The smell of this tea is intoxicating. When I opened the package from Dexter3657, I just stood there and sniffed. It’s so incredibly unusual. Sweet birch, berries, hibiscus, tea… all the flavours come together and, IMO, would make an incredibly lovely perfume.
I wasn’t expecting to like this tea at all, but I do. I actually really do. The licorice just adds enough sweetness without being too cloying in the aftertaste. The tart berry taste from the hibiscus and strawberry (although I’m not getting strawberry itself out of the tea), the herbal qualities from whatever is giving the sassafras/sweet birch flavour. It also tastes a bit of tree bark.
It’s really odd, and I couldn’t drink it all the time, but it’s definitely going on my next order. Thanks, Dexter!
