Taster’s Review:

When I first received this tea, I was a little worried that it would end up tasting very medicinal.  But it is actually quite tasty!

Yes, it does taste herb-y with a gently spiced flavor, it doesn’t come across as really medicinal to me.  It has a pleasant flavor.  The chamomile is a delicate, and the star anise (and to a lesser extent, the fennel) offers it an agreeable licorice-y kind of taste that lingers in the aftertaste.  I’m enjoying this.

This is an herbal tea that keeps its promise!  I am not going to say that it’s my favorite tisane, because it isn’t.  But, what I will say is that I would much rather drink this tisane than take some over-the-counter remedy to relieve my discomfort after eating a meal that maybe I shouldn’t have indulged in (we all do that, don’t we?)  It does what it is supposed to do, and that makes it alright in my book!

Taster’s Review:

OK, I admit it.  Herbal blends scare me.  Just a little bit.  They do!

That’s because even with the finest ingredients, herbal tisanes can go wrong.  They can taste medicine-y.  Or they can just have some funky off-putting taste.  So, needless to say, I was scared to try this blend from Byron Bay Tea Company.

But, this tastes really terrific!  If this is a skin regime, count me in!  I would be happy to drink this on a daily basis.

This doesn’t taste medicine-y or otherwise off-putting.  The peppermint is strong, but not overpowering… and interestingly enough, this tisane doesn’t come off as “minty” exactly, although it does have a crisp and clean mint aftertaste.

I am also enjoying the way the ginger and lemongrass work together in this blend.  The ginger offers just a hint of peppery flavor, while the sweet citrus-y tones of the lemongrass cancel out some of the spicier notes of the ginger. There is also a nice peppery accent in the finish that I find rather enjoyable.

But, I think my favorite part of this blend is the very subtle taste of rose.  It is a nice touch.  It is so soft and sweet.  Very nice, indeed.

None of the flavors here are overwhelming… instead, they are very harmonious with one another.  It has a pleasant, well-rounded taste.  It is a very soothing, relaxing cup – especially nice at the end of the day!

Taster’s Review:

I received this tea from a friend a couple of months ago, but I held on to it until I felt like I could use a cup of Digestive Helper.  Well, tonight is that night.  We just returned home from a nice restaurant and I indulged in some delicious yet very rich food.  Digestive Helper to the rescue!

Whenever I encounter these types of “functional” herb blends, I am always just a little bit (or sometimes a lot) leery, because I fear that the blend will not taste very good.  Fortunately, this is a functional tea that not only helps with digestive distress but is also tasty.

This tisane has a very smooth, mild flavor, and it doesn’t taste definitively like any one particular herb, but more like a melangé of many herbs… which is what this is.  The peppermint is the most prominent flavor, but again, this isn’t a distinctive peppermint taste, but more like a minty background note that has melded with other flavors.  There is also a citrus-y note to it.

The overall flavor is quite pleasant and it has a very soothing effect.  My stomach feels a bit calmer now after having consumed a cup of it, and I’m very appreciative of that.

This is a good herbal tisane to have on hand – because you never know when you might need it!
