I picked this tea out of my sampler pack to drink last night before bed. When I first opened the pouch a strong beer smell hit my in my nose, possibly even punched me in the nose! So with that being said we’re already off to a bad start. I steeped the tea as directed for 3mins, the color was amber and the smell was of hot beer. I slowly sipped my tea and sure enough… sweet hot beer taste! I let it cool off a bit and I suppose the nectar flavoring came out a bit more, but still none the less this tasted like a sweet, hot beer! I believe this tea is one that you would have to have an acquired taste for; I on the other hand do not have that acquired taste and it probably doesn’t help that I loathe beer either. I had to pour this one down the drain.
