citrate, start at 200 mg and move up to 400 mg over the course of a couple days. Too much at once will make you shit your pants. Glycinate doesn't have that issue, but isn't quite as bioavailable.

  • Take 300 mcg of melatonin right before bed. Melatonin is a hormone your body uses to encourage deep sleep, and taking it in pill form will knock you right out. It's prescription in the UK, over-the-counter in the US. Most doses are far too high (2-10 mg), and can impair your natural melatonin production if you take them regularly without a break. Stick with 300mcg (linked above); it's the minimum effective dose and won't mess with your hormones long-term.

  • I also drink kava tea on nights when I really can't sleep. It's more for stress relief/anxiety than for sleep, but if you find you have trouble winding down at night it can be a big help. Don't drink alcohol alongside kava; the active compounds, kavalactones, bind to the same brain receptors that alcohol does, meaning the effects of the two stack.

  • Don't take sleeping pills if you can avoid them. I'm not a doctor, and I'm not saying you should ignore your doctor, but sleeping pills don't actually put you into stage 3 and stage 4 sleep (the deep, restorative sleep your brain needs). They can also cause a lot of neurological side effects.

For my thai tea I use this

No need for the evaporated milk, I just brew then pour over ice. Top with HWC and a liquid sugar free sweetener. One cup will come out to be 4.5 grams of net carb. Could be less depending on how much tea you brew. :) In my opinion this tea taste much better than black tea.

I love this teacup, my grandparents used to get up at 4:45am every morning and drink coffee from these cups. They were thrown out as worthless after they passed. Found one with the same pattern in a thrift store for a nickel and eyes got sweaty real fast.

So here is my teaporn.

What cracks me up, is this is what goes through the first flap in my carryon laptop bag (over 100 airport checkpoints) and not once have I been asked to open the bag, let alone what are all those leafy snack baggies doing in there. for anyone who doesn't understand why carryon, good tea can be expensive and/or hard to source on the road

+1 for Guayusa, though I've only had Runa's version. I bought it for the cheap price and favorable Amazon reviews, but Runa claims it has ~90mg caffeine per cup (on par with coffee). I don't feel particularly buzzed with it, so YMMV, but I'm not very sensitive to caffeine anyway.

The taste took some getting used to. Like canadasmith said, it's not actually tea, so I shouldn't be surprised that it doesn't taste the same as orange pekoe or english breakfast. It seemed more "grassy", like some green teas.

If I could find this shit, cheaply, I would be drinking it all day. I've experimented with making my own cold teas, and things turn out WONDERFULLY, until I can't get the instant gratification and have to wait 24 hours for a new kettle of deliciousness to cool down enough.

I'm accustomed to savory drinks though; Coke Zero is starting to get too sweet for me and the salt gives me headaches. I can do straight coconut water, and STRONG green tea tastes delicious to me, but too bitter to other people. (More for me, haha!)

why drink tea if you can't stand it? i like coffee a lot, i just prefer ice cold tea.

while others may post exotic tea ideas, i'll stick with the tried and true just to get you started;



it's ok to garnish your tea with citrus juice or milk, sweeten with sugars or honey.

variety packs are fun to sample, just keep in mind they may not be different teas,

just various fruits|spices used to flavor them, kinda like flavored coffee creamers.

Go to your nearest Asian market and get you some Ito En Green Tea. It's completely unsweetened so it takes some time to get used to the earthy flavor, but it is real green tea from Japan. I have it in my house pretty regularly and have come to really like it.

u/ISELLCHEESE · 6 pointsr/tea

Genmaicha is the roasted rice green tea you often see in Japanese restaurants. It has a nice mellow flavour. The rice grains are roasted until dry, so I don't know how one would do that at home without burning them.

It is quite easy and cheap to buy retail, if you know what you're asking for. My local corner store sells this brand (I'm in Vancouver BC, where it's absurdly easy to find a wide variety of asian foods).

I HIGHLY recommend Kava Tea. It is a stress relief tea made from organic herbs that yogis use to help meditate. I quit 5 days ago and have been drinking 3 cups a day and it feels as though the anxiety just disappears. I had a panic attack the day I quit and punched a mirror so hard I broke my knuckles. The counselor at the crisis center suggested the tea and it is a miracle. If you are running out of hope like I was, just give it a try. It has relaxed me as much as weed did. Except you don't turn into a zombie like with weed. DONT GIVE UP. The anxiety is coming from your own thoughts. You WILL get though this and we are all here to help.

I am assuming that you're trying to make the Thai iced tea served in restaurants and bubble tea shops? If so, this mix is what you're looking for :3 It's already got the tea and spices mixed in. In trying to find a recipe online to make my own blend, this brand came up over and over, and I have to admit, it really does taste exactly the same. I've since found it in several different Asian markets, so if you have one locally, you may want to try there first. It takes a fairly high tea to water ratio, because it needs to be very strong, and you will need to get a can of sweetened condensed milk to pour in after it's chilled.

Teabags are more expensive and more time consuming than loose leaf tea. If you like green tea, here's what I'd recommend.

Buy one of these and a bag of this. Fill the kettle with cold water, turn the knob to the middle of the grey area, hit the button to start it and put in about a palm full of green tea pellets. Wait, pour, drink.

The kettle ought to last a while, and the tea will last you at least four months of heavy use.

Also, don't forget to smell the bag of green tea just as you open it. Worth the 13 bucks alone, it smells so good.

I've been drinking this matcha over the last couple of days:

I add a tsp to a thermos of hot water and shake it up. Even though it's culinary grade, it mixes fine. Most people probably won't enjoy the grassy taste, but I don't mind it.

As far as how it makes me feel, it's not as stimulating as coffee and really not too calming. It's overall more mild than expected. The Rev Up (black, green, oolong tea mix) from Teavana provides more of what I'm looking for. This matcha was really cheap though, so maybe I'll try a different brand later.

Not that I recall. You dont need much.

By my math (see below), Ito En's Oi Ocha bottled green tea uses abt 1/2 teaspoon pure ascorbic acid per gallon.

You can get pure ascorbic acid crystals/powder at natural food stores, or: 1lb


Ito En's Oi Ocha (ingredients: water, tea, ascorbic acid (vitamin c)) has 220% rda vit C per 8 oz, rda is 60mg, so 132 mg per 8oz, or about 1g per half gallon, which comes to about 1/2 teaspoon (which is 2.25g according to Now ascorbic acid label) of pure ascorbic acid per gallon (whew.)

From Serious Eats:
"Bottled iced tea needs some kind of acidic preservative, but it turns out different brands used different kinds. The Japanese teas all use ascorbic acid (vitamin C), while the Western ones opt for citric acid."

u/DoctorPainMD · 4 pointsr/tea

depends on what you want to do with it really.

Matcha requires a lot more processing than say a loose leaf tea. it has to be grown, harvested, treated and ground a certain way, and those things add to the cost of the product.

Matcha is split between 'culinary grade' and 'ceremonial grade'. culinary grade is generally lesser quality because the standards for its growth and processing is more lax, the leaves aren't harvested immediately and not shaded as much. It tends to be a stronger, more bitter tea. It is also the cheapest, and ends up being the tea that people use for cooking and mixing into lattes etc.

ceremonial grade is a lot milder, sweeter and less bitter, and is substantially more expensive.

if price is a factor, and you're not gonna make straight matcha with just hot water, go for a good quality culinary grade. this one is pretty good for an introductory one, if you mix with some water and hot milk, and some sugar for a latte feel.

I haven't bought a good ceremonial tea (poor student) but i have tried it. if you got the cash, go for it.

I don't have all that much experience with matcha itself, because its so expensive on the whole. I'd defer to the opinions of the others here.
