This really is a beautiful blend. The chamomile blossoms are whole and large (no crushed up chamomile powder here!) and together with the lavender, lemon grass, hibiscus petals, and other herbs, it creates a stunning array of flowers and colors that is as pleasing to the nose as it is to the eye!
And, it’s pretty tasty too. As some of you are probably aware, I’m not particularly fond of hibiscus, but, I’m not finding it to be too overwhelming here. It is mostly noticeable in the color, and just a little in the texture. But this tisane is not tart … actually, it’s quite sweet.
This probably has something to do with the stevia, and to be honest, I am usually turned off when tea companies add stevia to their blends, but, with this blend, it works. It balances out the tart nature of the hibiscus without making this blend too sweet.
What I like best about this blend, though, is not the chamomile, or the stevia or hibiscus… but the fennel and licorice root! I love how the distinct licorice notes weave their way throughout the sip. I also like how there really isn’t one flavor that dominates in this cup. Each ingredient adds a little something to the overall flavor, giving it a gentle spiced note combined with hints of citrus and floral tones.
This is a very enjoyable way to wind down from a long day!
