Not expecting to love this one, given it’s mostly dried jujube and longan, which probably means it’s really sweet…
Okay, it is quite sweet. The jujube seems to contribute a honey-like sweetness that has a somewhat buttery, bready quality to it. Jujube is also known as red date, so I guess it makes sense that it’s quite sweet. I don’t think I can taste the longan, which has a similar flavor to lychee.
The ginger does add a nice spicy counterpoint, which helps cut the sweetness just a bit. But it’s still overly sweet for me. I can’t believe there was also a packet of brown sugar in the pouch, which I obviously left out.
(Please note that my rating is only in regard to the taste of this tisane, I can’t comment on any potential health benefits.)
