Pretty; very thin glass
Posted by Reviewer1437738 on Jan 20, 2013
This tea infuser is so pretty it helps me to drink a rather unpleasant medicinal tea daily. The glass is so thin I am terrified of breaking it and don't put it in the dish drain with other dishes. I'm also not sure about being able to put boiling water it so I select the lower setting on my electric kettle. I like the concept but would be happier with the execution if the glass was thicker.
A pound of tea goes a LONG way!
I'm using this medicinally, so am not expecting it to taste as yummy as, say, peppermint tea, but with a little honey and sometimes lemon, it's not bad. I paid the extra money for organic because I didn't want to get residue from any of the 28 pesticides approved for use on raspberries. Raspberry tea has been traditionally used for women's issues, especially cramps.
Good for anemia.
I take 1 T per day and it has helped bring my iron count back up. It's hard to find at supermarkets and more expensive. I couldn't find any on Amazon with free shipping. It's so much easier to get the free shipping on iHerb than on Amazon.
Nice lemon flavor.
I've been known to let many bottles of flax oil go bad in my frig but this tastes better and I am religiously taking it every day. I chose Carlson because they seem to put a lot of effort into purity and potency.

I didn't see the ingredient list here or on Source Natural's website so wrote them - all this contains is Pea Protein Concentrate. I like the neutral flavor because I like adding my own vanilla or cocoa powder for chocolate flavor or whatever. I've added this protein powder to strawberry banana smoothies, peanut butter banana smoothie, sweet potato latkes, etc. At first this seemed like a huge savings over Olympian Labs, but that has a bigger serving size, and correspondingly more protein per serving.
Works great to season cast iron pans

I think I heard about using flax oil on cast iron pans on ATK Radio. I didn't bother to strip my pans; I just add a squirt of oil after each use, while the pan is still hot. I spread it around with a silicone brush. Note: you must use pure flax oil like this brand - reviewers on Amazon complain about the results when using cheaper mixed oil brands and recommend this brand, which is cheaper here than on Amazon.
Hard to find in supermarkets and great price.
I love Earl Grey and after trying many different brands, have settled on Twinning. Loose leaves are hard to find in the supermarket. I think this might be cheaper on Amazon - if you buy $53 worth, pfft.
Better than Whole Foods brand

I ran out and bought some lysine at Whole Foods but my symptoms returned so I am back to Country Life to stay. This big bottle saves money, too.
Great for a cold
I make sure I have this on hand during the cold/flu season.
My body likes these better than the two other forms of iron prescribed for me at the VA.
Buffered is better
If I had to cut back to one supplement, Vitamin C would be it. When it's not buffered, it's too bitter, and can cause upset stomach.
Fragrance Free Conditioner
I attended a workshop were we were required to use unscented personal care products. I sniffed all of Whole Foods' "fragrance free" shampoos and found they either did have a fragrance or were very expensive. This product is much nicer, and affordable (when purchased here at iHerb.)
