I, like almost everyone else who logged this tea, got this as a sample with my order. First of all, I adore mint, so I already knew I would like this one.
If I may digress for a moment: I bought a shampoo once that was lemon verbena scented. I had this idea that it would smell like lemons, having no idea what lemon verbena really was. I was terribly disappointed when I had my head covered in a weedy floral scent. I had purchased it in bulk and had three bottles to go through. I pawned one off on my mother and continued using the others myself. Believe it or not, the scent grew on me and now its one of my favorite shampoos. Strange how things turn out sometimes.
So, back to the tea, the verbena gives a traditional herbal-tea aroma about it. I don’t know quite how to explain what I mean, but it is reminiscent of the herbal tea bags that my father drank all the time when I was growing up. The smell almost makes me think there should be chamomile in it too and I imagine this would blend excellently with chamomile for those who I like it (I don’t, so better for me that its chamomile-free).
In summary, the tea has mint and nostalgic value. It’s a win win. :)
