The last time I had this tisane I had passed out while waiting for it to brew, so I drank it cold the following morning. Now I have a chance to try it hot.

I steeped the teabag for maybe 10 minutes. The only thing I can taste distinctly is the rose oil. That’s not to say the flavor underneath is muddled, it’s just really well balanced; clean and smooth. Some spearmint, peppermint, and tulsi combined with the chamomile, rose and lavender does help me to relax. If you’re into fungi/mushrooms, give this a try. It’s so easy to drink :)

I find this tisane to be interesting. I used to grow and hunt mushrooms but not for medicinal purposes. This bled contains reishi fruitbody and extracts and lion’s mane extract. If you’re interested in the medicinal uses of these two fungi, I’d suggest researching them. I know one of my coworkers forages reishi to make into a tisane for his wife who has cancer.

Made a cup of this last night and of course I fell asleep before it even cooled. This morning I sipped the 8-hour brew, cold. It had a good spearmint and floral aroma. The taste was totally fine, nothing like the burnt dirt flavor of Choice Organic Teas’ Reishi Matcha. In fact, it tasted very clean. Herbaceous (from the tulsi?) but not stewy, mellow spearmint and peppermint, distinct rose and lavender florals. I couldn’t pick out the chamomile which is the first ingredient. Overall, a more than decent tisane when sat overnight that, even if you’re not looking for the medicinal benefits of mushrooms, I could recommend for its relaxing profile. It seems like it would have a pleasant taste when drank warm.
