Taster’s Review:

As I mentioned in another recent review, I am trying to avoid catching the flu.  This is another tea that I’m drinking a lot of lately to help in that quest.

This blend is a little on the medicinal side, but I don’t find it brackish at all.  On the contrary, it’s actually rather tasty!  The licorice root is sharp and sweet without overwhelming the cup.  And, I can barely taste the rooibos – just a slight woodsy tone in the background.   In fact, had I not seen the rooibos in the blend (and of course, read the above description), I would not have known that this was a rooibos blend.

The real stars of this cup are the cardamom and clove.  I like how they invigorate the flavor of this cup with their warm spicy tone.  As a result, this comes across a little like a spice melangé rather than a functional tea.  It’s really quite pleasant, with the medicinal taste being more of a background characteristic rather than something that hits you right up front.

This tisane has an agreeable sweetness to it that I choose to augment with a little raw honey.  This seems to emphasize the nutty tone to this cup, and makes it even more enjoyable to sip.
