I like cocoa, oolong, and licorice, so except for the black tea, the ingredients in this are right up my alley. A good start that went downhill when I opened the package. The dry mix has a strong, almost alcohol-like smell to it.

Brewed, it has a lighter smell. The alcohol scent is pretty much gone, thank goodness. Taste-wise, I get a bit of nuttiness, but overall the main impression is sweetness, probably from the licorice and flavourings. I don’t add anything to my tea, and I’m glad here, as I think adding sugar would make it undrinkable (for me).

Overall, it’s drinkable, but not something I think I’ll ever wake up in the morning craving. It’s too bad. If it were a bit nuttier and not as sweet, I think I would have loved it.

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
