It definitely does NOT taste like medicine!  The tonic has a consistency that is thicker than your average tea, closer to a juice.  It is a very smooth brew with an excellent blend on the herbs.  One particular ingredient flavor does not dominate over the others.  The flavor is a mellow but rich berry.  Sweetening effects from the Erythritol and Monk Fruit are just enough to bring the flavor to the point of balance without making the overall flavor sweet.  The sweetness lands in that perfect balance of not sweet, not bitter but not unsweet.
