Thumbs up!"Taste-wise, it was a little bit bathwashy on initial sip, but it settled into something quite soothing. Lemon flowers! Yes...like a garden of lemon flowers. Sure, that hybrid creation seems a bit "sci-fi"-y, but it applies perfectly."

teaetcorganicrelaxationI have a soft spot for herbal infusions. Especially at the end of an extremely troubling day. A cup o' chamomile with something light and lemony takes the edge off. The other option being beer...but I'd rather that not be a regular occurrence. A calming herbal punch to the pressure eases the day in relative coziness. That said, anything with "Relaxation" in its title deserves consideration.

Teas Etc threw everything I liked into this blend; organic lemon balm, organic rose petals, organic valerian root, organic chamomile and organic lemon myrtle. Most of these things I own on my own and use in self-made herbal blends. Well, save for valerian root and lemon balm. I don't know much about valerian root. Friends of mine in college tried to get high on its oil extract form once, and a hippie I talked to said his cat was fond of it. That was the extent of my valerian knowledge.

To the naked eye, it was a beautiful blend. Vibrant rose petals took point in the color scheme. Chamomile and the lemony bits followed up, maintaining a background presence. The blend smelled lovely too, rosy with a bit of a citrus aura and a creamy cap-off (from the chamomile). Liking it wasn't going to be an issue. How much, though, had yet to be determined.

Brewing recommendations were 1 heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup with boiling hot water poured over for a four-to-six-minute steep. This sounded about right, so I didn't deviate from the suggestion. Herbals were quite hearty.

The liquor brewed to what you'd expect from a relaxation-oriented warm drink...off-yellow. C'mon, admit it, they all seem to brew off-yellow. Or orange. That seems to be the default medicinal color. What else to say about the liquor except that anything lemony dominated, which enthralled me greatly. Taste-wise, it was a little bit bathwashy on initial sip, but it settled into something quite soothing. Lemon flowers! Yes...like a garden of lemon flowers. Sure, that hybrid creation seems a bit "sci-fi"-y, but it applies perfectly. This herbal blend does what it sets out to do...relax. I can't say it does much more than that, but I didn't need it to.
