I don’t know. In its defense, I’ve been pretty sick for the past few days, but, when I brewed this up the really rich scent of it made me feel nautious. I took one sip – it wasn’t as horrendously sweet as it smelled but I didn’t get anywhere past that. I’m going to try it iced and maybe hot again when I’m healthier but ugghhh this is not a tea to make you feel better when you’re sick. Barf.
