89 Tasting Notes
I loathe the original Sleepytime, I think because of the chamomile. There’s chamomile here too, natch, but much like the proverbial spoonful of sugar, the vanilla in this one helps the medicine go down. I keep a box of this in my cupboard at all times, to be consumed whenever the insomnia beast rears its ugly head. Works for me.
I adore this. I couldn’t even fully explain why. Maybe it’s the brand association more than the tea itself, but this tea is my go-to whenever I’ve got the sads. The whole process of whipping up a cup is instantly comforting. Citrusy without being pucker-inducing, and much more delicate than a cup of Earl Grey. I’ll buy this tea forevermore.
Yeah, okay. I don’t really like chamomile tea (got this in a sampler pack), but If I did, I’m sure I’d like this one. The lemony flavour takes the edge off that weird, dusty, weedy characteristic that I always pick up from straight-up chamomile. I’d drink this tea if it was lying around, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy a whole box of it.
Destinatioooon u-unknown, ruby ruby ruby ruby… chai. This is good! Probably the most flavourful chai I’ve ever had that wasn’t from a concentrate. Great with milk, almost tastes like a chai latte from a coffee shop. Very pleasant aftertaste. I’ll buy it again, the next time a cup o’ chai strikes my fancy.
