This was from TreeGal a while ago! Thanks so much! It’s actually in a package that looks like it contains a teabag but it’s actually a surprising amount of loose leaf! This could have been enough for a teapot… but into a teabag it went, and into a big mug it went. This seemed like it would be my thing. The ingredients are lovely and the name sounded like I would fragrantly be drifted off to sleep on this blustery night. Sadly, there is a flavor note here that seems odd — like licorice — and I can’t tell where it’s coming from. But it kind of takes away from what should be a lovely blend of flavors. I can’t even smell these bright rose petals. Maybe it’s just an unusual flavored chamomile, when usually I wouldn’t have a problem with chamomile. I really wish this tasted like a great mix of these four ingredients: chamomile, rose, fennel and lemon verbena. And I also can have no idea how old this tea is… Oh well, it was worth trying one serving anyway!
