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

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.
I’ve been trying to do some nighttime blends to see which I really prefer. Right now I’ve not seen a big difference except for Soothing Caramel Bedtime by Yogi. This tastes of, surprise, surprise… chamomile and mint. I’m beginning to think most chamomile teas are same. This one has a natural sweetness but a bit of sweetener doesn’t hurt either. The mint flavor blends nicely with a touch of vanilla. It helps put the chamomile in its place. (Not up in front overwhelming everything.) Besides being good for bedtime, I think this is good for the tummy or a headache, too. I’m still not sure of my favorite nighttime tea but this is still okay. I think I would go with the Soothing Caramel Bedtime. At least it’s different from the others.
I am very new to the world of tea. I have sampled a few tea bags, mainly this one and a peppermint one. Just yesterday I had my first experience with loose leaf tea. This was my last bag of this “Sweet Dreams” flavor. I have already decided that I lean toward loose leaf. I am currently looking to find one for night time :)
This tea is hands down one of my favorites. The mint is not overpowering to the senses, and it does not have a bitter note to it like other teas. I drink it without any milk or sweeteners, but I’m sure it would be just as excellent with a touch of honey. It is the kind of tea that can be consumed at any point during the day, not just before bed! I’d highly recommend giving it a try.
