Taster’s Review:

The first thing I notice when I open my packet of Lemomila Tisane from Shanti Tea is the scent of Chamomile.  Peeking inside the package, I can see big chamomile blossoms.  While I’ve never made any big secret that I’m not particularly fond of chamomile, I don’t hate it and I find that the larger the chamomile blossoms, the more I like the tisane.  In other words:  crushed blossoms = not so great, while big, whole blossoms = much better.

And in this tisane, I didn’t see any crushed blossoms at all.  These were big, whole chamomile blossoms mixed with the sweet, citrus-y flavor of lemongrass.

The lemongrass adds a nice brightness to this cup.  The citrus tones are sweet with a tart note that hits the palate towards the end of the sip and lingers on through the aftertaste.  It’s not a strong sour note, though, just a hint of citrus-y tart.  Mostly what the lemongrass provides is a nice contrast to the sweet, apple-like notes of the chamomile.  Notes of honey can also be tasted.

Overall, a very enjoyable way to relax, this Lemomila Tisane from Shanti Tea!
