39 Tasting Notes
My sister, Em, gave this to me for Christmas this year. She gave us each teas that were supposed to match us, and I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure what she was thinking on this one. When I smelled it, the vanilla overpowered everything, with a sweetness that reminded me of potpourri. But, I gave it a try.
The first cup was good, as were the next few, but the strong, sweet vanilla continued to overwhelm the rest of the flavors. Until this evening, when I finally caught a whiff of cinnamon. I love cinnamon tea, and with the sweet vanilla this has become one of my favorite flavored teas. I can imagine it would be good as a tea latte.
Just finished the 2 oz. I bought to try this out. I started having just a cup in the evening, but this week I began brewing a pot before bedtime as they suggested. I’m not sure if it has helped me sleep, though.
I like the flavor of chamomile, which was my bedtime tisane before I tried this. This blend has a certain tang that took some getting used to. I think it might be fennel. Anyway, it’s not bad, but I think I’ll go back to plain old chamomile.
