joshuatreeanxietyfree.jpgAfter having made several trips to the Environmentally Minded website in the past, tonight I was unable to access it because my trusty antivirus detected some type of Trojan virus when I visited. May I digress for a moment and just say that Kaspersky probably has the best antivirus system on the market--nothing has gotten past it in over 3 years and I spend a lot of time on-line. Anyhow, I was luckily able to google the blend and came up with its list of ingredients: Skullcap, Eleuthero, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Rose Petals, Red Clover Blossoms, Chamomile, Hibiscus, Nettles, Wild Oat Tops, Alfalfa, and a special blend of natural plant extracts for flavor. Joshua Tree herbal blends tend to contain some more unusual herbs in them and I would caution folks to do some research before consuming them and to consider enjoying them in moderation.

Of the four Joshua Tree herbals that I received to sample, this one is definitely the most visually attractive. It smells VERY floral and looks almost like grass clippings with some wild flowers mixed in. I used a tablespoon of this to make an 8 oz cup and gave it a nice long steep time of 7 min. While the dry blend smelled very floral, the wet was somewhat less so. This is a somewhat unusual tasting blend. It took me several tastes to even begin to find the words to describe it. Oddly, the peppermint doesn't stand out that much in this blend. You sense its there, but you don't taste much of it. I do pick up on a bit of the lemon balm, but it is not terribly pronounced either. After sipping this for just a minute or two, it occurred to me that my entire mouth tasted like flowers! In fact, the floral component in this is SUPER strong. So strong, that about halfway through the cup I was starting to wonder if I was going to need an antihistamine and feared it might bring on a bout of hay fever. I have occasionally heard folks that are sensitive to flowers say that they avoid them in tea blends---this would definitely be a blend to avoided by those folks. One other thing to note about this blend, is that about half-way through my cup, the floral taste in my mouth was so strong that it began to taste kinda soapy to me.

This blend is unlike any other that I've tasted previously. This is drinking flowers---if you will. I don't totally hate it, but I know that I wouldn't buy this either. I am not much of a floral tea fan to begin with and this definitely the most floral thing I have ever tasted. I would recommend this to those that love extremely floral blends, but under the caution that you might wanna have some Benadryl handy. Ok, I officially just burped flowers--probably TMI, but interesting nonetheless.
