The tea in my cup is actually a much brighter orange than that of the picture. It’s almost pumpkin colored, and I only steeped this 3 minutes (recommended is 2-3 minutes)

This tea is definitely definitely herbal- distinctly lacking in sweetness. I actually find it tastes very strongly of ginseng, and not at all like jasmine or rooibos. I suppose I can taste the lavender and chamomile too, but no orange either. I’d like this a whole lot more if the citrus and jasmine were more prominent, or the jasmine for that matter.

As it stands, it really does taste like chinese medicinal tea, like something I might have received in the past from an acupuncturist. It’s not too different from when I turn to Traditional Medicinals’ or Yogi Teas’ blends.

As for the effect, I haven’t tried this while really tense yet so I’m not sure if it would relax me per se. Drinking it right now, I do feel pretty mellow.. maybe even a bit drowsy. But I think I was in that state beforehand as well.
