tastes MUCH better than it smells when dry.
really minty with a touch of light seaweed behind it.
i prefer Seamist from Silk Road as far as a mint/seaweed tea goes though, so i wont be getting any more of this unfortunately!

This tastes the way you think a health tea should taste : very earthy, hint of ginger, and a salty edge. I feel so self-righteous when I drink this, like I’m doing something good for myself, but it’s not exactly the best tasting tea in the world and it certainly isn’t my go-to.
When I first opened the package this morning, I thought to myself ‘Why did I buy this?’…the smell is very potent! As an avid tea-taster, I gave it a try even though the smell made me feel a little woozy. I steeped for about 4 mins and the smell of the brewed tea was certainly not as strong.
As a drink, I don’t mind this one although it is definitely not my favourite. I do like the leafy taste and after-taste of mint. This will likely not be a regular every-day drink for me…but that’s mostly because I can’t get over the smell.
The first time I tasted this tea I was not crazy over it but tried it again and am starting to really like it …its reminds me of some velvet morning but the burdock comes through ..its a good morning tea ..try it ..you will love it or hate its not a sit on the fence type of tea but give it a couple of tries
