This tea is an elixir of the gods. The licorice gives it the sweetest flavour, successfully masks the bitterness of the valerian root, and pairs perfectly with the oat flower. You just get a hint of the chamomile and lavender, just enough to know that it’s there, and my goodness is it ever nice to fall asleep to! I just wish I could drink this all day long. I can’t wait to try more of Pukka’s blends.

Going to bed, so this must be appropriate.

Having a little trouble drinking this tea, but not because of the taste.
One of the cats are practically following the mug around the table.
Must be something like catgrass in the tea?

The tea has a nice yellow color. Oh… wait a moment… the other cat is coming now.
Rubbing herself all over the teabag – Thank you sweetheart, I wanted to reuse that one!

Anyway, my first impression of the tea is a strong smell of lavender.
The second impression was: …Hmm it taste like lavender too. It has a faint taste of liquorice, but it’s very very faint.

It’s not bad, but I am not a lavender fan.
So I guess it’s a OK from me.

Tastenotes:
It’s bitter and sweet at the same time – like dark chocolat.

I really like this tisane! I realised that I might not be sleeping too well because I was drinking too much tea at night. I now drink this and love it. Warming, calming, relaxing. I’d highly recommend this.

(Upped my rating for this as it remains one of my favourite non-tea teas! – great for evenings!)

The tea bag smells pretty bad, so I was worried. Actually, this tea tastes good. The primary flavor is chamomile with a slight sweetness from the licorice at the end of the sip. I’m having a nice time tasting this warm, but I can tell it would be great cold. I wish I could taste the lavender, but I can taste hints of indistinguishable other herbs. I have only a single tea bag of this, but I would totally grab more if I had the chance to get it for cheap. It’s always nice to have a tea of this variety around.

I’m always up for trying a new sleep tea, and this one jumped into my basket last time I went to the supermarket. I had some success with Twinings’ new Sleep Superblends, but it did give me crazy dreams (as does Bird & Blend’s Dozy Girl). They’re both effective, but I’d like to find one that works without bizarrely vivid dreams as a side effect.
I suspect I’m not going to enjoy the flavour of this one particularly, since it contains liquorice (basically my nemesis). I don’t necessarily think flavour is the most important factor when it comes to sleep teas, though, so I’m willing to overlook a degree of unpleasantness/strangeness if it works. If it tastes nice, it’s a bonus! This one also contains flowering oat tops, chamomile, lavender, limeflower, valerian, and tulsi. I suspect it won’t be particularly effective for me based on past experience with similar ingredients, but I’m willing to give it a decent chance. The efficacy is something I’m going to have to comment on in a future note, though, since I don’t know yet how that’s going to work out.

In terms of flavour, it’s actually more palatable than I thought it would be. The liquorice is there in the background, but it’s not too obnoxiously sweet. It does linger a bit in the aftertaste, but I can perhaps overlook that if I try really hard. It’s certainly a very herbal tasting blend, as these things so often are, but it’s reasonably gentle and really quite soft tasting compared to some I’ve tried. Possibly it’s the oat? It comes across quite…milky and starchy aren’t quite the right words, and oaty isn’t descriptive enough, but perhaps you know what I mean? If I manage to work out what I mean, I’ll be sure to let you know.

The chamomile and lavender are present mostly in the mid-sip, adding a mildly floral sweetness. There’s a hint of earthiness, too, but on the whole it does well to disguise it’s more pungent ingredients. No one thing really dominates, which is good in some ways (there are a lot of ingredients in here that would never make it on to my favourites list), but basically means that it just tastes confused. It’s not particularly cohesive, and not particularly tasty, but it’s not bad – and not bad is much better than awful in my book.
I’m going to rate this one around 60 for taste, since I don’t mind it – I should probably have my own scoring scale for this kind of blend, since I have different expectations and I tend to be more forgiving of flavour if it works well – there are more things at stake than enjoyment, after all. I definitely wouldn’t drink this one for pleasure, but if it helps me sleep – I’m there! I’ll probably increase my rating a little if it actually does, but I guess we’ll see about that over the next few weeks. I’m not put off so far, though!

I like a cup of tea before bed, this fits the bill. I am not a big fan of chamomile, this is heavy chamomile, the good news is that it also tastes and smells of licorice – which for me, is a favorite.

This came in my Pukka sampler
I didn’t add anything to this cup of tea. I actually think any additives would overpower the flavor. Flavor wise I can taste the Licorice root but it’s very light, but I can also taste the Chamomile which is surprising since licorice root is usually always overpowering. I think I’m also tasting the oat straw quite a bit. The valerian root is there but very subtle. The only ingredient I can’t seem to taste is the lavender which is disappointing. It’s not a bad tea but I definitely prefer CS Sleepytime or Chamomile flavorwise over this tea. This tea is also about six dollars more than the CS teas because it’s organic.

I’m not a fan of licorice, so it makes sense that I don’t love the taste of this tea. I also don’t find it very “soothing” to drink — I don’t get that warm feeling from it that some teas give. I probably wouldn’t buy it again, especially because drinking it before bed was giving me nightmares (due to the Valerian root ingredient, which is known for stimulating dreaming).

Flavors: Licorice

This is not my favorite night time tea. I am not a big fan of licorice and that’s what I get from this tea.

On the other hand, my cat loves this tea and often grabs the label to try and pull the bag out of the water. She also steals the bags out of my tea box. She doesn’t want to ingest it… she just wants to hold it and rub her face all over it. It seems to act like a cat nip to her. I wouldn’t recommend leaving any felines alone with access to this tea haha!

I don’t mind recommending this tea; however, I have night time teas that I enjoy more.

I use 1 bag in 10 oz of boiling water and I often allow the tea to steep as I drink.

Found this tea about 2 months ago. Love, love, love it! Tastes and smells so nice. Cats love it too! I wish I could drink it in the day but it does make me sleepy, so it wouldn’t be the best idea! Look forward to my evenings so much more now!
