Having a lot of trouble sleeping lately, and now that it’s getting cooler in the evenings we’re trying tea to help. I agree with what others say – this really knocks you right out.

We’ve been drinking this blended with the now-discontinued Vata Ayurvedic, but we picked some more up to try just straight, and it’s a much more mellow blend than we anticipated. The flavour isn’t overwhelming, but it’s perfect for a nighttime tea. There’s also a sweet lemony flavour that gets lost in the bold spices of the ayurvedic when they’re blended. On its own, it wasn’t nearly as medicinal as I was expecting, though towards the bottom of the pot it was a bit more tart and acrid.

Mmmm. Tea. I have become a believer.

I like oolongs and greens, and dark smoky flavours. And Earl Greys. All the Earl Greys. I have bent my nerd powers to learning as much as I can about tea and tea culture. I have started to ramble about tea.

Tea. Mmmm.
