I wanted to get a cup of this tea because I saw the big pouch of it at the cafe and the ingredients looked promising. Of course, this tea company has no online store and I don’t now remember everything that was in it. There was for sure lemon verbena, rose petals, valerian root, and I think chamomile and maybe also lemongrass? Oh yeah, and strawberry pieces.

Anyway, this is pretty tasty. It’s lightly lemony, appley from the chamomile, and I do get a hint of strawberry but not too much. Not really any rose, unfortunately, but I feel like it gets drowned out pretty easily. I like this tea but I’m not sure it’s quite the herbal blend for me and they only sell it in ginormous bags. I think I want more verbena and less chamomile. I have a feeling I might be blending my own sleepytime herbal at some point. I’m also not sure that I want valerian in an every-night kind of tea. But it is pretty tasty.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
