Sipped this one earlier in the week – maybe it was my subconcious telling me to drink some elderberry and echinacea before I started feeling properly sick? Who knows, though.
Trader Nick’s has a blend for practically every dwarf, which initially felt like an over representation of Snow White to me – I mean, how much can you really riff on with each dwarf? They’re barely fleshed out characters. However, upon closer glance this seems to be where Trader Nick’s has channeled a lot of their functional blends, which is clever! Sleepy is a blend for sleep, IIRC Grumpy was an anti-stress/relaxation oriented blend, and this one is more of an immunity/cold and flu tea.
I probably would have pased this one up under normal circumstances, but it was recommended by thereaderscup on IG so I added it into my order out of curiosity. It’s very tart and kind of syrupy in mouthfeel with strong and unsweet notes of elderberry, black currant, and hibiscus with hints of ginger and that funky sort of “feet like” undertone of echinacea. It’s borderline just a bit gross because of the echinacea but the other flavours are strong and do a decent enough job covering the taste. Hot, it could use a biiitttt of sweetener IMO (honey would probably be great) but the flavour is punchy and tart enough that it would probably be really refreshing iced.
