I bought this sample over a month ago but it has been sitting in my cabinet after the feijoa scare. I found som courage this am and brewed it. The kawakawa is very large leafed and peppery, the only other elements in the tea are lemon grass stalks and dried ginger. I am glad I finally tried it because I really like it. There is a heat and a sweetness to it that are similar to a chai. I can imagine that with a little honey this would be one of my favorite teas when I had a cold. I think it will also work for the times I want something like a chai but don’t want the caffiene.
