So…this is a mug of Love. And when I brewed it up the first time, I oversteeped and it came out murky and dark red — and I don’t know about you, but for me the thought of menstrual blood was kind of unavoidable. The tea didn’t smell in any way bloody, but I definitely had to nerve myself up for that first sip of hot, wet, blood-colored love! And while it turns out to taste sort of woodsy-spicy and a bit mild, context is so much; I really don’t think I can give this one a fair rating, or even a more thorough review.
