Last tea log for the evening, as this tea is definitely a before-bed tea (the name suits it well). So I have had quite a few cups of this tea and haven’t logged yet as I just found Steepster last week!
This tea smells very sweet and soft, but lots of licorice. Smells quite a bit more lemony after the water has been added, which I prefer. I always steep for the full 7 mins with this one.
Taste— I’d like to note that the blend I got really doesn’t seem to have many flower-like bits in it! Must just vary depending on the blend..anyways, back to the taste. This time around there is a lot more lemon present! I wonder why..I recall previous cups being sweeter..ah well it’s still good!! There is still a fair amount of licorice sweetness & fennel kicking through, in a subtle way. Must have been more lemongrass in this cup! Pretty smooth and relaxing. Oh, and there is quite a bit of chamomile, how could I neglect that, it’s just so soft and familiar. And I’m detecting a distinct sweetness at the end of each sip. So warming.
Overall, a very nice nighttime tea, doesn’t really make me overly sleepy, but the caffeine-free nature of this tea does relax me quite a bit. It’s a bit of a sweeter chamomile, but I still enjoy it. Wish I could taste a bit more of the floral notes, just for some variety. Still, would probably buy it again sometime.
