Pretty much tastes a like liquid cough drop, as expected and desired. Added a touch of honey.

This tea is sweet, but delicious! There is a lot more to the flavor than sweetness, and has a floral, relaxing, aroma.
It is hard not to just gulp it all down!

So… We picked this up on sale at Earth Fare, our regional Whole Foods-type store. We thought it might be soothing for sick or rundown days. This morning I woke up after a poor night of sleep and I was sniffle-y and scratchy throated so I thought I’d give a try. I added the recommended two tsp of small pellets to a mug of hot water and it barely had any taste. After some addition of tea pellets, I figured out that it should have said 2 tbsp. Or my taste was quite impaired by the sniffle-y-ness. But still: YUCKO! It was bitter, herb-y, and had an unpleasant aftertaste. I didn’t finish my cup. I might not even try this again. I might just throw it out. I do not recommend it.

White Mepkin Abbey ceramic mug. 2 tbsp. Instant.

This is an instant tea—and I think the crunchy mix would be great sprinkled over lemon sorbet! The tea itself is very minty, though slightly more bitter than I like, as if it steeped too long, but I’ll confess: I got this for a dollar. I’d buy it at full price though, it’d be nice for a quick breakfast.

Ricola has tea? I gotta try it.

Although a green tea can’t be an herbal tea…
