This was a green brown in color and it smelled like a cross between ‘used catnip’ and dirty socks. (Some of you have seen me describe the ‘used catnip’ smell once before). The taste was a flat/grassy-wood type taste…almost on the verge of stale. I did finish the cup so the flavor of the herbal tisane was thankfully on the paler side. I don’t think I could have or would have finished the cup had it been more strong. Anyhow…just when I thought it was MAYBE growing on me…the funky aftertaste HIT me like a TON OF BRICKS…it left a dark leafy-green on the verge of bitter aftertaste. Oye.
