I’ve had two cups of this in as many days. The pollen is wreaking havoc on my throat/sinuses this year. The fiance brought this over with five other teas from this company and recommended it for a sore throat, so I gave it a shot.
I definitely wasn’t crazy about the smell of the sachets dry… very licorice smelling to me, but they smell mostly like spearmint once they start to steep.
I added a heaping teaspoon of local honey to both cups, which is recommends, and found the taste to be mostly mint, a bit licoricey and of course I could taste the honey too. The taste was pleasant, though not my favorite, but again I don’t like mint teas very much.
I did find this very soothing on my sore throat though. Both times it seemed to sooth the pain in my throat pretty well, though not entirely. I would definitely buy this again to have on hand for future whiny sick times like yesterday and today.
Wild cherry bark is the first listed ingredient and cherry is definitely the first taste you get. That’s followed closely by the taste of rose hips, then hibiscus, and the cup finishes with a slight hint of mint and lemon. This is one of those teas where the flavors actually match the list of ingredients nearly to the letter (though I don’t get much orange from it). The liquor is a beautiful cranberry color, slightly browner than a traditional hibiscus tea. You definitely get the tartness of a hibiscus tea, but the other flavors are much stronger and make this more fruity than tart. Sadly, I’m getting low on this tea, too. Would definitely consider buying again, but will probably buy something new first (there’s just way too many teas/tisanes out there to try).
