A lady I went to school with gave me this tea a few weeks ago. She tried it and hated it, but she said I could give it a try and see if I liked it any better. I didn’t.

As a hot tea, this was horrible. It made me wince and not touch the cup for the next four hours. By then, it was room temp, and almost bearable to drink. I decided that it would make a better iced tea than anything else. Chilled, it’s a little better, a little fruity but nothing I could really identify. I used the last of what was given to me to make a couple pitchers of cold tea, but I mixed it 2:3 with a strawberry tea, added one pomegranate for a bit more color, and sweetened liberally. It’s really the only way I can drink it without choking. By itself it was a pale pinkish color, I believe, and I wasn’t able to pinpoint what I was tasting when I first had it.

Bio

Just a down-on-their-luck artist who went to massage school, lives off of tea and home-cooking, and shares an apartment in a three-story sh— hole with a cool roommate and two cats.

I like my black tea hot, my fruit tea cold, and my herbal tea any way. Preferably without cat hair.
