In the can, I smell spearmint and chamomile.
Upon steeping, chamomile is still the strongest thing I taste, with darker notes of the spearmint and tiny bits of the apple with a sour, granny smith peel type taste. The longer it steeps, the more I can taste the apple,and the sweeter it becomes. However, once it passes the five minute mark (as I have steeped it in the past) it starts to turn bitter and have the “old sock” taste some people say Valerian has.
This is an excellent tea for calming the nerves, even if the taste isn’t exactly the most pleasant. It certainly is not unpleasant but it does taste slightly medicinal, mostly due to the slightly bitter aftertaste.
