Taster’s Review:

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.
