The ingredients say chamomile, star anise, and lemon balm, but upon drinking it, it seems like there is also peppermint in it. Peppermint has a distinctive aroma, and is a logical choice for inclusion in an herbal blend to settle the stomach, but the fact that it's not listed is a little strange to me.

I don't noti...

This blend contains three herbs that I like a fair amount, but would not blend in this particular combination for taste alone. The aroma is muddled and somewhat heavy. The chamomile dominates, and the anise is noticeable too...the mint takes a background.

The flavor is both sweet and bitter.

This is an interest...

This is the first commercially-available herbal blend I've tried which prominently includes lemon balm. I love lemon balm: it dries well, and it is delicious and has a number of beneficial health properties. I think lemon balm is an under-utilized herb in commercial blends.

However, I was disappointed by this tea....
