I bought this on Black Friday but haven’t had a chance to try it yet. My bad.
This is really amazing. I was just sipping away at it distractedly while looking for daycares and I was just hit – whammmo! – with a burst of fresh lime. Wow. So refreshing. I can still taste the chamomile and the overall effect is quite soothing. Like floating on a cloud before sleep. Or some such nonsense.
Bumping the rating on this one since it’s growing on me :) It’s in my sipdown pile for the week and I may just need to pick up a bit more once it’s all gone. Even cold the flavours are nicely balanced. Not a hueg fan of chamomile blends, but since it’s nice to have at least one in the house, this will be my go too since it’s the best one i’ve found so far!
Backlog from last night.
Maybe it’s just me, but there seems to be more apple pieces in this blend than the last time I ordered. I thought this herbal couldn’t get any better. Please let there always be lots of fruit pieces in my cup.
My only complaint is that I always seem to run out too quickly. Very problematic when I want to drink this almost every evening. Instead, I end up partially hoarding it.
Flavors: Apple, Lemon Zest, Orange Zest
Big thanks to Stacy from Butiki Teas for providing this sample with my last order! I accidently let this one sit in my cupboard for a while. Shame on me. But it’s night time and I’m sleepy. This sounds like the perfect tea for right now!
The dry leaf aroma is really surprising to me. I expected it to smell like chamomile, but instead it smells like fruit. The brewed tea aroma has more of a chamomile fragrance to it. Wow. So this is what chamomile tastes like. Hmm, it’s tasty but I’m not sure it’s the flavor for me. I enjoyed the chance to try it though!
I haven’t yet actually tasted any chamomile on its own, so I’m not sure if I can discern it from the other tastes in this. But wow is this a calming drink! I’m drinking it before bed in order to wind down, and it seems entirely perfect for that.
The smell on both the loose tea and the brewed liquid never seemed terribly citrus-like to me, but on tasting it I can pick out more of the apple and lemon. This one seems to sometimes have that same delicious creaminess to it that I love in Butiki’s Cataloupe & Cream too.
Received a sample in my order from Butiki…
This is a great way to end a day of tea. I am ready to Citrus Dream off to slumberland. A delightful mix of chamomile blossoms and fruit. Not tart, not sweet, just soft and pleasant. I can’t taste much of the goji or lemon grass, they are very subtle. I am getting mostly apple and chamomile with a touch of orange. I happen to like chamomile but if you don’t I would of course avoid this. It’s like Sleepytime tea x 10 in terms of flavor and beauty. Very well done for an herbal – another winner from Butiki.
Alright, here we go! :) I’ve been needing to find an herbal tea I enjoy hot, since I’ve discovered recently that tea caffeine really does keep me awake, even if I don’t feel jittery or anything. Plus I wanted to try out a chamomile in loose form for the first time, plus I wanted free shipping on my Butiki order. So it all just made sense to try this! :)
Dry leaf, they look very pretty. Not gonna lie though, they don’t look terribly pretty after they’ve steeped… Something about the way the middle parts of the flowers go, it looks kinda … Hmm. Moving away from the infuser now…
The scent of the tea is pleasantly lemony, and sweet and ends with a flower finish. The taste adds more; a strong yet not overpowering apple flavor, and an almost mint like note? Perhaps the “mint” is the goji berries, as I honestly have no idea how those taste.
This herbal is very nice. It’s complex while still being delicate, sweet without being saccharine, and very flavorful. Absolutely no need to “wake” up the flavor with sugar at all! A very nice tisane. I’ll drink through my 1/2 ounce, and if I’m still enjoying this as much as I am now — I’m a bit weird when it comes to herbals — then I think I’ll order up some more!
