I sampled this tea as part of my David’s Tea 24 Days of Tea advent calendar. It was a mostly herbal blend that basically tasted like a lemony rooibos. All in all it was a rather blah cup of tea. There was no astringency but the aftertaste came across as medicinal. It’s rare that I strongly dislike a tea but that is what happened here. I tried to be objective about this tea despite my reservations. Health benefits are not why I drink tea so detoxing is not something that I am necessarily interested in. The description on David’s Tea’s website does not give very much information on what exactly it was designed to. It would have be helpful to have a breakdown of the role of each of the ingredients as I’ve seen on many other “detoxification” teas.
