I’m not a fan of herbal teas. To me, the majority are much too alike and this, while pleasant, is too.

I steeped this a bit too long so it’s a little astringent. It tastes mostly of mint but has a spice that sits in your throat and on your tongue after each sip. I put too much honey in this cup so it’s far too sweet. I may like this better with a lower steep time and less sweetener. As it stands now, it’s not a favorite.
Flavors: Astringent, Mint, Spices
Admittedly, I’ve not been feeling the best today. We all have our physically off days, and this was one of mine. But even through the ickiness, the soothing, sweet mix of mint and chamomile has been lovely. It almost tastes like there’s honey in it, though I know better. (Another time I may add some, just to see how it goes. I wonder if the sweetness would be a nice complement, or if it would become too sweet with it?)
Anyway, this was a good tea choice for tonight, and even cooled it’s going down wonderfully and soothingly. Hooray for good choices and good cuppas.
Relieved a certain office of a bag of this, and a few other Bigelow blends. It’s not really my thing, but I wanted to try it, just to say I did on here. Chamomile isn’t anything I care about so my review will be biased.
Dry bag smells mostly of mint, and a tad bit of chamomile. Steeped is mostly the same but the hibiscus really comes out. Brownish liquid with chamomile aroma.
I used the bag because I wasn’t in the mood to clean up after making a proper tea, so, meh…
Nice, I enjoy this very much- it gives me a natural, pleasant, sleepy feeling. The taste is soothing, sweet with a touch of orange and mint. The sweetness is stronger thanks to the touch of mint. This is one of my favorite herbal teas, especially for relaxation or before bed!
Flavors: Mint, Orange, Rose, Sweet
I admit to having been spoiled by Harney & Sons’ super fresh and delicious Egyptian Chamomile, but even Pukka Love is a lot better than this Sweet Dreams chamomile blend from Bigelow. It tastes either stale or sour—or perhaps both. Perhaps the mint is old, or perhaps the hibiscus is making the whole mess taste sour. I know that this particular bag is not old, because it came from a new box in my housemate’s cupboard. It’s just not good.
To dump or refrigerate? That is the question.
