Another mamaki tisane! I think I have one more left after this?

This was very similar to how I remember the other brand tasting, so it’s nice that it’s consistent. Very light and airy, almost reminding me a bit of a white tea? Some very soft hay notes, gentle grain flavors, a touch of milk and honey. It’s interesting because the aroma while it was steeping was quite herbaceous and grassy, but there’s no trace of that in the taste.

I find this sort of mellow herbal very relaxing before bed, so I’ve been enjoying these mamaki tisanes. The last one I have is a blend, so it’ll be interesting to see how the mamaki interacts with other ingredients.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Creamy, Grain, Hay, Honey, Milk, Oats, Smooth, Straw, Sweet

I’ve been reading these Hawaiian tisane reviews with great interest—all of the herbs are new to me!

Picked up this small pouch in Hawai’i, randomly at a bakery we visited.

It’s honestly so delicious, I was shocked. Have I never had lemongrass plain, is it always this good? It’s like someone took a lemon drop and made it into a fluffy marshmallow cloud. So light and and airy but still full of sweet lemon flavor. Soft, mellow, oh-so-comforting. And surprisingly doesn’t have much of an herbal note at all…

So now I feel the need to try some plain lemongrass from another company to see if I have the same reaction to it, since this one doesn’t seem to be available online. Anyone have any recommendations?

You could try iherb or NM tea co. I bought some from San Fran herb, but you have to buy a lot they only sell in bulk. I find lemongrass takes the edge off bitter teas, and I like it blended with camomile. It’s great iced too.


The only plain lemongrass tea I have had was snipped from lemongrass that I was growing, but it was definitely candy drop lemon flavored, although I don’t think it was at all creamy.
