I love the name of this tea. If you’ve read many of my posts, you probably are aware that I’m not only a tea enthusiast, but I also love art. My favorite work of art of all time is Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. In fact, the tea mug from which I am sipping this tisane at this very moment is a “Starry Night” mug with a print of the painting on it.
However, I wasn’t so sure that I’d love the tisane. It is a chamomile blend, and chamomile is one of those ingredients that doesn’t exactly excite me when it comes to tisanes.
But, I must say that this tisane is actually quite tasty. The combination of ingredients just seems to work. (Check out the list of ingredients above, this tisane has quite a bit going on!) The fruit-like tones of the chamomile melds together with the lemongrass and the hints of fruit flavor in the fruit leaves to give it a hint of fruity essence without coming across as too fruity or sweet.
It has a herbaceous overtone, but again, it isn’t too overwhelming nor does it end up tasting medicinal. It tastes soothing and serene … in fact, this tisane makes me feel very much the way the painting makes me feel: calm.
