Herbal Lush tea consists of a bright blend of delicate chamomile and spicy cinnamon with bits of strawberry and rose petals. The brewed tea produces a relaxing combination that has a mild fruity spark. It is a great evening tea to aid with relaxation and end the day with a smile.
Hmm… chamomile. While chamomile is often something that I would normally shy away from, I’m actually really enjoying this. The combination of chamomile, cinnamon, strawberry and rose make for a satisfying taste. I like how the sweetness of the chamomile and strawberry contrast with the spicy snap of the cinnamon and the delicate notes of rose.
The chamomile and cinnamon are the strongest flavors, but neither is too strong or overpowering. The chamomile presents that distinct “chamomile-y” flavor – apple-like, somewhat floral, and even a little bit pollen-ish tasting. But with the gentle warmth of the cinnamon, it becomes much more agreeable. The spice of the cinnamon and the apple-esque tones of the chamomile work very well together.
The strawberry and rose are the softer flavors of the bunch, but I like their contributions to the cup. I can taste subtle berry flavors that are sweet yet tart, and the rose is sweet and feminine. This is the kind of cup that you want to cozy up to on one of those late nights when you just can’t seem to relax! It is comforting and it will also encourage a sense of calm.
I’ve really enjoyed the teas I’ve tried from TeaScapes thus far. They have a knack for taking the ordinary (chamomile) and making it extraordinary (Herbal Lush Chamomile)!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
