Unwind and Relax / Great Tea Road Co.

This is my first herbal tisane post for SororiTea Sisters. . .  or at least the first in a very long time.

As a purist I just tend to not drink much herbal but I do love Evening in Missoula and I was curious as to the taste of this one compared with that.

Let me tell you it is different. This one has a bit of a kick with the cinnamon. Personally I don’t find it very relaxing but then I may be biased with my love of the aforementioned tisane.

If you are a fan of cinnamon with hints of chamomile this could be a good fit for you.

Sunset from Salt Sisters Online.. . . .

Sunset is a herbal tisane from Salt Sisters Online. My family located it at a little shop in Bemus Point, New York, where they sold some of the Salt Sisters products. I have to say I have only ever tried two teas/tisanes from this company and I enjoy both of them. With SUNSET – I’m sure it had something to do with the LOVELY MINTINESS!

The herbal blend is made up of Balm, Peppermint, Blackberry, Lemongrass, Chamomile, and a variety of flowers.

It’s a fantastic calming offering that is for sure. They said to sip the tea that calms the mind and lets the day drift away. I think this is perfect for evenings and can be enjoyed both hot and cold.

I can’t wait to try more of the Salt Sisters offerings. I hope when I go back to the little shop in Bemus Point that I can find them there still.

Taster’s Review:

Chamomile is one of those ingredients that people either love or hate.  I am in the pool of tea drinkers that love it.  I drink it all hours of the day, not just night time.  Chamomile blends iced are delicious and I love drinking it after a larger lunch, like today. I ate just a bit too much so I reached for this tea, hoping it might help.

I brewed this up with boiling water and steeped it for 5 minutes. Then I allowed this to cool off so I could add ice for an iced tea treat.

How did it taste? This was quite good.  This definitely isn’t an ordinary chamomile tea blend.  I love the additions of the lemongrass and the coconut.  The flavors give this blend a unique flavor.  What I really take away from this tea is the creamy silk like texture that I’m getting.  Very good.  I don’t really pick up the stevia and the chicory gives the tea a hint of a roasted profile.  The licorice adds in a hint of sweeetness.  This is a keeper!
