Boredom is setting in now and I just don’t know what to do with myself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_RZAGnFcI4
Had to listen to that after I typed that first sentence. :)
I’m not up for anything thick or rich at the moment and thought a herbal tea blend would be great. So through my drawer I route and pull this one out. Not usually a fan of chamomile but love lemongrass and mint and orange so it could go either way. Still I have to try this at some point.
The raw blend consists of large ingredients for the most part with some finely chopped/dust looking herbal pieces too at the bottom.
It smells like sweet orange with a hint of mint. Very citrusy, waxy, sweet and delicious. Totally not what I was expecting but delighted by it.
Once steeped this tea is yellow in colour with fresh and very minty with a hint of lemongrass citrus.
Flavour is strong but smooth and the first flavours I can taste are mint and lemongrass. It has a little sweetness and floralness to it in the after taste. Not as much orange as I was hoping for, like the raw blends smell promised, but non the less it’s a pleasant drink. Very relaxing and calming.
I have another pots worth of this blend that I will save as my bedtime tea. I could do with the help sleeping this week.
