Ah, such a nice feeling tea. I tried this for the first time at my cousin’s house and was introduced to it as a ‘sleepy’ tea. Not only did it put me to sleep but it left me wanting more in the morning. Gives off a fruity and fresh taste but at the same time, it really does make me feel like this was something my mother came up with and made me drink after 6-year -old me was upset about something. It makes sense why this is my 6-year-old’s sister’s favourite!
My sister bought this and I took a few sips from her cup.
I’m loving the peppermint and the fact that the chamomile is not too powerful. Also, it’s great that there’s valerian root in here and that you don’t taste it (because frankly, I love valerian but hate the taste). My sister said that it helped her sleep 3 nights in a row. Must buy.
Will edit this log when I manage to purchase some.
Finally I have managed to find a tea at David’s with lemongrass that doesn’t just taste like that ingredient. I’m not a huge fan of the overall flavour, but it is enough proof to give me hope that it is possible for future teas to not just be one note.
I can see how I would really like this one when I’m sick, it has that “get all better” feel to it. I suspect that’s why it isn’t vowing me right now, I’m in decent health. On the fence with this one. I don’t hate it, but it isn’t telling me I like it, either.
A very relaxing herbal blend, but a hint of bitterness… perhaps the valerian? The chamomile isn’t overly strong, which is nice, but adding some extra peppermint (I have a plant on the windowsill) made it even better. That said, I like Teaopia’s Sleep Well blend a bit more, although Mother’s Little Helper is still a nice cup before bed and it does help with sleep.
