Tasty, Soothing Tea That's Not Mint or Ginger
I have bad stomach issues and I'm a diabetic so I can't exactly pound ginger ale. Sometimes strong spices irritate my stomach so the mint and ginger teas weren't really doing it for me. So I went to the tea store and asked for some help. The girl suggested white tea. She said it might help because the antioxidants. So I tried it and it did. Then I discovered the joys of adding fruit tea. I buy from Teavana and I get the Silver Yen-Zen Pearls and either Beach Bellini or Peach Tranquility. I tried other fruit teas and my stomach just didn't like them. Peach seems to be a winner. If you don't have Teavana, any loose leaf tea will do. I recommend getting a quality, plain white tea and then mixing it with a herbal tea. For some reason this combo is better than just a fruit tea. I drink it iced (tummy doesn't like hot). I make no guarantees. This just works for me.

Heat up some water. Preferably 175 degrees Fahrenheit. You want it hot but not boiling.
In the vessel in which you are making the tea, a pot, a teapot with a mesh strainer, or a tea maker, add 3 teaspoons of the white tea (it's potent, so you don't need much), and one tablespoon of peach tea.
Pour 16 oz of water over the tea leaves and let steep for five minutes. However you want to do it, pour tea through a strainer (or remove your infuser) and pour into a large cup filled to the top with ice. You want a lot of ice to get it cold so use a cup larger than 16 oz. Drink up and feel better!
My tea is expensive but, if you save the tea leaves, you can use them to sew it a second time.
