Advantages: no caffeine
Disadvantages: heavy on the cinnamon
I suffer badly from insomnia and a friend gave me a box of 'Heath and Heather,' Cinnamon, Honey and Vanilla tea bags to try.
The idea was that if I drank this after teatime instead of conventional tea I might sleep better. Vanilla and honey are said to aid restful sleep and relax the body, so I gave it a try.
What is in these tea bags?
The ingredients are 100% natural and they come in teabags complete with tags to make it easy to use them. The ingredients are:
natural flavourings, (these aren't specified),
How to make this tea:
You can place one teabag in a cup of boiling water and leave to infuse for three minutes. You do need the full three minutes to get the full flavour.
If you want to make this in a pot use one teabag per person and leave for the same amount of time.
Serve with a spoonful of honey to taste if you wish.
How does it taste? Smell?
This nothing like conventional tea. The aroma is of cinnamon is quite strong but you can still smell the tang of the blackberry leaves and a hint of vanilla.
The cinnamon is, in my opinion, the strongest part of the taste. There is however a deffinate fruity flavour too. There is perhaps a little too much of the cinnamon taste for my pallette.
This tea is pleasant and refreshing and it doesn't contain any caffeine. I did sleep better after drinking it, but whether this was because of the lack of my usual caffeine quota, or the relaxing properties of the tea, I'm not sure.
I enjoyed these teabags but I do think that they are a little heavy on the ciannamon smell and taste. I would have preferred more van
illa and less cinnamon. This, of course, very much depends on individual pallettes. You might prefer it just the way it is.
