SIP DOWN!!!

First I have to say that this reminds me a lot of Samurai Mate from Teavana; in smell and flavor.

It make a light yellow liqoure and smells strongly of lemon grass. The main flavors that I got from it was lemon grass cinnamon and clove…. lots of clove. Then again there were two in my 8 oz pot. I am getting light hints of fruit, but it is mostly lemon grass and clove. It didn’t need sweetner, but just a little drop of agave helped to bring out the flavors. I am getting a little bit of coconut; more of a texture then strong flavor. I kinda wanted this to wow me more then it did, but oh well. Still good…..

Overall it was good. I wish I could see how this tea does blended.

I would recommend to anyone that likes lemongrass and chai’s
