I can’t believe I gave this tea such a low rating the first time I tried it! I actually didn’t realize I’d already tried it when I started making it again earlier this week. I’ve had it three nights this week, and I am quite fond of it now. The flavor is very subtle, but it’s been exactly what I’ve wanted most nights this week: Caffeine-free, soft, light, not sweet, warm… It’s as refreshing as water, but hot and with just the right amount of flavor. I ate way too much Indian food tonight and I really wanted warm tea, but nothing heavy. This was perfect.
I don’t know if I quite like this enough to buy again, but I am glad that my reaction to it has changed so much. It’s very much a “mood tea.” Most of the time it’s probably not what I would pick from the shelf, but it’s nice to have it when certain moods strike.
