MY REVIEW BEGINS

 

Here is what I think

14 ingredients, I counted! There was a lot of thought that went into this tea and the focus is on mellow, and chamomile but this tea offers so much more. Make sure you take a look at the list and know there are some amazing ingredients. Two of my favorites are: Anise and the Silver Lime Blossom. Just Amazing!

 

What I liked

This is a delightful mix of herbs with a bit of a citrus mint scent. Brewed this tea is a bit sour then finishes sweet and citrus, it’s so rare for a tea to smell like it tastes. Impressive.

 

What I did not like

The only negative I feel about this tea is the “natural flavors” I always wonder what that is.. which flavor is it?

 

Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
