80

I had decided not to buy any more tea until my three orders from abroad that I’m i̶m̶p̶a̶t̶i̶e̶n̶t̶l̶y̶ excitedly waiting for arrive. But I was having some major trouble sleeping for the last couple of weeks, and after trying various things, I decided to pick up a little bit of this tea as it’s locally available, and not buy any others while I was there (that didn’t work out). The girl in the store advised steeping this one for a long time for best results, so I did.

The first part of the sip starts off tasting like your typical chamomile lemon tea, so immediately I thought, ah, I know your game. You’re just like the others, only better looking. But then it threw me for a loop; the juiciness kind of dried out and the sip ended with a slight aftertaste of spice that replaced the tartness of the lemon, which was tasty and cleared my palate before the next sip. As far as its effectiveness, for me it gives more of a body relaxation and makes my limbs feel very loose and gumby-like. It doesn’t particularly make me sleepy, but it does help me relax and unwind after a long day. It kind of feels like having a guilt-free glass of wine. I’m definitely going to go pick up more of this (and nothing else). Maybe I should stop making promises I can’t keep.

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf after a long and uninspiring relationship with teabags. I’ve been in love ever since (sorry bags, I just don’t feel that spark anymore).

Food is a passion for me and my love of scents and flavors has translated into an excitement for trying new teas. I’m trying to expand my palate with all different types, and currently my favorites are oolongs and greens.
