I tried it just recently it smells great! At first it taste sweet but this a weird after taste.
This tea tastes exactly like a stick of Big Red gum. It is very sweet and very cinnamon (like red hot candies). Might be okay for baking, but I could not finish my cup of it.
Edit: I gave the rest of this box of tea to my Mom. It turns out this is her favorite tea, ever. Maybe I am the only person who doesn’t like this tea.
Not my favorite of the teas in my cupboard. It’s very strong, especially the anise and ginger. But, it’s really soothing on a sore throat. Just make sure that it’s really hot when you drink it, the flavor goes a little funny, I think, when it gets closer to room temperature.
I made a cup of this tea hot, and the spices were just overwhelming — I’m talking a punch to the throat here. Then I got distracted by the book I was reading and let my tea get cold. At first, I was annoyed that I’d have to heat it back up, but I took a sip of it cool and it was a lot calmer. This definitely has potential as an iced tea. When the weather gets warmer, I’ll give it another shot.
You can certainly smell the spices galore on this one! WOWZA! I’ve put this one on the back burner so to speak because I didn’t like it at first. Thought I would give it a 2nd chance. Still don’t like it. It’s smells like it should be all spice but then you taste it and it’s very sweet. Not one of my favorites. Maybe it’s better as an iced tea.
