Hmmm. Brewed this nice and strong and tried it unadulterated. The SMELL is overwhelmingly like some kind of boiled vegetable, which, while not unpleasant, but hard to get past when I’m in mind of drinking tea. I love the buttery smoothness of it, but not sure I’m ready to get past the sheer vegetable flavour of it. I might try blending it with other teas, or with a hit of sweetener/milk to alter the flavour. I have maybe another cup or twos worth left, so will try again. It’s certainly edible, just not sure I would buy it again.

Edit: My second try was MUCH more successful. I believe the problem was the first time, that I used too much tea, and had had too much overly sweet/fruity things on my palette. It’s still very odd, but I am tasting the nuttiness now and am craving moooore.

Edit 2: OMG this is becoming one of my favorite teas. Sadly it’s really pricey for an herbal, $9 for 50g, especially since the flavour is only really strong on the first steeping.
