I’m having this cold, and it’s quite minty, savory, and herbal. I sadly don’t taste the lavender. Actually, there’s something unpleasant in here that’s really bothering me. I think it must be the valerian. I didn’t realize that was an ingredient when I bought this, and I’m really put off by its flavor. I’ve had this four times over the past week, and I’ve liked it less each time, so I’ll pass the rest along.
