It wasn’t until after I had opened the package and started brewing this tea that I had realized that this is a chamomile-lavender blend… sigh I really should read ingredients before I brew!
Oh well, I’ve had several strong black teas this morning, so I guess I’ve nothing to fear from a little chamomile and lavender.
Now that the tea has brewed I can smell the chamomile and lavender… and the hibiscus! After brewing the recommended 3 minutes, I tasted and it was a little weaker than I wanted so I increased the brew time for another 2 minutes.
It’s good – certainly not my favorite relaxation blend out there – but it’s alright. The hibiscus flavor is not overwhelming but does provide a nice body to the cup. The chamomile and lavender taste nice together. And the berry is sweet and tasty. Overall, a nice, relaxing cup… it would be better in the evening though!
