I find the aroma of the brewed infusion to be slightly offensive- tangy and sour. This does not, however, transfer into the flavour. I find the flavour to be dilute peppermint tasting with a mix of medicinal herb taste in the background.

This tea is minty and relaxing. It reminds me of the tea that I have had at spas when I had the time, before I had my son. Having it transports me back to a simpler, more relaxing time!

It is great for the bath, when I am winding down after a long day. It doesn’t have the knock-out, sleepifying effect that it does on the other reviewers for me, but I do find it a relaxing way to finish off the evening. I find it way better than the traditional chamomile and the minty taste is not too strong.

If you want to have a good relaxing night make sure to drink it before going to bed.

I only drink this one when I am having trouble falling asleep. 8 times out of 10 it works. I usually begin to feel drowsy within ½ an hour of drinking it and if I am still up an hour after the tea is gone, I cannot focus and feel pretty dopey. It has a great smooth flavour. I really enjoy the minty after taste. However, if I drink this tea more than two nights in a row I wake up with a headache the following morning.

I love the bitterness to this tea. It doesn’t make me sleepy, but it actually aids my digestion issues. Whenever I’m not in the mood for bitter, I mix it with The Immunizer for a deliciously herbal cure-all. The cinnamon in The Immunizer sweetens it just enough to make this tea perfect!

My friend brought this over to my house one weekend, and let me try it (so kind ;).
I found it comparable to Organic Sweet Dreams by Davids Tea, but better. Not as sweet, perfect, relaxing.

Sipping this tea is like slipping into a warm bed – you feel instantly soothed and are swiftly transported to dreamland.

My cats love this tea. When I make it, I have to make sure to keep an eye on my mug as they will try to steal a sip lol.. it must have catnip or something close to it.
As for me, I think it’s great. I find it helps me chill out before bed quite nicely. The taste reminds a bit of licorice.

Ohhhh what a delightful late night tea. I was a little worried because after I brewed it, the smell wasn’t very inviting but this is really pleasant. I love peppermint all on its own so I’m a big fan of it in this tea, it’s the perfect compliment, keeping the rest of the flavors in check with its cool tingle. Lemongrass is a nice twist. Definately enjoying this one, a perfect before bed blend.
