Very strong lavender, and not at all herbal tasting, despite all the herbs. Really wish you could taste the rose!
“2 teabags for 300mL water @100C, steeped 8+ minutes, drunk bare. Even two teabags don’t make this taste any better. I smell more roses. That’s it. This could be so much better. Revising...” Read full tasting note
“Wow when I opened the tin I thought this seemed more like something better suited to a bath soap/soak. Truth be told it also smells that way while I’m letting it infuse. On the upside it...” Read full tasting note
“tastes like a balanced blend of lavender and rooibos, with a hint of rose. Not too perfumey or too woody or too “herby.” Ok I guess. Will let you know if it calms me down. I do like...” Read full tasting note

DO NOT DRINK THIS TEA if you have or have had liver problems, frequently use alcoholic beverages, or are taking any medications.
Kava came under the FDA’s scrutiny after a number of European reports that it might cause damage to the liver – including hepatitis, cirrhosis, and liver failure. German & Swiss health authorities have identified approximately 30 such cases, including four cases requiring transplantation, and one death. As a result, regulatory agencies in Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, & the U.K., have taken actions ranging from warning consumers about the potential risks of kava use, to removing kava-containing products from the marketplace. In the U.S., FDA has received several reports of kava-related liver damage, including a report of a previously healthy young woman who required a liver transplant. Although the incidence appears to be rare, FDA believes consumers should be informed of potential risks.
Kava is ranked among the top 10 herbs sold in the United States and Europe. In a double-blind clinical study testing Kava’s reputed stress relieving properties, Kava was proven not to relieve anxiety more than the placebo (study conducted in 2005 by the University of California: San Francisco). Conclusion: There’s no reason to risk your liver in the hope that you’ll be less stressed out. Drink a different tea!
