I wanted to get another post out a bit earlier, but I soon realized that I couldn’t because of what was in store for Day 11.
Organic Mother’s Little Helper!
Ingredients: Organic: peppermint, lemongrass, hibiscus**, rosehips, chamomile, valerian root, cornflowers, peppermint flavouring*.
On their website, they note that valerian root is “Nature’s valium,” which means that this tea is going to relax you until you’re roughly a puddle of goo. This human-to-goo transformation isn’t good during the day when you still need to get work done, so I saved it for after dinner.
It turns a lovely cedar colour when it’s steeped that’s really quite welcoming. It smells like mint, hibiscus and rosehips, so it really draws you into your mug.
The mint flavour comes out right away and lingers on the back of your throat, much like a mint candy or a losenge. It’s a little tart from the hibiscus and lemongrass, and there’s only a slight earthiness from the flowers.
Does it work as a mild sedative at the end of the day? Ohhhhhh, YEAH. I may be falling asleep soon…
