I'm a big fan of nutty flavours in my tea, so I was excited to try it as another option to Forever Nuts. While I was pleased at first, I find it hard to drink a whole mug, as the artificial almond flavour almost overpowers everything else. Great for a once in a while - I'll probably try it in a latte and see how I like it then.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-10-02</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-10-02" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="226594625"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Forbidden Root" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">1</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">addiethebrave</span> from <span itemprop="name">Smells and tastes like the name.</span> <span itemprop="description">Unless this tea really does have cleansing properties, I wholeheartedly will never drink it again. It smelled like wet roots and moss, which I guess would be appealing if you are into more natural teas. Despite the initial smell, I proceeded to brew it and add a teaspoon of sugar and cream to a 16oz serving which is what i would normally do with a rooibos just to elevate the flavour and texture. However, the taste was truly strange. I wouldn't say awful, just plain weird and unsettling. I will try it again without cream and sugar to see if it makes a difference, however, I am apprehensive to do so.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-12-03</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-12-03" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="228474639"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Forbidden Root" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">4</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Love My Tea</span> from <span itemprop="name">Strong flavour but I like it.</span> <span itemprop="description">It has a very strong flavor that could be considered an acquired taste, I don't know if i would say it is fruity at all..

I'm not sure that I would enjoy the tea alone, without milk but in a latte it was very good. It's rich and has a deep flavour to it with the chicory and licorice root. I think it's a perfect fall tea latte. I'll be going back to purchase some loose leaf tomorrow.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-10-13</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-10-13" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="228474406"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Forbidden Root" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Mandiiiiiii</span> from <span itemprop="name">Forbidden root</span> <span itemprop="description">One of my favourite teas ever.

I did not like it. I did give it a good 2-3 sips, and it was just a hard pass for me. My impressions of it were that it felt very similar to the Pumpkin Chai, but with more of a bitter coffee note (from the roasted dandelion/chickory root). I didn't really get any almod from this. It wasn't necessarily terrible or undrinkable, but as-is, I didn't finish the little sample cup. I imagine if you're the type (like me) who prefers sweetened coffee, it might be better with cream or sugar added, but the overall flavour of the tea (in general) didn't make me want to bring home a sample to test that out. I would not blind-buy this tea. I would recommend going to the store, and if you like the smell of it, get a small sample to try.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-10-06</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-10-06" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="226056739"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Forbidden Root" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">KittenSteph</span> from <span itemprop="name">Nutty, sweet, and warm</span> <span itemprop="description">I typically enjoy rooibos, and this is no exception!
