I’ve read many tasting notes describing tea as cough syrup. I have tried many of these same teas and did not agree. This tea, however, couldn’t taste more like cough syrup unless it was a bit more syrup-y in texture. I feel like I should have a cough right now and fear that I might just develop one from the psychological effect. Now, I’ve never particularly disliked the flavor of cough syrup. After all, it’s flavored so that it will taste good (as good as a medicine can), but I’d rather reserve the cheap artificial flavors for when I really am sick.
