This is a spicy/sweet combination, very unusual for a camomile, and I like it.
All the talk of the new DAVIDsTea fall collection made me want something a little spicy before bed, but I need to sleep deeply tonight, so a herbal was in order.
Enter Love tea. Bingo.
How many teas with the word “Love” in them do I own? At least three, now that I think about it!
I’m almost through this, but its easily got in my local area, so it might very well wander back into my cupboard after its through.
I am on a mission to taste different Chais. I really enjoy the Pumpkin Chai and the Coco Chai Rooibois from David’s Tea and the Chai Spice from Stash.
I find that this one has too much cinnamon in it. Just when you smell it you can tell. Also, I hate that they added liquorice. It makes it too sweet for a Chai. I like my Chai spicy!
I find this to be quite a full bodies camomile, if that makes any sense. I find most camomiles to be a little bland, so its nice that this one has a distinct flavor to it. Its almost a little bit spicy, which I like, but still a good, soothing cup in the evening. And the different floral notes are interesting. I particularly was interested in the addition of rose, which I hadnt seen before.
I absolutely LOVE this tea! I’m not a huge fan of mint tea, but this one made me a believer! I could drink this tea every day it’s so lovely! Nice mint (obviously) flavor, but not overpowering in the least bit. I add a bit of honey to my cup, but it stands well on it’s own. Sometimes I prefer no added sweetness & it still tastes great!
I like most of Pukka’s teas. This one is a bit mild in taste for me, but I guess that’s what you get with a chamomile base. I taste chamomile and a hint of licorice. I’m afraid I don’t get the vanilla at all.
I’ve had a raging headache all day, and this is a nice relaxing tea to have before I go to bed.
As a lover of all the ingredients in this herbal infusion I was stoked to happen upon this on the grocery store shelf. Tasting this tea did not disappoint — lots of licorice flavoring with an undercurrent of chamomile and marshmallow.
However, I will warn anyone who doesn’t know about the side effects of real licorice root: hypertension and edema are rather common with even moderate consumption. This tea has enough in it that after 3 nights of drinking this before bedtime I found myself with bad hypertension for about 4 hours despite no history of it.
So, if the flavors appeal to you go for it, but know what you could be getting yourself into.
I had this at a local restaurant as an appetizer recently and I was surprised (pleasantly) by it. I do love ginger tea, but this is a sweet and spicy one, not just the spice. I often drink it to settle my stomach or to help digest after meals but the sweetness of this really made it feel like a treat before my meal. I wouldn’t buy it I don’t think, but I’m really into loose teas over bagged teas, however I would certainly order it again!
It has a nice flowery blend. There is also this sweet aftertaste at the back of my throat (same one as in Celestial’s Tension Tamer) that I just cant place…common ingredients are chamomile and licorice but i don’t think it is either of those.
I really like that sweetness at the end…if anybody knows what it is..and the other teas that have that – pls, let me know :)
