The first cup of the morning. I found a loose package of this tea lurking about my cupboard, so I decided to give it a try! First sipping this tea, I experienced a pleasant fruity tartness — definitely not bitter. A few moments after I was hit with this incredible sweetness at the back of my tongue, it seemed almost artificial (I suspect it’s from the licorice root powder). I really enjoy this tea with the exception of that over-powering sweetness at the end.
