serenity.jpgBackground:
The tea is an herbal blend containing chamomile, peppermint, lemongrass, rooibos, and vanilla. The smell of the tea is very interesting and unique. For me it is the kind of interesting that makes me want to smell it again and definitely taste it. The smell has good balance with the vanilla being a team player. I have found vanilla in many teas to be overpowering and in all honesty not the best front line player in terms of a tea's taste. But in this tea there is a wonderful balance between ingredients that have a strong personality such as the rooibos, peppermint, and vanilla. They all work well together. Once brewed the vanilla is nicely noticeable but again not overbearing.

Taste/Impressions:
Now to the taste. The taste opens with the chamomile and lemongrass. I don't really taste the rooibos. The peppermint flavor comes through in middle of the taste. The peppermint doesn't last long and then the vanilla is the finishing touch. The aftertaste definitely has a taste of vanilla. Also, between sips the vanilla lingers, though it is not overbearing.
Overall the tea actually has a fairly light quality given the list of ingredients. This tea could easily be very strong and overpowering but it is not. With a name like Serenity, a strong and overpowering tea would not fit. There is a good fit between the name and the tea.

Conclusion:
A well-balanced blend of strong and unique ingredients into a tea that is greater than the sum of its parts. Nice tasting and enjoyable. I may have other herbal teas that are more favored though it is a matter of personal preference and not the wonderful quality and taste of this tea. I will definitely keep this around as an alternate evening and night tea for those quiet times.

    This is actually one of my favorite teas, not just by Tavalon either! I’d give it at least a 9 – it always helps me unwind at the end of a long day at work!
