My first Teayama tea! This one isn’t even on their website anymore, which is a bit puzzling. It’s billed as a calming herbal, which seemed appropriate since it’s past midnight and I’m craving a cup of tea before bed. The scent is very “herbal” and quite complex – I can detect the licorice root, orange peel, and peppermint, as well as something I don’t recognize that might be the tulsi. It tastes like it smells (in a good way), not too strong, and no bitterness. There’s that coating sensation in the back of the throat and a slight sweetness from the licorice root. I’m not the best judge, but I would say it does have a bit of a calming effect (either that or I’m just really tired and ready for bed – also a possibility!). If you like herbal blends and licorice root, I recommend this one.
Flavors: Licorice, Orange Zest, Peppermint
