Leaf Type: Herbal Tisane
Where to Buy: Zhi Tea
Our Zhi Signature Organic Restful Blend is pure magic.
A synergy of flavors, bouquets, and a visual delight, as well. We designed this as an evening wind-down drink, but this great as an all-day drink. Naturally zero-caffeine.

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!
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!
