67

One of the teas I bought myself to celebrate the end of the semester, and thought I would see how well it puts me to sleep seeing as how I need to wake early tomorrow for work.

The liquor is a beautiful (and surprising) color: steeped this in my glass infuser and was treated to a pleasant delicate pink. Smells mild and minty. Mint teas are actually growing on me, and this one is nicely balanced by the lemongrass. I don’t actually taste the camomile at all. At that end, I get a bitter note that I don’t really appreciate, but I can’t place it – possibly the valerian root?

I’ll have to try this one a couple of times to see if it actually makes me sleepy, or if I’m just beat from staying up late last night…
