This is the third of four freebies that came with my tea order. Thanks.
Well tea friends, if you don’t hear from me for a few days, consider me a goner. Mastress Alita might still have my address. Feel free to alert the authorities. I have no idea what’s in this herbal tea but one would hope BTTC isn’t trying to pluck off their customer base. I ate a whole frozen pizza for dinner and I’m drinking down samples and ends-of-stash, so naturally this ‘Skinny Tea’ was my last pick of the night, lol.
1 bag to 160z of boiling water, steeped forever. Brews a dark amber. Smells like somebody drizzled golden syrup on a wet carpet remnant, no joke. As time goes on, the syrupy smell gets darker and thicker. They say to drink it once it’s cooled but I’m bucking suggestion. Tastes like wet carpet soaked in golden syrup. Reallly sweet like stevia in the back of the mouth. This might be as sweet as Verdant’s Gan Zao Ye but thicker. Going down quicker than anticipated. Ohh it’s getting strongly minty. Nice. The end tastes the same but with a major dose of green bell pepper. What the hell is in this bag? Has anybody tried mangosteen fruit before? I wonder what it tastes like.
No rating because not on the website.
EDIT: I am alive and well rested. I actually quite enjoyed the flavor despite the wet carpet smell. The syrup quality was satisfying and it ended up tasting kind of red-fruity. The green bell pepper at the end was not off-putting and provided an interesting savory note. I’d purchase more if I knew what was in it; I am hesitant to buy herbal teas without ingredients listed. Even then that is no guarantee that non-standardized and untested herbal blends coming directly from any location do not contain potentially life-threatening ingredients.
