I have nicknamed this “spermy vegetable tea,” because the leaves are in the shape of sperm and the tea smells like vegetables (broccoli, I think).
Fortunately, this tastes better than it smells. The taste was actually just fine; it’s very light and soft (no spices, no bitterness). But the scent that reaches my nose as I’m sipping the tea is a turn-off; it would taste much better without the smell.
I don’t have a huge stash of non-caffeinated teas so it’s nice to have one more to choose from, but the other ones I have are much better so I doubt I’ll use this much. I anticipate I’ll have at least another cup or two in the future when I need something mellow, but otherwise this is not a get-again tea.
(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
