Most Herbal Yogi Teas have been grossing me out lately because of the medicine-E taste. This is much better tasting than most. It’s light red in color. It’s fruity but not as bad as one might think…I think it’s because the Ginger, Licorice, and Peppermint cut the taste a bit. Prior to steeping you can smell the ginger but that is nearly lost after the steep.
