Mrs Doyle's Tea

Recent Tasting Notes

It takes something special for me to willingly drink pure herbal teas and tonight I’m going to give this a go. I really need some sleep, just one night of pure, solid sleep. At this point I will try anything.

This blend claims to contain: Chamomile flowers, lemon balm, rose petals and lavender. I can see in the mixture that the ingredients range from being herbal crumbs to large rose and chamomile flowers. The blend as a whole smells strongly of lavender and lemon with the other ingredients blending in too much to define.

Once steeped this tea is golden brown in colour and has a strong and sweet lavender aroma.

Flavour is sweet and rather delicate with dominant lavender and lemon balm tones. I believe the rose and chamomile keep this blend sweet and light sp while I cannot taste them per say I still know they are there. It’s also fresher than I was expecting. As it cools it also becomes creamy and more honeyed.

Overall it’s a nice blend, very inoffensive and definitely a suitable night time drink. I think I have another pot or two worth of this tea so I may also try this tomorrow night. Hopefully this will send me to sleep and cure my insomnia. I can dream…..oh wait…….
