Thanks Liberteas for this one!
This sure has a “Motley Crew” of ingredients in it – but lucky for me – I’ve always LOVED Motley Crews AND Mötley Crüe – for that matter!
Before infusing this smelled like steamed broccoli. After infusion was complete I could smell the burdock and pu-erh over top of the rest of the ingredients.
I had no idea – going into this tea – what to even think about HOW it would taste! Everything is in this tea for a purpose and everything seems to work well with everything else.
It’s a bit on the herbally side but the Raspberry Leaf and Stevia give is a sweet and fruit undertone. The oolong breaks the pu-erh. The ginger and cayenne kick it up a notch. The nibs are very subtle. The best part – nothing is too over powering – it all meshes well. And just because it kicks ya in the throat for a split second doesn’t mean it lingers…there is no funky after taste.
I can say I have never had a tea quite like this. A surprise at every turn! And good for you! Well thought out and create! Neat tea experience!
