Having sampled this the other day I thought I would get a small amount to have at home.
For the first sipdown I steeped this for 3 minutes at just under boiling water.
While I can’t actually make out any of the fruit contained in this tisane I certainly picked up on the mint. Surprisingly it isn’t overwhelming (perhaps this is due largely in part to the slight understeeping?). It makes its presence known, but not obnoxiously so. I find it quite soothing and comforting. As with a few other teas I’ve had from DT there doesn’t appear to be any aftertaste.
I’m really enjoying this tea. To me, this is the kind of tea you have on a cool autumn night (and we are certainly feeling it here in the GTA this evening!). You’re kicking back, winding down. Perhaps you’re doing a little nighttime reading (or in my case, studying), listening to music (smooth jazz for me).
With the change of season happening tomorrow I can definitely see me having a good amount on hand. This is a great tea to have during this time of the year.
An added bonus – I read up online that not only does valerian root help to promote sleep but it can also help in managing stress and migraines. Looks like this will be my review/study tea as I make my way through my course. :)
