I should have read other users tasting notes before trying this, but I was intrigued by this as it is an “herbal” tisane and not a flavored black tea. I don’t know how they made it taste like gingerbread, but it does. It just tastes like what’s at the bottom of your cup of tea after your ginger snaps have gotten soggy and disintegrated after dipping them in your tea. I don’t really know how else to explain it. I took a few sips but it is thick as mud and has cooled down too much. Maybe this will be added to my english breakfast tea 2:1 to see if they pair well for a spicy sweet cup….hrm…not my cup of tea without tweaking.
