YES! I’m finally going to write a review for this tea as I’ve bought some for me and am not mooching it from my mom :P. This tea is blissful!

Dry: the thing I love about this tea is how it always seems to change. One day it will smell really minty, the next cup more chamomile, others more floral. It’s always lovely, whatever one it smells like! Tonight it’s mostly chamomile with the mint residing in the background.

Wet smell: Again, this seems to vary depending on what’s in the leaves this time! Tonight there’s a lot of lemongrass and some hibiscus, along with that mint. Mmm, delicious!

The taste: Perfection. A lovely blend of florals with mint and a slight hint of chamomile. Getting quite a bit of hibiscuz tonight, maybe also a touch of the lemon. It’s a wee bit tart, but still delicious. I LOVE this tea!

Overall, this tea is the ultimate for before bed! I can’t wait to get an amazing sleep tonight! Been craving this since I had it at my mom’s a few weeks ago!! Finally have a massive tin of this to enjoy. I highly recommend this tea, as long as you are ok with florals and mint. Anyways, off to relax and sleep for me! :)

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
