Review of Morning Thunder

1 of 101 of 52 of 520 of 100

Personal preferences and tastes drive all these ratings, but none more than here. Man, was this tea ever a revolting turn-off. The smell raised red flags, and the taste screamed, "never again!"

See, I like teas with strong flavors--as long as I like the flavor itself. This tea uses a decidedly, intensely smoky version of yerba mate. [I don't hate yerba mate, per se, though it's not my favorite flavor...the "Matebeer" soda one can get in Florida is tolerable to me, as is yerba mate candy.]

This is a tea that my tongue interpreted as "barbecue flavored tea". Bleccch. While I love smoked brisket, it would make a terrible tea. Sorry, fans...can't be dishonest and blow sunshine on this one...
