I tried all flavors of Honeymoon herbal cigarettes and this seems to be the best one. All herbal cigarettes are harsher than regular cigarettes, at least for me. The taste is not that bad, but the residual odor is quite nasty. I guess we get used to it. The ginseng cigarette is, to my experience, the one that offers the best experience overall, the one closer to a real cigarette. If the taste repels you, you might want to try the menthol ones first. The menthol flavor helps to get accustomed to the taste of herbs. I tried smoking just herbal cigarettes for one day and my cravings for nicotine were so much easier to deal with and usually they are very bad and I can't resist the call of a cigarette.
