Dry, this tea smells a bit terrifying – it has a strange chemical, plastic smell to it. I bought a small sample when the salesperson assured me it steeped out better, and she was right. When steeped, the ginger, cardamom, and peppermint shine through some more. There’s a strange bitterness in the back of my mouth after a sip, though, which is weirdly medicinal to me.

Overall, better than I thought it would be, but not something I’ll drink again.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

Okay, nothing special.

Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

0-20
Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
