I am dreading this cup of tea. The detox teas are not a favorite anyway, but I’ve actually had a taste of this one before. My husband had a cup of this the day we bought it so I tried it then. I’m not trying to be crude here, but I feel I should be honest.
Forgive me, but this tea tastes like hot vomit. It is the most bitter substance I have ever put in my mouth. Now, in its defense, the packaging does say that it will be bitter. Something about the kidneys liking bitter things. But I didn’t expect this.
The smell isn’t so bad. There is some mint in the aroma as well as something like echinacea maybe. I tried adding honey and it might have helped a little, but the taste is still awful. This is just going to have to go down in chugs. It reminds me of a really overwhelming grapefruit, maybe grapefruit peel. If I pretend it’s a grapefruit tea, I can almost bear it.
Flavors: Bitter, Herbaceous, Mint
