Oh, Serenity, how happy I am to have found you! I have several herbal teas that are my go-to night time teas. This one will be joining them soon. I do enjoy a relaxing tea with chamomille at night after I put that 2 year old wrecking ball to bed…lol. Tavalon lists the ingredients for Serenity as chamomille, peppermint, lemongrass, rooibos and vanilla. When I initially read them I was concerned that the peppermint would totally dominate the blend and that the vanilla would be an afterthought if at all detectable.
This one is prepared like a typical herbal–212 water temp and steep for 5 minutes. It brews up to a nice yellow-orange color and smells wonderful. Obviously, peppermint is the dominate scent and taste, but I can also detect some chamomille and vanilla! The lemongrass and rooibos aren’t too prominent for me, but this wonderful. I do like that it has a little rooibos because one can never get enough antioxidants. I tasted this one both with and without a little sugar and could drink it either way. I also love having a bit of peppermint with my night time tea as it is naturally soothing to the tummy and it leaves your mouth feeling clean. However, for me it is that hint of vanilla that makes this tea special though. It is a little subtle but makes it even more soothing and delicious.
I could stand for this to have a touch more vanilla and may add a bit of vanilla rooibos to the concoction so that I can have it. However, I just love this and am pleased that I think I can still get two more cups from my sample! I suspect this one will be a regular in my tea stash. It is a tiny bit pricey unless you order it in larger quantities so I am gonna hurry and place my order while that 20% discount for Teaviews readers is still available! If you are seeking a good night time herbal with rooibos, then you should too!
