drank Sweet Dreams by Lupicia
10 tasting notes

Ingredients: cut ginger, chamomile, dried apple, fennel, blue mallow

This was my first chamomile tisane, so this opinion will not be expert!

I did not care for the taste of chamomile when I first got this, because the sort of floral/soapy smell put me off. However, I kept trying it for a warm drink in the evenings and started really liking it.

Ginger and fennel seed are traditionally used for warming and blood circulation, while the mallow and chamomile are for relaxing. It’s overall nice for digestion and seems to attack insomnia from both the being too-keyed-up and my-feet-are-cold causes. The apple is a subtle and comforting touch.

I recommend steeping this in a clear vessel- the mallow flowers in it initially turn the water an almost glowing blue! Over the course of a few minutes, that color changes slowly to green, then yellow as the chamomile releases its color into the infusion.

One downside – the flowers in it are very fine, so if you use a tea strainer or an in-pot guard rather than a disposable bag, they plaster all over the place and it’s difficult to clean.

I’m sorry that Lupicia doesn’t seem to stock this any longer- I liked it enough that I may try to blend the ingredients myself to make more once it’s gone.
