124 Tasting Notes
Even the smallest quantities of caffeine make me feel like my eyes are popping out of my skull, so I was pleased that this had no such effect. This had a pretty classic black tea taste. Nothing complicated. Just tea.
The purple color is reason enough to drink this, but I actually enjoy the flavor. I’m not a fan of fruit teas, but with the right temperature and steeping this ends up tasting more floral. Just be careful not to spill on light clothes!
Grabbed a bag of this during my conference Saturday afternoon, because it was the only thing left. Because of the yellow bag, I was expecting chamomile and was instead hit with spearmint. Bleh.
Every once in a while, I buy a box of Sleepytime purely because of some insomnia induced impulse. Then I’ll brew a cup that evening only to remember that spearmint is my least favorite of the mints. So Sleepytime ends up being one of my tea cabinet staples, purely because it’ll take me years to finish off a box and I just can’t bring myself to toss out tea. I brewed a really weak cup tonight, mostly for the warmth.
