Tasters Review:

I have been waiting to try this tisane.  For a few reasons, actually.  One being I really have to be in the mood to drink most herbals.  The 2nd reason being I wanted to NEED to be Simmered Down to get the full effect of this Herbal Tea.

I’ve been a “Nervous Nelly” the last few weeks because of the Holiday Hustle Bustle (I still haven’t even started shopping yet because of the awful weather we have been having) and scrambling with work, home, and crafting problems and projects!  So I figured this week was as good as time as any to give this tea a whirl!

I assumed this would taste REALLY herbally and I wouldn’t like it but I will say I was pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed this cup pretty well.

ALL of the ingredients play nice and are on the mild side!

I would say a little berry and a little herb – but again – the flavors blended well and were gentle!  I LOVE that this tisane did NOT shout!

Tasters Review:

I really thought that since this was a WAKE UP tea that the flavors would be overpowering…but they aren’t. Every ingredient is mellow and pleasant and the hibiscus is barely there but just enough to give it that fruity edge. Without the hibiscus I think this would taste medicine-E. But it DOES assist the berries in this case so maybe they are working well together…like I said everything is so subtle – it jives! This is pretty good!

As for some of the ingredients you may not know much about I thought I would include some clickable links for you in case you are interested:

I love stuff I have to google! For example

AND…I MUST mention other reasons why I like this company…

I love that this company is eco-friendly, focus on health, buy and support local ingredients, and the blender is VERY creative and a nice/gentle soul! 🙂

I’m so excited I was able to try this tea!
