2 Tasting Notes


I had to give up caffeine for health reasons. It’s been over 2 months and I’m still getting brain fog and constant lethargy. This tea is a real pick-me-up and I feel alert similar to drinking caffeine without the buzz that creates anxiety. The taste is pretty good. I don’t mind the bitterness, it makes me feel like the bitter taste jolts me awake.

Just realized that this tea has psychoactive properties. I drank about 4-5 cups and got extremely drowsy and a bit euphoric. This was a problem since I had a driving lesson during I was drowsy. It didn’t hit me until I was on the road. Be careful about operating machinery after drinking. Ginseng actually causes mind alerting effects and I can vouch for that.
