Sigh… Another sleepless night, this is the second time this week. I suppose it has something to do with my habit of drinking tea late at night, it’s just a hard thing for me to give up because I really enjoy doing that. Night time is my time of peace when I can truly be alone and savor my tea. Soo, I’m now on the hunt for some kind of decaf or herbal alternative. I’m just a little weary of decaf teas and I’ve never been all that fond of herbals for the most part. So hit me guys, what are some of your favorite decafs or herbals?

Anyways, the review. Hehe. Not much to say about this one, it’s alright I guess. Not great, ever so slightly above teabags in flavor. Easy to overbrew and it seems to have some acidity to it which I’ve never really experienced in tea before. But this is the first tea I’ve had from Ito En that let me down, I would still recommend their teas overall, especially their higher quality Japanese greens.

And now I wait for the rest of the Steepster world to get up because I have nothing better to do… :)

gmathis

Rooibos and honeybush blends are good evening teas—they’re a little bit “heavy” in taste and texture if you’re trying to fool yourself it’s real black tea.

The only tisane ingredient that I truly think assists me with relaxation/sleep is tulsi, and I suppose it’s a bit of an acquired taste.

Michelle

At night, I sometimes do a chamomile-spearmint-lavender-rose blend with a bit of local lavender honey, but I also find that I usually want to drink black or pu’erh teas at night… and then suffer the consequences!

Batrachoid

Oswego (or any plant in the monarda genus) is a great tea substitute in terms of taste. Fresh hops, passionflower, lavender and chamomile all help with sleep. Personally, bancha or genmaicha is usually the comforting brew before bed I need.
