Interesting…not for the faint of heart (perhaps for the faint of smell, though) Luckily I’m accustomed to the smell of edible seaweed, but it isn’t my favorite aroma. The taste of this tea is fine, not over-powered by the seaweed. I like the idea that it might have some good antioxidant properties (how much? I don’t know, really, but I’m all up for placebo effect too). Loving the cloth teabag!
