This is a really well balanced blend. It has a soft, bright herbal flavor that is clean and fresh without falling into the traps of being astringent or boring. The flavors blend well together: not too much mint, lemon, or lavender. (The lavender’s almost imperceptible.) You can actually taste the chamomile as much as any of the others.

It is a nice evening standby and I anticipate drinking quite a bit of this in the summer as it is quite refreshing and soothing. Well, done TTL!

Bio

I’ve recently discovered the world of loose leaf teas and, more importantly, careful brewing. Wow, what a difference! I liked tea when I was steeping bags of it in whatever came out of the red spigot on the office water cooler but I love, love, love it now.

I heat water in my beloved Cuisinart PerfectTemp kettle and brew right in the cup. Never any sweeteners and very, very rarely any milk.

When not drinking tea, I’ve been known to teach gemology, knit, jump onto airplanes and trains at a moment’s notice, watch sumo, make jewelry, read the first halves of many books, dine finely, sing in the car, design webpages, belly dance, learn about stuff, and try anything I haven’t tried before. If you’re a Myers-Briggs buff, you probably know by now that I’m an ENTP.
