I bought this only to see if it would help me fall asleep. Friday nights I work until 10 and I have to be back at 6 on Saturday morning, so I am always looking for something to start winding down my system. Usually the only thing that works for me is beer. shrugs
In terms of taste, the valerian root makes this brew bitter when it’s lukewarm. Drink it hot and fast if you can. It’s quite minty and sour from the hibiscus as well. Truly, I won’t buy this again after I finish the 50g bag, but I can appreciate it’s calming effects. After 2 cups I start yawning a bit more (this does manage to re-steep once if you keep the first steep to ~4 mins).
Glad to have tried it. It seems to work better for some and less so for others.
(low rating is for taste)
