After a capital-D Decadent holiday season and a weeklong vacation recently, my body has been feeling CASHED. While I don’t buy into this whole detox tea trend, I do think that my body feels the difference between drinking another cup of peppermint-sugar-coated-chocolate-sugarplum-chocolate sugar tea (mmmm, the holidays) and an herbal blend with some anti-inflammatory herbs.
This tea smells strongly of cinnamon and licorice and tastes the same. I can’t detect any of the red rooibos here, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a hint of hibiscus, a touch of ginger– really, this tea is kind of a mish-mash of all the key players in so many of the herbals stocks my cabinet at the moment.
I’m bummed to see stevia in this blend– my guess is that it’d be sweet enough with the licorice and other herbs alone, but I do get some of that trademark stevia-aftertaste that’s not so pleasant.
This tea might be a bit of an overachiever– so many herbs make for a bit of a competition between flavors. But on the whole, it sips great and is a welcome respite from the sugar-overload of the holiday season. I’ll be enjoying this one until it’s time to start baking some Valentine’s treats!
