I needed a good, calming tea for last night before bed. This was one of the teas I ordered to get free shipping. It’s okay. I’m not sure I really gave it a fair shot last night, so I’ll try again.

I’m pleasantly surprised by this tea. Dry, the aroma is so strong that it can be overwhelming, but once it’s steeped, it mellows out and tastes almost rich, but not cloyingly so. I don’t really like chamomile tea, and got this as a gift, so I was reluctant to try it, but quite happy with how it turned out. I don’t know if it’ll become a favourite, but on the first try, it’s not bad at all.
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Licorice, Orange Zest
Mother’s Little Helper has been my night time ritual for the last few weeks. I really like it. Tonight however, I decided to have Sweet Dreams instead… And you know what, I might even like it more. I can really taste the fennel and a little bit of licorice. It’s quite good. Best of all the chamomile is doing its job and it is asking me sleepy!
My ultimate sleepy time tea!
Strong hit of chamomile followed by a licorice note and ending with a slight citrusy feeling. I use this and Mother’s Little Helper at night to help me sleep (or come down from the sick amount of caffeine I ingest throughout the day :P) I keep forgetting about how much I like this tea, and I’m almost out. If I have any issue with it, it’s that. It’s forgettable.
I’m not convinced I like the licorice in this tea. It seems very heavy compared to all the other light yumminess in this tea. Otherwise, I really don’t mind it. I haven’t had many chamomile teas before, so I don’t have much to compare them to. It’s tasty though. I think it would be a nice, soothing tea when sick, with a little honey.
This is my day #8 of the David’s Tea “24 Days of Tea” advent calendar.
I LOVE the fennel and licorice dance going on in my mouth when I drink this. I also love how the chamomile isn’t over-powering (I can barely taste it, but for me that’s a good thing). I may or may not re-buy, mainly because there are a few other chamomiley type teas at Davids that I need to try. This herbal doesn’t withstand re-steeping, so I use a little less than recommended and let it sit a couple mins longer. Tastes comforting :)
