So this is my first time trying one of the Farm + Forage blends from New Moon – they’re herbal tisanes sourced from small Canadian farms. This one happens to be from Chickadee Farm Herbs in Flatbrush, Alberta, and is a blend of chamomile, lemon balm, nettle, peppermint, raspberry leaf, spearmint, mountain mint, and yarrow.
I like it! Definitely mint-forward, but it has a nice, cooling mint flavor to it rather than the wet rag variety. There is an interesting vegetal/grassy note, I assume from the nettle? I’ve never yarrow, so it could be that as well. There’s a mellow chamomile flavor in the background and a soft hay note. But mostly, it’s minty and refreshing.
Tasty! I don’t know that it’s terribly special, but I’m enjoying it as my before-bed cuppa.
