I’m not really sure what neem is supposed to smell or taste like as I’ve never had it in anything before. It’s apparently something of an Eastern panacea, so perhaps it’ll cure all that ails me. ;)
The flavour comes across as being rather bitter, at least at first, but I got used to it as I drank my cuppa. I suppose it’s the neem that gives the tea a clean, fresh sort of taste; the bitterness is a bit much to get used to though, at least with nothing else added to the tea. Maybe I’ll do what LiberTeas did and add a bit of sweetener next time.
