Butterfly Tea from Design a Tea

Tea Information:

Leaf Type:  Herbal & Rooibos

Where to Buy:  Design a Tea

Company Description:

A great bed time or “relaxing time” blend of herbal tea. Filled with the benefits of Chamomile and Lavender as well as that great tea Rooibos. Which we added for its antioxidant spin, not to mention the added red color it adds to the brew. Enjoy – but be prepared to be VERY relaxed and have a strong desire to cuddle after drinking it. 🙂

Taster’s Review:

This is a very nice, relaxing blend that is perfect to enjoy later in the evening – when you want something warm and comforting to drink but don’t want something with caffeine that might over-stimulate.

The combination of lavender and chamomile is fast becoming a favorite of mine.  I like how these two really complement each other.  The sweet, somewhat fruity flavor of the chamomile softens the sometimes perfume-y lavender and brings out the lavender’s gentler side.  The result is a sweet, lightly floral, subtle fruit-like taste – I can taste a hint of juicy cherry as well as the natural apple-like flavor from the chamomile – that encourages a sense of tranquility.

I was a bit hesitant with how the rooibos would behave in this blend.  Would its sometimes funky sweet flavor overwhelm the natural sweet taste from the lavender and chamomile?  Would the woodsy tone of the rooibos interfere with the lovely, peaceful flavor of the chamomile/lavender combination?

Well, there was no need for hesitation, because the rooibos seems to be a natural companion to these two flowers.  The woodsy note of the rooibos is there, but, it doesn’t interfere, instead, what it does is add a pleasing depth of flavor to the cup.

This is a blend that is sweet, but not too sweet.   Comforting and cozy.  Delightful!
