Scheherazade’s Super Sipdown (Long) Weekend #13
This has to be one of the best herbal blends featuring chamomile that I’ve tried in a long time. Usually, chamomile kind of takes over the show, and it can be very sweet and cloying. I’d read good things about this one, though, which is why I requested a sample with my last Bukiti order.
First off, I can taste apple. It’s more like apple peel than acual apple, if that makes sense, like the very first taste of apple after biting through the skin. The chamomile is the second flavour, but it’s not too strong — just a gentle, sweet, honey-like flavour. It also adds a hint of floral edge. After these flavours comes a hint of orange, and the lemongrass. It’s a beautiful tea to sip on — very gentle and relaxing. I probably should have saved it for a pre-bedtime cup this evening, but I wanted to be sure I’d have time to write a note since it’s the first time I’ve tried this one. If I’m in the market for another chamomile based herbal, this is one that’ll be high on my list. I feel almost sleepy now!
