Its OK"For a tea that includes such a cacophony of flavours, this blends together surprisingly well, with the anise being rather subdued. It is complex and interesting the whole cup through."

joshuatreeunplugged.jpgI knew I was in for an interesting cup when I read the ingredients list for this tea: "Kava Kava, St. John's Wort, Damiana, Rosemary, Skullcap, Gingko, Gotu Kola, Cinnamon, Anise, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Ginger, Licorice, and a special blend of natural plant extracts for flavor." I don't prefer the flavour of anise, and it tends to overpower the other flavours in blends, but I wanted to try at least one of the Joshua Tree teas, and this sounded too alluring to pass up.

For a tea that includes such a cacophony of flavours, this blends together surprisingly well, with the anise being rather subdued. It is complex and interesting the whole cup through. You can easily individually detect a variety of the flavours, and a bit of spiciness carries itself into the aftertaste.

Price-wise, this is a little on the steeper side of herbal blends, costing $10 for 25 servings of tea. It is unique enough, however, that I'm sure it is worth the cost if this is your personal cup of tea. Unfortunately, in the end the flavour just wasn't for me. I wouldn't buy any for myself, but I could easily see myself recommending it to a friend if it was something I could see him/her liking.
