Thursday Tea Time - Take 2

Another tea, another try -- Zhi - Turkish Spice Mint

Price:  $3.99 at Whole Foods
Size:  0.6 ounces/17 g
Caffeine:   No
Type of Tea:    Herbal Tisane
Steeping time:  7 minutes
Mix ins:  Nothing
Fragrance:  Peppermint and clove - very pleasant
Ingredients:  Organic peppermint, cinnamon, ginger root, licorice root, cardamon, cloves, stevia leaf and vanilla essence.
Opinion:  This smelled wonderful in the bag, but the stevia made it too sweet,  too licorice-y.  Stevia leaves really oomp up the sweetness, however, they can impart an anise flavor which can overwhelm the tastebuds, at least to me.  I wish it didn't have the stevia, for the other ingredients would have been an awesome blend.
Rating: 0 for me, but your rating could be higher if you don't mind stevia.
So pretty, such high hopes
