Leaf Type: Rooibos & Herbal Tisane
Where to Buy: Good Life Tea
This blend of rooibos, chamomile and peppermint is powerful mix of herbs known for their calming effects. Chamomile is the ancient herb from the Roman empire and has been used to bring about restful sleep. You can actually see the chomomile flowers in the blend. Rooibos is a relative new arrival, only used in the last 200 years as a tisane. Grown only in the Cederberg, South Africa rooibos is naturally caffeine free, and is loaded with anti-oxidants, which prevent a many diseases. It is the reddish brown leaves in the mix. The last ingredient, Peppermint has a huge calming effect on the stomach as a digestive and gives this tea nice finish which lingers for a bit. Peppermint is the green leaves in the tisane.
Enjoy this tea to bring calmness to your day or just prior to bedtime. Because it contains no caffeine, its safe for children to enjoy. Create a nice evening ritual with this herbal tea.

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!

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!
