I got this as part of a tea swap and it’s not something I normally pick. I’m always looking to try new things, so I was pretty excited about this one.
The smell of this tea in the bag was pretty gross to me and I described it to my boyfriend as smelling like a “sick orange”. Once it was steeping, the smell mellowed a bit and reminded me of an oatmeal bath.
My first sip – I made a face much like the little red guy in the Steepster rating system. I am not a fan of the flavors. I’m not sure if it’s the licorice or one of the other ingredients in this tea but it is VERY naturally sweet. It coats your tongue with sweetness and spice. It’s not unpleasant but licorice is not my favorite flavor so I probably won’t be drinking this one ever again.
