Ginseng. I don’t really have anything against it. I know it’s good for you so I am all for that – But I am not real big on the SMELL of it so I guess that is why I have been putting off trying this one.
As this infuses it totally smells like Ginseng and it’s very herbally to the nose.
This doesn’t TASTE bad tho! Sure…it’s a little medicine-E tasting but it’s subtle. The berries and mint REALLY help this one out! Without those two ingredients I don’t think I would care for it much. But this is alright…MUCH better than I expected. The aftertaste is pretty refreshing.
If you are like me and aren’t sure about Ginseng – I would suggest the HOT version because as it cools I could taste the Ginseng more. I could pick up on the licorice more as it cooled, too. When it’s hot the licorice really was not noticeable.
