But! I did previously consume a tea that smelled like delicious, and it was no so in liquid form. So I went for it!
I will say this, it doesn't taste as awful as it smelled. It didn't taste good, but it definitely smelled worse. And boy did this one have bite. It doesn't bite you right away. I braced myself for it, thought I was mistaken, but by the 2nd sip I realized "There it is!"
I made it to about four sips before abandoning this cup.
Verdict: Hell no.
But, hey, I'm proud of myself for trying something new!
