Taster’s Review:

I love the name of this tea.  If you’ve read many of my posts, you probably are aware that I’m not only a tea enthusiast, but I also love art.  My favorite work of art of all time is Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh.  In fact, the tea mug from which I am sipping this tisane at this very moment is a “Starry Night” mug with a print of the painting on it.

However, I wasn’t so sure that I’d love the tisane.  It is a chamomile blend, and chamomile is one of those ingredients that doesn’t exactly excite me when it comes to tisanes.

But, I must say that this tisane is actually quite tasty.  The combination of ingredients just seems to work.  (Check out the list of ingredients above, this tisane has quite a bit going on!)  The fruit-like tones of the chamomile melds together with the lemongrass and the hints of fruit flavor in the fruit leaves to give it a hint of fruity essence without coming across as too fruity or sweet.

It has a herbaceous overtone, but again, it isn’t too overwhelming nor does it end up tasting medicinal.  It tastes soothing and serene … in fact, this tisane makes me feel very much the way the painting makes me feel:  calm.





Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
