More chamomile mild-ing the spearmint this mug.

Now that I’ve tried all four teas from LeafSpa, I am paying it forward by sending a sample of each to someone, or two, who comments on any of my tealogs now through next Wednesday, the 4th of August. I will select randomly and I will include this messsage as the first comment on each of my tealogs until then. The teas are: Darjeeling Goomtee, Blink Bonnie, Kenchajangha, and Honeybush Apple.

Backlogging. Two nights ago.

Woke up in the middle of the night. Couldn’t get back to sleep. Drank a mug of this and read. I always forget this tea is more minty than chamomile. There is a distinctive spearmint but the chamomile and other herbs bring it back from being overwhelmingly spearmint.

I keep forgetting that I like this tea. I keep thinking it’s either too chamomilely or too minty. I keep forgetting that the two are well blended. I need to remember and drink this more. This was my reading-in-bed tea last night.

I read two more chapters of Beautiful Creatures last night. The story is picking up and it’s a little better. It’s a bit odd to see a like-struck and moony boy for a main character and a girl who is brushing him off. I’ll be putting Beautiful Creatures to the side a bit because I finally got For All the Tea in China from the library today and it’s a two week check out so I need to get reading. It looks like a short book. But I’m not a good non-fiction reader.

it really doesn’t feel like NF – can’t wait to hear what you think

That’s good to know. I’ve really enjoyed some of the narrative non-fiction. Like The Devil in the White City and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

So-so but at least nicely spicy Mexican food and a cheap tequila fish bowl margarita last night for Cinco de Mayo led to an upset tummy which led to not being able to sleep. I thought a cup of this might be soothing. It was. It tasted a bit muted though. And I fell asleep on the couch with about a 1/4 cup left.

I had to reread your first sentence a couple of times because I kept reading the first part of it thinking that you were describing the tea! Lol!

SoccerMom

I was totally joking with you in your Nepal note and I scroll down and this was the next thing you wrote and my joke was true! LOL

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

Rabs ~ Nope, that would sure be one odd tea though.

SMom ~ lol Yeah, I know. It was fun. I think a very poor week of sleeping and bad allergies added into how I was feeling the next day. Interesting that you read your Dashboard top to bottom, I read mine bottom to top. =)

Rabs

Very interesting. I’d never considered going bottom to top. I’ve always gone top to bottom since it seemed natural to me. I should try bottom up since it follows the timeline. :)

I had a cup of Lullaby Time late last night while reading before bed. I steeped the full 5 minutes again. Not too much spearmint, not too much chamomile. I don’t like it as much when it cools too too much. Some flavor comes out that I don’t like. Maybe I just don’t like lukewarm chamomile. But good and soothing while sipping hot. Nearly finished the whole cup that way.

Likes steeped 5 min.

Backlogging. Very late at night Wednesday.

Another late late night cup of Lullaby Time was had. I steeped it 1 minute longer than the last time. At 5 minutes, it was similar to at 4 minutes with less spearmint, more chamomile, and a softer taste. I definitely prefer it at 4-5 minutes rather than the strong spearmint taste at 3 minutes. I should also note that I drank this cup rather quickly and it was quite hot the entire time.

Ideal steep time: 4-5 min.

I had a cup of Lullaby Time really late at night on Saturday. I got home from my family’s after midnight and after I’d gotten stuff I needed to do for the morning done, I wanted to relax with some tea and tv before going to bed. I steeped it a minute longer this time. Oddly, less spearmint. I could taste the chamomile a bit. Maybe it muted the spearmint.

Lullaby Time is one of my recent purchases of boxed herbals to drink in the evening. I saw no fewer than six “sleepy time” herbal blends at my local grocery. I’ve had the official Celestial Seasoning’s Sleepy Time Tea. I picked the store brand to try this time.

Sight
Dry leaves: Spring green and lighter with cream and tan.
Wet leaves: Bright green with yellow and brown.
Tea: Light yellow brown.

Smell
Dry leaves: Spearmint and sweet.
Wet leaves: Muted spearmint.
Tea: Spearmint with a touch of chamomile.

Taste
Mostly spearmint. Not super mint. Softened by chamomile. Perhaps a hint of citrus.

But did it help you sleep?

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I’m a bit of an insomniac so I’m not sure much, short of strong drugs, would help me sleep on a consistent basis. A warm cup of tea is always soothing and relaxing before bed though. Thinking back to last night, I drank this right before bed while watching Project Runway off the DVR and I was feeling quite drowsy by the end of the show. But it was also a bit after 2am.
