Auggy’s right. This smells like Pledge. I actually smelled it and thought Pine-Sol, but those two are pretty close. Also, maybe a little bit of cedar. It’s not really a scent that inspires confidence when what you’re smelling is something you’re about to ingest.

Luckily, she’s also right in that it doesn’t taste like that. This was a milder tea for me, so far as teas go. Somehow, though, the combination of the lemon and the chamomile reminded me of potpourri. Originally, they combined to make me think I was getting a woody kind of taste, but now I’m definitely thinking it’s closer to potpourri. Eh. I can see where the thought was. Maybe if the lemon was a little bit stronger, this wouldn’t taste so strange, but…eh.

Just…eh.

Pine-Sol, Eeeeeewwwww! D:

Yeah, seriously. It’s very off-putting. The rating would have been pretty dismal if that had actually come through in the taste.

Yeah, this one has a realllllly funky smell coming off it. A very artificial lemon smell… it smells a bit better than Bigelow’s Lemon Lift, if you should ever come across that one!
