Thanksgiving with family was much easier than I expected. I think my brother actually was able to enjoy his day. We all ate too much. This morning I had pumpkin pie for breakfast because I could.
I decided to have an herbal in the middle of the day as this one is billed as restoring the digestive system. Seemed like a good idea. I often have peppermint tea at night (Candy Cane Lane!) and sometimes chamomile, I like it, I just like other stuff better. This one combines peppermint and chamomile and it works. It does have fennel and licorice root but before you go, “Eeeewwww”, they are very light background flavors and are muted by the lemon balm and peppermint. At first this is peppermint. Icy cheek tingling peppermint. Then you notice the apple like chamomile late in the sip. Below it is the mellow fennel/licorice root. At first I thought the lemon balm only served to mute the last two ingredients, then I realized I was catching it in the aroma all along. To me it says a lot when an herbal can bring this many layers to the cup. Very much liked this one.
