I am not sure what to say about this tea. There is a licorice-like note but no licorice in it. My guess is the lemongrass and grapefruit peel. I’m trying this though, for the health benefits of the nettle (some specific ones). In past, on individual occasions, I have had nettle (allergy supplement with bromelain? and as a tea) and on both occasions I have itched afterward, even though they say to use nettles to relieve itching generally. I know contact with nettles in the wild can lead to itching though, so it seems a bit strange. My manager at work, who is a strong advocate of nettle tea, said that the itching could be a flushing of toxins coming up to the surface. This could be true, so I opted to get a small amount of this tea to test. I figure 3-4 cups is enough to test with, and if I am still itching after drinking it, then I just ought to avoid it in the future. I’ve already begun itching, not super duper crazy annoying itching, but just fairly annoying itching. I don’t want to go through this on a regular basis in order to get the specific health benefits I’m after…there are alternatives.
I’m not going to rate this because I think it unfair to use my itching from the tea against it, but for flavour, it isn’t my favourite, though I’d be willing to drink it regularly more for health benefits as a tonic, so long as the itching goes away after a few cups.
