I love this tea. There I said it. It is quite possibly the naturalist sweetest tasting tea I’ve ever had so far. No sweetener needed. Plus, it doesn’t taste like licorice, which I can’t stand. It also doesn’t taste strictly peppermint, which would be a turn off for me as well. It’s just a nice blend of flavors…very complex. Definitely a dessert tea. If you’re trying to abstain this is a nice substitution and will quell your cravings. Aveda gives out free samples, so go by and try a cuppa.
