So, this is a very simple health question:

I've recently been drinking a fair amount of poppy pod tea, and have noticed that I keep waking up (consistently over the last four days) with a sore throat.

Is there something in the pods that is left over (in that sediment that gets through the filter into my glass that I drink down anyway) that could be causing this irritation?

If anyone knows or has experienced something similar, let me know!

Thanks,

-V

one time I snorted oxy pills a couple days in a row, and I got a sore throat. I think it has to do with the abrasive nature of pill/sediment on the throat, as well as the weakened immune system associated with opiates.

NorCal,

I was thinking about that, and I think the sore throat probably has more to do with my shitty immune system than the actual Pod Tea. With snorting I ALWAYS get a sore throat cause of the drip.

thanks for the input

are you using lemon juice with it? too much of that will cause a sore throat.

aha, thanks guys, I am putting lemon juice in it to help with the extraction...
that may well be the problem.

Just made a gigantic batch using 45 medium pods, but next time I'll leave out the lemon juice and see if that helps.

I appreciate the help guys

Probably the case, I never got a sour throat.

I didnt think there was anything that helped the taste at all.

The lemon juice does help a little bit, but I actually don't mind the taste of pod tea... I put about 5 spoonfuls of sugar in every 1/2 liter, and that helps, but the bittery plant like taste just reminds me of normal tea, something which I enjoy.

if you every want to improve the taste of your pod tea, try putting a couple bags of herbal tea (I reccomend Good Earth Sweet & Spicy) in the batch for the last 4-5 minutes before you strain it. It makes the taste a whole lot better!
