Vanessa’s Teaview Snapshot
Its OK"By appearance, the dry blend seems to have decent representation of each herb, but when the tea is brewed, the chamomile dominates, lending its characteristic honey-apple flavor and scent to the tea."

serenity.jpgSerenity is the third Tavalon tea that I have sampled, and as with the first two, I am impressed with the crisp and fresh flavors of their teas. Serenity is a calming, caffeine-free herbal blend consisting of chamomile, peppermint, lemongrass, rooibos, and vanilla. By appearance, the dry blend seems to have decent representation of each herb, but when the tea is brewed, the chamomile dominates, lending its characteristic honey-apple flavor and scent to the tea. The mint and lemongrass flavors were only weakly noticeable, which I found very peculiar since these herbs typically have pretty strong and obvious flavors. Sadly, the rooibos and vanilla eluded my taste buds completely. In all, I would have much preferred a better balance of all of the ingredients so that each ingredient in the brew was able to be tasted, at least even a little bit. The chamomile here was so potent that it just overpowered the brew. Had I done a blind taste-testing of this tea, I probably would have concluded that this was a chamomile tea. Despite my disappointment in not being able to taste all of the ingredients, I still ranked this tea a decent 6.5 because the flavor of this tea, even though 99.5% chamomile, is clean, crisp and refreshing. I wouldn't necessarily re-order this one myself though, because I have had other similar blends that better balance the various ingredients to provide a multi-flavor herbal tea.
