This is a pretty odd tisane… it kind of reminds me of that “orange drink” we used to get at field day during elementary school. But it has this weird herbal backdrop to it. The first time I tried it I didn’t add sweetener, but after re-reading the sample packet I noted that it advised a little sugar as an addition. I tried it and now I’m in the land of artificial orange flavored water. I’m not going to pour out the cup of tea, but I keep shmecking after each sip- and not in a good way. Oh fruit tisanes, you can go so wrong…orange in particular.
