I second the other reviewer’s fear of this tea due to smell. I was cleaning in the kitchen while I brewed this tea and had a dirty crock pot that had made pork a few days ago. I thought that was the source of the smell….but no, it was the tea. WTH?

So anyway, I took a deep breath (away from the tea) and took a sip. Phew! It doesn’t taste like it smells! I’m not bowled over by the flavor, it seemed kinda meh to me upon first brew, but it may grow on me (perhaps like a fine mold…).

Not sure on this kind of tea…and I can’t pronounce it anyway.

I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
