Hey there Teacups! I’m back today with another Let’s Talk Tea post and this time around I’m going to be reviewing LibberTea’s – Peaceful Moments Tisane. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now you’ll know that I suffer quite badly with migraines (migraine posts are coming back soon) and as a result I am always under a lot of stress physically and mentally, so this blend couldn’t have arrived at a better time. I really hoped when going into tasting this that this blend would help me relax and have a least a few peaceful stress & pain free hours in my day.Here’s what LibberTea have to say about this blend over on their website: ”We would often like to grab a special moment just for ourselves to forget the noise and stresses in our day. As a real alternative LibberTea would like to offer you this harmoniously balanced tender fruity herbal tea with a hint of tanginess that will relax and pleasure your mind, body and soul.”
Ingredients: Wild Strawberry Leaves, Apple Pieces, Orange Peel, Mallow Blossoms, Sunflower Blossoms, Elderberries, Bilberries and Hibiscus Blossoms.
Tea Tasting Notes
During this tasting session I used all of the sample I was sent which never normally happens but I after my first cup I couldn’t decide if I liked it so during the rest of the day I had two more cups. By the third I had decided that I liked and it was palatable but it wasn’t anything special. It’s a very middle ground tisane and doesn’t trigger much of a reaction from me at all.
Don’t get me wrong it’s nice but it’s very similar to a lot of other tisanes I’ve tried and because of that it was just a little one note for me and very light. Yes, I liked the taste of it and it was very relaxing to drink but its nothing new, and with how many teas and tisanes I try it takes a lot to suprise me and introduce me to something unique. I can see what LibberTea have tried to do with this blend but for it it just misses the mark a little bit.This blend as a very light flavour profile overall but it’s stand out notes are its fruitiness and its natural sweetness, it also has a slightly herbal undertone and a somewhat dry hay like aftertaste. I don’t know something is just missing for me. I really wanted this blend to blow my expectations out of the water and help me relax fully on days when I’m in pain but it didn’t. LibberTea have some amazing blends and having tried quite a few of them and loving them my expectations were really high and this particular blend just didn’t meet them. I even tried icing it to see if I could make the flavours come out a little more but something included in the blend didn’t take very well to being cold brewed at all and there was quite a bitter note to it when cold.
If you prefer tisanes with light fruity notes I and subtle natural sweetness I would recommend giving this blend a try. Just make sure you try it hot and you steep it for a while to give the subtle flavour profile a chance to become as strong as possible. Remember what I always say just because this wasn’t really my cup of tea doesn’t mean that it won’t be yours so do let just my opinions stop you from giving this a try.
Overall Teacup Rating: 2.5/5
