I followed the instructions listed on the package, steeping the teabag for 10 minutes in freshly boiled water. I then pressed on it and left it in my cup, as suggested. The results are pretty murky in looks and taste. The cup has a cloudy greenish-yellow hue to it, with the aroma of fresh wood chips. The flavour profile is very woody and vaguely gingery in a medicinal sort of way. The tisane does improve as it cools, becoming progressively sweeter, the finish eventually reminding me of fennel and licorice. The blooms in the blend are completely overtaken by the strongly musty wood flavours. Overall the results are drinkable but I wouldn't go so far as to say I enjoyed the experience.
I expected a fairly floral tasting tisane, based on the ingredient list. Instead the brew is predominantly earthy and woody. It's not something I would drink for pleasure, that's for sure! In terms of it's medicinal properties, it seemed to help me feel more relaxed after a stressful weekend. However, I don't usually have trouble falling asleep, so I'm not the best judge of this herbal tea's potential. All in all, if you really have trouble falling asleep, maybe the unusual ingredients used here will help, otherwise look elsewhere for a pleasant tasting nightcap.
