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! :)

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (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 was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

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 have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
