Thumbs up!"When it comes to relaxation and bedtime, most know of Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time, your typical low grade version with tiny particles of crushed up herbs. Lu Lin takes sleepy time to a new level and provides whole chrysanthemum flowers, whole chamomile flowers, and a unique touch of lemongrass."

lulincozychamchrysLu Lin is based out of North Yorkshire, UK they are committed to providing Chinese teas and making them accessible to all. "We manage the whole process right the way through from sourcing and quality checking to packing, and then shipping directly from China to the U.K. in small batches to ensure high quality control." Their name Lu Lin, actually means Green Forest a name linking them with their previous company La Place Verte (the Green Place) and displaying health and nature in tea. For those new to Chinese tea they feature an Exploration Box featuring single estates from different regions.

When it comes to relaxation and bedtime, most know of Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time, your typical low grade version with tiny particles of crushed up herbs. Lu Lin takes sleepy time to a new level and provides whole chrysanthemum flowers, whole chamomile flowers, and a unique touch of lemongrass. Chrysanthemum is commonly used in Chinese medicine and contains B carotene which is converted into Vitamin A in the liver. It also contains B Vitamins as well as magnesium, Vitamin C, and calcium. Chrysanthemum is also known as a "cooling herb" which means it slows down processes and soothes irritation. It stimulates the senses, yet calms the nerves.

Chamomile is well known as a sleep aid, it also has immune boosting properties and soothes the stomach. Lemongrass is typically known for use in Asian cuisine but it also aids digestion as well as contains many vitamins. Together these three herbs provide a nice sleep and digestion aid before bedtime. I used 1 tablespoon of the herb mixture for 6 ounces of water and brewed for 2 minutes at 200 F. The chamomile is the dominate taste as well as chrysanthemum which is very light, the lemon grass is very light and provides a slight lemon taste to the cup. Over all this is an enjoyable cup that provides just the right balance of herbs. As far as it's relaxing properties I'd say it did a good job preparing me for bedtime. It is to be noted that the herbs provided are not organic, which may or may not sway your decision in choosing this tea.
