I admit that i do not purchase a lot of Herbal tisanes for review anymore. I do enjoy Herbal teas and they can be very helpful in relaxation and recuperation. As today is only day five out from my return from the hospital, I could definitely use a little of both. As it happens i actually do have a lot of tisanes for medicinal purposes and the main herb I’m reviewing today is Chamomile… *sigh* I’ve always disliked Chamomile. Doesn’t really lend itself to relaxation…
That all being said, i will most assuredly make an exception when it comes to Light of Day Organics. All the plants they grow and handpick for these Herbal teas are simply divine. You will not find a more pure and satisfying Herbal tea unless you grow the plants and blend them yourself.
From the first inhale after the tin lid is opened, i know i have found the chamomile to end all chamomiles. The scent of spearmint is quick to follow the chamomile, and it’s already feeling like Relaxation Blend will probably have me too excited to be able to relax.
The liquor’s aroma is very similar to the loose leaf: a bright chamomile with a hint of spearmint. After taking a sip though, my eyes shot open. The spearmint and raspberry leaf make up a good deal more of the Herbal’s flavor. Relaxation Blends’s spearmint is actually somewhat stopped back in terms of its minty components, as perhaps the spearmint is similarly doing for the chamomile. The raspberry leaf presents itself moreso in the tisane’s texture: a highly feathery, heathery field of wildflowers tongue tingle. Relaxation Blend’s warm amber liquor reminds me of a second flush Darjeeling FTGFOP. All-in-all I’d say this wholly Michigan-grown organic Herbal tisane is quite the catch.
