I hate that I can’t edit the information on this one yet never mind I wasn’t finished updating it…grrr….
Anyways, this tisane has Jiaogulan as its body with ginger to spice it up and monk fruit to naturally sweeten it. The monk fruit is not needed in my opinion, making it taste a little more artificial than it is in reality. I honestly got this one mostly for the health benefits, especially as a more natural pre and post workout supplement that would help me with focus and recovery. It does help me out, and even relaxes my blood vessels enough for me to sleep, but the healing aspect really is stronger in terms of immunity. I was drinking this daily when my roommate, mother, grandfather, and aunt all caught a cold I did not catch it, which is amazing considering how my type 1 diabetes makes me more vulnerable to infection.

As for the actual taste, Jiaogulan is very earthy, almost similar to carob but more grassy and less sweet. The smell is not great either, again coming out as wet earth and ginger. The ginger is what I like best about this tea and what makes it more drinkable. I like it with honey, straight, and sometimes with milk….which is bizarre because you would think that earthiness clashes with the milk, making it sour. But no, it turns into a mini ayuverdic drink, just like the Tulsi Sweet Rose does with milk.

In summary: this is an herbal supplement or medicinal tisane. As an adaptogen, it works for immunity and stress, and only slightly as a fitness supplement. I like it, but I would not recommend it.
