To start this off, I haven't finished the bag. Just this week, i've been able to consume this tea regularly. So, i'm not a hundred percent sure that I can see a difference in my skin, with this alone. That could change in a month of regular consumption though!
Inner affects? I'm not feeling bloated. Especially during the mooncycle, this time around! It seems to work, in conjunction with black sugar tea. No cramps!
Taste: Popcorn and sweet grass. With an overall midtone of nutty tang in the back of the mouth.
Aroma: Roasted grass for me. Which is nice!
And the seeds taste a bit like maple!
When I drink this, it feels cleansing and soothing, calming. It has a slight sweetness with an herbal woody aroma and delicate flavor. As everything else from here, the experience is fully enjoyable and I look forward to trying more! Gentle is how I'd describe this. I'm very happy to have tried this and finished so quickly! Will be back! <3 :)
