Woah. So thank you Kittenna for sharing this one. I really, really, like it.
It’s actually making me crazy because I SWEAR I’ve had a tea that had a similar profile but I cannot figure out what it is, and I cannot nail down exactly what this tastes like (sorry) but I do know that I really really like this.
I went with a 3 min steep because I didn’t want to go crazy with it, and the resulting tea is very smooth, and slightly sweet due to the licorice. I feel relaxed drinking it, but not so much that I’m going to nod off. I’m just alert, and relaxed. Not a bad way to start the day!
Oh, and I cheated and looked at other reviews! AwkwardSoul mentioned that it made her think of guayusa and dingdingding that’s the flavour I was trying to find. That’s pretty much exactly what this tastes of – woodsy, honeyed, and smooth.
Thanks for the sample!
