A review of Organic Fairtrade Lemon Valerian by Hampstead Tea London

Company: Hampstead Tea London
Tea Name: Organic Fairtrade Lemon Valerian
Tea Type/Varietal: herbal
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: lightest honey brown
Leaf Characteristic:


1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 200
Time: 2-3 minutes

Using freshly boiled water I put my tea bag in my cup and left it to steep for a few minutes. The tea’s aroma is sweetly of the chamomile and liken to the color of honey or a very light brown. It is soothing as I sip of this tea; it makes me feel calm as the infusion is meant to calm one at the end of the day.

I even added a few drops of my Sleep Support tincture (for those nights when you can’t get to sleep. You can take this tincture straight or in water to help to help you relax and get some shut-eye). I obtained this tincture as part of my summer CSA share from Sweetgrass Herbals (www.sweetgrassherbal.com) and this did seem to liven the cup that much more. The dropper also contains valerian; so it is my double dosage with the hope for a good night sleep.

Overall tasting notes: A calming infusion of lemon and chamomile which goes to making this valerian tea a wonderful relaxant.

Cup’s characteristic: calm and soothing cup of tea

Liquor color: lightest brown/ honey like

Taste: mildly citrusy with hints of chamomile

200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
