I chose this tea at random and noticed that it contains licorice root…oh joy :s The Licorice Twist from earlier didn’t settle in my stomach for very long. Yuck!
Once steeped it smells like a cheap scented candle that is confused about what scent it’s supposed to be because it’s been stored next to many other scents. Candle tea is not appealing in the slightest. I really hope it tastes better than it smells otherwise I wont be able to drink this.
It has a mild Pu Erh base (mud, clay and wood) with sweet vanilla and mint tones that disappear quickly in the after taste. It tastes as candle like as it smells though too and I just can’t get passed it. My husband also agreed it smelled like candles.
I can’t drink it, having to tip it away.
