YUCK! HORRIBLE! DO NOT BUY! I received a sample of this “tea”, actually, it’s a tisane NOT a tea at all, it’s herbal. I tried it this evening and it is terrible!

The ingredients are: INGREDIENTS
Ginger, orange bergamot mint, lemon thyme, anise hyssop, anise seeds and blackberry leaves

No matter how long you steep it for all you can taste is a synthetic mint; the mint did not taste real whatsoever. It was a dry, stale mint with a hint of a kick to it, probably the ginger. It was also kind of a tart mint, not pleasing or soothing; it could have been the lemon thyme because it was a herbaceous-tartness, somewhat soft but nonetheless noticeable. I did not taste any type of fruit at all, no orange-bergamot or blackberry. Anise seed has a distinct licorice sweetness flavor, and there was no resemblance of that ingredient either. I even let it steep a few minutes, sipping in intervals and no matter when I tasted it, it was horrible. I didn’t keep it for long…after about 5 minutes, I threw it out, I just couldn’t take it anymore.

This is a stale, dry “tea”. I would not waste my money on this one…I highly recommend staying away from this tisane.

Preparation
