If I had to give this a number based on what it should taste like it would pretty low. Giving it a number the way I make it, well it’s not possible to give a tea a negative number. I’m taking this for insomnia because my doctor’s prescriptions don’t work anymore and I haven’t been able to convince her to prescribe something else. While I do think it’s time I found a new doctor I’m hoping this works for tonight. I brewed this with 6 tsp leaf, 4 tsp valerian root, and four eye droppers full of valerian root extract. I’m hoping it helps me sleep. It tastes positively vile even with added maple syrup and agave nectar.
This tea is just fine and satisfies I specific craving I sometimes have. I would drink it any day but I don’t particularly enjoy or love it. It reminds me of the tea my grandma would give to me when I was a little girl, the kind of boring tea that is nice with cookies. Sometimes I just crave this kind of tea, for me it does not stand out on its own but it goes well with baked goods. The hints of peppermint make it a bit more fun then just any old tea though.
(Basically it is a staple to own something like this for myself, but it is not a tea I would look forward to as a treat. )

Fighting to get on some sort of reasonable sleeping schedule again. So easy to fall off the wagon.
This tastes like peppermint and lemony camomile with the slightest hint of valerian bitterness. I’d like a bit more hibiscus or rose hip tartness. Like a classic sleepytime tea with a sledgehammer hiding in the back room.
High marks for getting the job done.
Flavors: Lemon Zest, Peppermint
Oooo, it smells so pepperminty, and the hibiscus makes it a bright red color—not like a candy apple dyed red, but a natural burgundy. So pretty in my glass teapot. :) I love the whole chamomile flowers in there. It looks like a tea my sister would mix together (she’s recently gotten into mixing her own medicinal teas).
It’s a little too sour to skip the sweetener… dumps in a an entire packet of stevia
It has a sour medicinal smell, possibly from the valerian root and rose hips. Not complaining.
Not too fruity for me not to enjoy hot—I think that’s the peppermint and lemongrass toning down the hibiscus and rose hips. Pretty darn good.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Peppermint
What a great evening tea. The dominant flavour is peppermint, but the lemongrass and chamomile are very noticeable too. It had a relaxing smell and a soothing flavour. The downside? My cats think this stuff is liquid catnip, I can’t take my eyes off it for a second or they will be rubbing all over my cup and dipping their paws/faces in the tea. Also, over steeping brings out too much hibiscus.
