Initially this tisane come off very thin. Relying heavily on its “mentholated relief” for much of its flavor. As it cools, the lemongrass comes out, sweetened almost imperceptibly by the licorice and cloves. It is not spicy, or particularly herby. It remains rather thin, albeit powerfully mentholated. It should be noted that this tisane matches exactly the notes published by the tea house. There are no claims of bold flavor, or intoxicating aroma. It is a drink not so much to be enjoyed but, as the title states, drank as a means of relief of one’s cold like symptoms.
