I did not drink this for the supposed health benefits. I admit I didn’t pay much attention to the smell and taste since I drank this as I was lying in bed in the dark. It was medicinal tasting but not terrible. The main notes I can recall are earthy chicory and dandelion root overridden by a tart lemony-berry high note and a finish of licorice root, sweet but not sickeningly so. Some texture was present and appreciated.
