I stopped in at the Teacup to get some refills on our household favorites, and I also picked up a couple ounces of their Wu Wei blend.
This one has less hibiscus and much more lemon – and it’s certainly not listed in the ingredients, some combination of herbs gave me a vague impression of black pepper. It might have been the licorice and lemon, and I suspect the cloves may have helped, too. There is still a hint of sweetness underneath it all.
Not exactly what I’m going for when I order Wu Wei, but it’s still a very interesting blend, and should be tried if you’re in the mood for a bit of a bite from an herbal tea. It feels like something I’ll reach for when I’m kicking a cold.
