Still pretty good! Still rather shocked because of the ingredients as I don’t generally go for half of the items in there! Slightly juicing, chamomile, herbal, floral, citrus. Interesting.
thanks TeaEqualsBliss for including this one in the trade! What the… I’m looking at this list of ingredients and the only one I’m tasting is chamomile. My nose is a bit stuffy right now, I guess. This tea does leave my tongue tangy and sore, don’t know why. And there is a very silky quality to the tea. I’m surprised I can’t find the ginger or the peppermint. Isn’t ginseng supposed to energize? But then the chamomile is making me fall asleep. Really weird.
This is surprisingly tasty. I didn’t think I’d like it as I’m not a big fan of chamomile, I don’t generally favor ginseng, and herbal teas just aren’t really my favorite. But this is quite tasty. Everything is nicely balanced… not too peppery or spicy from the ginger, barely any ginseng flavor to speak of, the chamomile and peppermint are but a touch, and there is a lovely citrus-y tone in the background. I could easily drink this on a daily basis. Definitely one of the better herbals I’ve tasted.

Sample, thanks to Kasumi no Chajin! TY!
Soo thirsty, but I got really distracted watching korean dramas and browsing red bean pancake recipes. Decided to give this sample a go – Iced because I wanted something.. iced. So, I steeped this over ice and orange slices. No sugar.
Pretty good flavor. It’s tangy and tart with some mellow chamomile. I don’t pick up the mint, but bit of a herb taste. Probably my orange slice is messing with flavor a bit, but is a good, unsweetened iced tea. I don’t think i’d order this, but hey – was good to try!
This is a great herbal tea. I’ve had it two nights in a row, and now my sample is depleted. Time to order more! Enough about that, though.
I’m always on the hunt for a soothing nighttime tea with an interesting twist. This one fits the bill. It calms me after a hectic day and soothes my stomach. It’s a mild tea with subtle notes of ginger and chamomile…and something else. I imagine I’m tasting the ginseng, but I’m not sure what ginseng is supposed to taste like. Oh well. It’s a pleasant taste, and that’s all that matters.
