This is one where the flavour sneaks up on you. On first taste I thought it was okay, but it is actually the taste it leaves which is even better.

Sadly, this tea didn’t do it for me. The combo of stevia and licorice made it too sweet for me.

Dry Leaf Nose: Fruity and sweet. An interesting complexity is brought in by the guayusa and boosted by the aroma of the hibiscus flowers.
