Leaf Type: Honeybush & Herbal
Where to Buy: 52Teas
I have an odd relationship with chamomile. Chamomile is like the really cute girl that I WANT to like, but she’s so sweet and cloying that I just can’t take her seriously. You know they type: She gets you an anniversary gift for your one week anniversary; wears a t-shirt that professes her love for you and offers you the matching shirt…
I WANT to like chamomile, really I do, but it’s so sweet and heady and flowery; it’s just too much. BUT… a little bit of chamomile with a LOT of honeybush, some lemon myrtle and organic lemon flavors, THAT is a tea I can cozy up with. I hope you enjoy this blend as much as I do.

I put off trying this Lemon Dreams Tisane from 52Teas for a while … why? Well, it’s the same ole reason … chamomile. I don’t hate chamomile. I have even been known … on occasion … to actually enjoy chamomile. But, every time I encounter a chamomile blend … there’s this little voice in my head that tells me “you won’t like it.”
Well, you know what, little voice in my head? You’re WRONG! I do like this. This is really tasty!
The honeybush offers a very pleasing sweetness to this cup, it tastes nutty and sweet with a touch of honey-like goodness. The chamomile is light and floral … and it hasn’t been overdone in this blend. There is just enough. And the lemon myrtle provides a delicious lemony note without tasting too tart. It tastes herbaceous without tasting medicinal … and it is very calming.
This is perfect for one of those nights when you’re feeling restless and something in you just isn’t ready to wind down and relax … and you’ve GOT to get some rest! After sipping on this for a little while, I feel much more relaxed … and I feel that restless spirit settling … getting ready to rest.
A really delightful, soothing blend.
