I expected this one to have some complexity, given the ingredients. I've been on a roasted tea kick this winter (so cozy!) and this fits perfectly. That roasty tea lays at the base, with the golden snails rounding it out beautifully. Aloe tends not to taste like much, but it's pretty in the brew (gorgeous in the jellies tea in this collection). The light fruitiness 'sweetens' it without really being sweet, and the raspberry leaf and lichen add some vegetal notes that blend into the whole. Excellent rainy day tea.
