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. :)

I’ve enjoyed a cup of tea now and then for many years. It was only when I stumbled upon The Tea Emporium ten years ago that I took a keen interest and began to learn more about this wonderful beverage.

Since then I had been a huge fan of Japanese and Chinese green tea. Recently I decided to broaden my horizons and check out the other types of teas out there. Thanks to DAVIDsTEA I developed a palette for herbal and oolong teas.

I came across this site earlier this year when looking up teas to try. The reviews have been most helpful (and I hope what I post offers some assistance too).

Aside from tea a few other things I enjoy are playing the piano, dancing, skiing, kayaking, shooting some pool and having a night out with my foodie friends.
