Creamy chamomile and herbs. It’s okay but I’m definitely not their target audience as these are not flavors I particularly enjoy. Still it’s always nice to try new things so thank you MissB for the share.

Another tea from MissB! Turns out that I had put aside some herbals to check the ingredients for Bear With Me and CrowKettle… and totally forgot about them. Ahh well. They’re mostly small amounts that I can finish no problem.

I wonder what this tea description means by “elimination”. If I drink it this morning will I need to pee lots? I hope not, as I’m heading out for the day…

The tea didn’t really smell like anything, when I made it last night. It had lots of fuzz and floaties like chamomile, but there’s no chamomile in it. It’s not sweet at all. It tastes like… tree water. Really delicate deciduous tree water. With a little grass. Yep.

It’s pretty good cold as well. But not really anything super memorable or outstanding.

And I’m still wondering what exactly the effects are…

Thanks for sharing, MissB!

Sipdown (126)!

Thanks MissB!

Sadly I think I missed something with this tea because it mostly tasted like chamomile to me with maybe a pinch of herbaceous notes and a pinch of something mildly creamy? It wasn’t bad or anything, but I found it kind of bland and unexciting. I definitely didn’t taste juniper, that’s for sure, and that’s what I was most excited about/looking forward to with this blend so I was disappointed by that a bit.

Can anyone tell me if Ondine means anything or is French for anything in particular? I absolutely adore the sound of this one’s name; there’s something very beautiful/graceful about it but all I’m finding with a quick Google search is a movie by the same name. Is that what this is named after?

EDIT: Ok, did a more thorough search and I guess Ondine is a mythological character/character in a play or something? This is straight from Wikipedia, but…

Ondine, the eponymous heroine of Giradoux’s play, tells her future husband Hans, whom she had just met that “I shall be the shoes of your feet … I shall be the breath of your lungs”. Ondine makes a pact with her uncle the King of the Ondines that if Hans ever deceives her he will die. After their honeymoon, Hans is reunited with his first love Princess Bertha and Ondine leaves Hans only to be captured by a fisherman six months later. On meeting Ondine again on the day of his wedding to Bertha, Hans tells her that “all the things my body once did by itself, it does now only by special order … A single moment of inattention and I forget to breathe”. Hans and Ondine kiss, after which he dies.

I kinda like that; I’m definitely really feeling this name. It’s a shame the tea was disappointing…

Loving the herbal options here in France, which have surprised me at every turn, in every health food store (what’s called “Bio” here, or organic). I had no idea what any of the ingredients were in English, but the fact that it’s also called “Minceur” (thinner) made me think of Stephen King, and had to get it.

Odd flavor combination here that’s hard to describe. I smell a hay-like Thai curry in the leaves, with the flavor more medicinal than anything. It’s not bad or anything, it’s just… very medicinal.

Having a bit of translation issues with one item on this ingredient list (tilleul is lime, aubier is normally wood or trees, depending… but together they translate to linden leaves/sapwood, whereas I think they mean lime leaves. Anyone willing to help welcome.. I’ve asked a French friend for help with this).

Flavors: Creamy, Medicinal

Usually when I see “tilleul” in tea, it’s a linden leaf tea.

MissB

Thank you!

OMGsrsly

Ahh, the flavour makes more sense with linden leaf rather than lime leaf. :)
