Super smooth

Brewed 4g in 350ml for about 4min. Dry blend has a very strong vanilla aroma, but this mellows out quite a bit once brewed. Gorgeous color, no bitterness, slight sweetness on its own. I can sense the spice from the ginger and cinnamon, but every note is on equal level so it's not too overpowering.

Gorgeous, delicious, and functional

Leave it to a tea inspired by Critical Bard to be one of the most delicious, throat-friendly blends I've found. I'm a teacher and my husband works on the phone all day. That alone makes it worth it, but then that color? Just icing on the cake. An excellent blend, will be buying again.
