LemonDreamsTisane Information:

Leaf Type:  Honeybush & Herbal

Where to Buy:  52Teas

Tisane Description:

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.

Taster’s Review:

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.

    It’s the middle of the night and I think I’m going to be ordering this. Maybe I won’t be up every night looking at teas when it arrives.


Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
