Something that tastes this bad has GOT to be healthy for you! The entire experience of the tea was frightening – the dry leaves are dark and smell composty, the resulting infusion is almost inky black with the wet leaves looking like something a nightmare left behind. The flavour is very earthy and fungal, but its incredibly smooth – I’ll give it that. Smooth in an awful way though, like a big fat slug sliding down your throat. I also braved it a second time to try with a bit of milk, which really bought out the mushroom within. A lot of people dig that in a tea but I cannot count myself among those who do!
