It has a nice flowery blend. There is also this sweet aftertaste at the back of my throat (same one as in Celestial’s Tension Tamer) that I just cant place…common ingredients are chamomile and licorice but i don’t think it is either of those.
I really like that sweetness at the end…if anybody knows what it is..and the other teas that have that – pls, let me know :)
Thanks for this sample, Kasumi!

A tea I save for cloudy days, when I’d rather stay indoors. Bought originally because of the description (Amour!) and notes (rose and lavender — I’m a fan of floral teas), but didn’t turn out to be a favourite (I’m not too fond of the taste of chamomile, and it’s the strongest one here). Be careful not to oversteep! Otherwise, a lovely companion for a grey day and a book. A clear, soothing tea, it’s best when you can see the steam rising from your mug.
I really enjoy this tea. It’s hard to come by where I live (a small town in the US), but it smells lovely and is definitely a very flowery tea. The flavor is really light, though, which is great. I can’t decide whether I like it better with a little honey or without, but it seems to be good either way!
I was really excited to try this tisane, and I had had my eye on it for a while. Finally I decided to take the plunge and make the purchase…….and man was I disappointed. I love chamomile, lavender, elderflower and rose….and so I loved the idea of this tea. But it was so weak. It tasted like nothing. Maybe I got a bad box or something, but I ended up using 2 teabags in 10oz of boiling water and never took them out, and the taste was very very faint. Quite disappointing. I will be returning this tisane.
Backlogging from last night.
I don’t drink a lot of floral herbals, but I need to reconsider because this was nice and a pleasant way to wind down at the end of the day. I could pick out the elder-flower, lavender, chamomile, and rose but I enjoyed the tea more when I quit thinking about it and let the flavors blend together. The licorice root gave small notes of sweetness, but thankfully it didn’t dominate the tea. All in all a nice little cup.
This is a mild, floral tea that I would probably enjoy if not for the Licorice. I’m beginning to get the idea that Licorice in any amount just ruins a blend for me. I’ll have to start checking for it and making a point to avoid it in the future.

Well….this was weird. My co-worker and I got a box of this at Mother’s Market today and tried it when we got back to work. After the first sip, she looked up and said, “I think I just drank somebody’s grandma….” Now, that was clearly concerning. Turns out that the perfumey/floral aspect of this tea sort of smells like the quintessential grandmother’s house….like floral-scented sachets mixed with mustiness from the stuff that’s been sitting untouched all over the house. I don’t know. That makes it sound like a terrible tea and yet…there is something super comforting about it. I’m not sure which of the three main flowers gave me this whole impression. I know now that licorice root isn’t my favorite…that weird sweetness that just coats the back of your throat. Not a huge fan of that part. But, overall, I wouldn’t mind drinking a small cup of this on rainy days.
