20 Tasting Notes
The comfortable sweater of teas. I bought this to serve a purpose as one of my pre-bed teas. However, I never expected it to be THE tea for me to wind down to. It’s comforting and my love for it happened slowly and gradually. It usually takes me over a year to finish teas because I have such a variety to choose from. However, I finished this one faster than any in recent memory.
I don’t necessarily know if the valerian is working, but hey, maybe there is a placebo effect. Furthermore, I love mint teas in the evening. I usually hate hibiscus in teas, but the other flavours (mint, valerian, lemongrass) mask it.
Flavors: Herbaceous, Lemongrass, Peppermint
I know someone who loves this tea, but I’m not so keen on it. It seems to be neither green or chai. Maybe I like my greens actually strong and fresh and I like my chai spicy and intense. So this tea could be at odds with itself. I find some Stash teas overload on the spices more than the actual teas. I’ll pass on this tea.
This was one of the most expensive teas I’ve bought and quite overpriced considering it’s a herbal. I had it the first time I went to a nice spa/salon. They brewed it perfectly that I have never gotten it quite right. It is a nice tea though and one that should not be steeped for too long. Very relaxing and mellow if you like licorice. I don’t think I’ll repurchase, but it has lasted me ages and it does have nice packaging.
