Yawning all over this tasting note and that’s a good sign.

One of my favorite lines in literature/film is from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: “Those of us who’d been up all night were in no mood for coffee and donuts. We wanted strong drink.” Why did this come to mind, you ask? Because frankly, regular ol’ chamomile sleepy time tea is BS. Those of who’ve been up all night are in no mood for bears in pajama hats, we want valerian root!

Also, this tea is really good. I don’t much care for chamomile, it tastes cloying to me, so I appreciate the lemongrass-hibiscus tang in this. The peppermint soothes the throat and it smells really pleasantly herby. Brewing is beautiful to watch, since the pink will slowly spread out in a delicate blush. It also tasted really good with a splash of vanilla syrup, which complements the mintyness in a really interesting way.

Hello, new best friend for sleepless nights. This high-strung girl gives it two sleepy thumbs up.
