I drink this when I feel like I need to think “healthy”. I had an acupuncture treatment before coming home from work today, and decided this was the tea to spur me on. I figure this is the next best thing to taking the time to go buy a bag of gǒuqǐ from the Chinese herbal store (cheaper, too).
Always when I am drinking this tea, I think foremost about how sweet it smells, and secondly how astringent it tends to be. Wandering through the isles at the drug store, I picked up a box of this and was reading the back… and I could have sworn that I spotted hibiscus as an ingredient. Which would explain the astringency.
Having eaten my share of goji… they’re not what comes to mind first when drinking this. Still good, though.
