drank Sweet Love by Kusmi Tea
2587 tasting notes

Another wellness blend from Kusmi. I steeped this for 4 minutes and that seems about right to me.

I hope I’m not making a mistake by drinking this late in the day but I just woke up from a nap (gotta love Saturdays!)

It’s a black tea blend with some chai like spices including cardamom. There’s also licorice root in here, why is Kusmi so nuts over licorice in these wellness blends? Fortunately it isn’t as strong here as in some of their other blends. The pink peppercorns are a nice touch. I admit I don’t really know what guarana tastes like.

I decided to drink this with soymilk and it’s tasty but I don’t think I would go out of my way to buy it again. I’m into herbs and I googled the health benefits of licorice root, it has some fairly impressive claims made for it, so I guess that might be one reason to drink it on a regular basis.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable
