Featuring a mixture of organic chamomile, sage and passion flower, this blend is designed to soothe upset stomaches and restore one's inner balance. A strange yellowish green dust covers all the ingredients of my sample. I can recognize all the different components of the blend by their shape, rather than by their colour. Some elements are well preserved while others are reduced to dust. The aroma of the blend is rather mild. Again I can detect all three ingredients. The overall effect is something akin to warm, dry grass with a few wildflowers thrown in.

Sacred Rose does not provide any brewing instructions, so I relied on my usual procedures for herbal teas. I brewed a generous teaspoonful in 8 ounces of freshly boiled water for 5 minutes. A faint fennel-like scent wafts from the cup. The crystal clear liquor is a pale yellow. I found this blend to be quite tasty. There is a fair amount of texture to the body, almost verging towards creaminess. I found this quite surprising for a herbal tea. The sage's coniferous astringency is a great complement to the passion flower's sweetness. The chamomile is more of a supporting character than the main attraction here. The three together make a surprisingly delicious blend, flavourful yet subtle, especially for a tisane that has more medicinal aims in mind.

A second 7 minute infusion doesn't fare as well. The flavour profile is mostly dominated by the sage. While not unpleasant on it's own, it's defintely a bit lacklustre in comparison to the previous cup. The lovely creaminess has also disappeared... All in all, I would not bother re-steeping this herbal tea again.

Whether it was psychosomatic or not, I feel this brew did help alleviate a few bad moods. Another thing going for this blend is that it's tasty enough to drink for it's own sake. On the down side, it's a bit pricey, even for an organic blend. One could try to recreate it at home, since all the ingredients are readily available. However the proportions used here are so spot on that I would be tempted to splurge on this one. Well done!
