I know that I’ve often said that I’m not a big fan of rooibos and I’m also not a big fan of chamomile. Oh, I like both of these herbs alright. I’m just not wild about them and I can think of other herbs I like much better.
Like peppermint. I like peppermint. And what makes this Organic Gentle Slumber so tasty IS the peppermint. The peppermint is the strongest flavor in the cup, so I can drink this tisane without tasting too much chamomile or rooibos. Bonus!
But even though the peppermint is strong here, it isn’t an overpowering flavor. There is some nutty flavors in the background. A touch of honey like flavor. A whisper of floral tones in the distance. And these flavors add a little bit of dimension to the cup so that it’s not all about the zesty peppermint.
And even though the peppermint is zesty, overall, I find the tisane to be soothing and quite relaxing to sip. It’s a comforting drink to enjoy before bedtime and the chamomile and rooibos are both known for their calming properties.
A great choice to inspire a good night’s sleep!
