This is my first chicory tea. I didn’t realize it was chicory until I brewed it. I looked up the ingredients because it looked like a black tea with a dark brew. I have found to like chicory in tea blends. This, not so much. It has an unlikable bitterness.

I usually rate based on how the tea is w/o additions. To me, it needed a little sugar. It has a beer like taste to it, with the lemon and coriander in it. The ginger was a strong taste, too. It smelled amazing, but it tastes drastically different. I could finish my cup, but only because I was thristy.

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
