Another backlog from last night, and a first tasting note apparently. No pressure.
I grabbed this one because of the Valerian root. I don’t know if it’s a complete placebo effect, but it actually seems to help my brain wind down when nothing else will do the trick. The problem with it, is that it kind of tastes and smells like feet. Not so good for consumption in tea form, right?
There’s enough other stuff going on in this blend that unless I’m really looking for it, I can totally overlook the presence of valerian. It’s mostly a cup of peppermint and fennel, with a touch of lemon balm that rounds it out. It’s far less offensive and medicinal than Yogi naturals or any of those. And there’s no licorice cloying sweetness coating my tongue.
But more than that, I slept well. So a win in my book.
