Pukka! stop putting marshmallow root in your teas! it tastes like Stevia! No, i will not relax!
Loljk…it’s not that big a deal, but this tea is just meh… after trying Detox, nothing else in their line is exciting.
This is just an average chamomile tisane….so this is what the real deal tastes like, huh?
i can handle it.
Much more herbal than i’ve been led to believe since i’m a big drinker of Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile (which is packed! with flavor, by comparison)…but that’s not what i find disconcerting.
The marshmallow root in this (and i recognize it!) gives an unpleasant & artificial sweetness right at the back of the throat & towards the sides of the back of the tongue (where I believe the ‘bitter’ taste receptors are). I recognize this note because it was used in their Harmonise tea, which also made for an unpleasant bitter-sweetness that was only heightened by the presence of tart hibiscus (but that’s another story).
So in this tea, Relax, you essentially get chamomile, a hint of licorice/fennel & stevia in the aftertaste. Though i appreciate that this is an Ayurvedic blend & hope to get some kind of health benefit out of it, i don’t think i’d purchase this again.
