If you added the right things to it I feel like it didn't taste all that bad. However I couldn't ever tell if they worked or not. I guess maybe they did because when I went in to get a stress test I was having contractions and I had some that morning also a day after my friend came and got them from me and used them for her pregnancy she went into labor so maybe they work more than I thought I just couldn't feel my contractions. I do intend on buying some more though and seeing how they work with mensuration cramps. The taste isn't horrible it just kind of tastes like you're drinking grass (what tea doesn't lol) but I put lemon and honey with it and it tasted great.
