One more review today, this one is real time. The three I submitted earlier were backlogs and I’m hoping to hit a few more of those tomorrow. It’s unlike me to have more than one review in queue.
I snag some terrible stuff from my aunt’s bagged tea drawer. This is my First and Last Time with Tension Tamer. For one, it’s lemongrass/lemonflavor dominant, eugh. Two, that cloying licorice root sweetness hangs out in the back of the mouth forever. Three, I’m not a fan of many combinations of non-spicy ginger, lemon, mint and/or cinnamon. The mint and catnip are cooling, yes. The hops, I think they round out the flavor and might contribute to some relaxation. I’ve had eleuthero before but can’t recall its taste. Can’t pick out the tilia flowers at all. Aftertaste is tangy and lemon cleaner.
Did I mention the dry bag smells like an herbaceous mustybutt?
