I definitely think this tea is an acquired taste. There’s a lot of flavors going on, and it can be overpowering at first. As for the claims that it helps with breathing, I neither support nor negate the claim because I never really drink this enough to notice if this helps me breathe better. I really wanted to give this tea another shot, so I tried another cup and I still found the taste too strong. I’m not really a fan of minty undertones followed by a sweet aftertaste, BUT drizzled with honey, this tea tastes better. Maybe if I mix this with other herbal teas, it will taste even better?
