This is a somewhat tricky tea to rate. Going on the taste alone, it’s not one that I would willingly seek out. It’s very medicinal, both in taste and smell. The smell of the tea, which sorta reminds me of bug spray, quickly takes over the entire room. Strong fennel taste with a musky sort of sweetness, hints of nutmeg, citrus, and mint. Similar flavor profile to Yogi bedtime tea but thankfully no stevia in it to amplify the funky stuff.
Now as a sleep aid, I would say it works almost too well. I used less than half the quantity of tea the instructions called for and fell into a deep slumber less than an hour later. Didn’t feel like waking up the next morning and felt groggy most of the day.
So yeah, not exactly a pleasant tea but it did help me sleep. I’ll still reach for chamomile to help me wind down in the evening and reserve this for those occasions when I’m having trouble with insomnia.
