I wasn’t exactly excited about buying this because of the medicinal eucalyptus, BUT, I know that in this case, it’s more function than smell/taste.
The smell of the dry leaves is mostly eucalyptus, followed by refreshing peppermint, then the orange. No juniperberry scent which is too bad.
But the steeped tea smells mostly of peppermint with some orange in the background. Smells like a couple other tisanes I’ve had in the past, which were pretty good, so yay, this may be alright after all.
And it really is. It basically tastes like peppermint with some orange. The eucalyptus is sort of there, lending a menthol edge to this, but it’s rather light.
After drinking a cup of this, I feel no different, but to be fair, I woke up a lot better this morning after getting the first decent sleep in days, so there’s not much of a sore throat and what not left to comfort.
