This tea seemed really exciting on paper – Siberian ginseng, liquorice, peppermint and spearmint (I love those herbs) rose petals, and some other things I had never heard of before. The rose petals added hints of pink that made it look lovely while it was brewing, and it smelled delicious, but on trying it I was sorely disappointed.

It had an odd twang to it and an even stranger aftertaste. It tasted almost like steeped dishwater, and while it was drinkable I didn’t enjoy it. Perhaps it was because my friend and didn’t brew it for as long as we should have (it does have a longer brewing time) but I was sad that I really couldn’t taste the peppermint or spearmint, and those are two of my favourite ingredients to any herbal tea.

Looking at other reviews on the company website, I can tell you that this is purely just a matter of personal taste, but on top of that I didn’t feel any of the benefits the tea promised. I didn’t quite understand the tea, I couldn’t quite follow its notes and flavours and I felt no better for having tried it.

When you try it make sure you have it without milk, and I wish you the best of luck when you do!

After all that, I suppose the only question left is:

More tea, vicar?
