Mmmm… this is pretty good. I initially thought I overleafed or oversteeped – it was a super dark mahogany color. I was a little skeered and my first sip was with the anticipation of pucker your cheeks bitterness. Nope. Not much of it at all. I still think I probably over-somethinged it, but it’s pretty tasty. It is smooth and deep and robust and calming all at the same time.
The only thing off about this for me is that it smells somewhat odd when I sip it. I can’t pinpoint what it is I’m smelling though. It’s not offputting enough for me to not drink it but it won’t be a favorite tea to smell. At this point, after 3 cups, I’d reorder this if I were needing something to make it up to a free shipping level though I might not seek it out specially order it.
