As you guys know, I’m a huge tea fan, and I love Wise Owl’s range of organic herbal teas made by a company right here in London. This week they sent me three more samples that I’m really excited to share with you.
(For the record, this is not a sponsored post, and all opinions are my own)
Tahitian Night Night
I am now OBSESSED with this tea. It contains calming ingredients lavender, lime flower, valerian root, camomile and liquorice root. I do love bedtime teas, and this blend is really soothing. More so than loads of others I’ve tried. My boyfriend tasted and said it was like taking a “hot relaxing bath”, which I think it a great description. The scent is really nice, it’s not overly floral, but it is slightly earthy or verdant.
It makes me feel really relaxed if I drink it before bed, and when I drink it, I sleep quite deeply, which surprised me. I didn’t think it would have an obvious effect. But it certainly does for me, which is great because I struggle to fall asleep sometimes.
Just a note, I hate liquorice, so I was cautious about this one, but you can’t really taste it as a distinct flavour unless you really overbrew it. So if you’re not a liquorice fan, don’t write this one off.
Bali Bamboo Leaf
If you’re kind of a health and beauty girl like me, this could be the tea for you. Reminiscent of the beautiful island where it comes from, the taste is mild and relaxed, it tastes a bit like green tea, but a bit yummier. Made from Balinese bamboo leaves and nettle, it’s packed with antioxidants which are great for your skin and your inner health, and silica which promotes hair and nail growth. It’s not super fragrant, being essentially a leaf tea, and it does taste more traditional than you’d think. Personally I think it’s a bit nicer than green tea, of which I am sometimes not a fan.
This one is so beautiful and fresh! A real happy zing of a tea! I guess lemongrass tastes a bit like it sounds: it’s got that earthy green flavour and a citrus fragrance and taste. But this one has a little bit of sage as well, which gives it a little rich, musky flavour in the after taste too. I like this one in the morning or when I need a little pick me up, because it’s quite refreshing and uplifting, but never overpowering. Quite delicious.
