The first time I tried this tea was from the 2016 Advent Calendar. It literally smells like an old lady and I couldn’t even drink it as the smell turned me off. I had a few sips and had to dump the rest down the drain along with putting the unused tea into the green bin. Perhaps this tea was such a turn off as I am one of the very few people in this world that don’t like the smell of lavender. I reset my nose by smelling some of the Jumpy Monkey!
