I’m not a fan of herbal teas. To me, the majority are much too alike and this, while pleasant, is too.

The combination of the mint, the tartness of hibiscus and the flowery of chamomile makes for a very soothing brew. These bags are super forgiving to excessive brew times.
That said, I wish each of the flavors had a bit more punch to them. Celestial Seasonings’ Peppermint has a bite to it that the mint here is lacking. Still this is a solid before-bed tea.
Flavors: Floral, Peppermint, Pleasantly Sour
I steeped this a bit too long so it’s a little astringent. It tastes mostly of mint but has a spice that sits in your throat and on your tongue after each sip. I put too much honey in this cup so it’s far too sweet. I may like this better with a lower steep time and less sweetener. As it stands now, it’s not a favorite.
Flavors: Astringent, Mint, Spices
Admittedly, I’ve not been feeling the best today. We all have our physically off days, and this was one of mine. But even through the ickiness, the soothing, sweet mix of mint and chamomile has been lovely. It almost tastes like there’s honey in it, though I know better. (Another time I may add some, just to see how it goes. I wonder if the sweetness would be a nice complement, or if it would become too sweet with it?)
Anyway, this was a good tea choice for tonight, and even cooled it’s going down wonderfully and soothingly. Hooray for good choices and good cuppas.
