I Googled this, got a lot of hogwash results, so I am turning to the trusted entity of FOO.
I used to drink a lot of Tazo Calm tea a few years ago, even though it made me feel funny; mild sore throat, etc. But I drank it anyway.
Last night, I drank some Calm tea for the first time in a few years. I got to the bottom of the cup and drank the junk that came out of the tea bag, too, even though it was very little.
Within a few moments, my throat hurt very badly and I got a mild fever. The fever didn't last long, but my throat still hurts 13 hours later.
Or maybe I am getting sick and it's just a coincidence with the tea, even though I used to feel funny a few years ago after drinking it.
Any thoughts from the tea crowd here?
