There is nothing more British than a review of tea, amirite? Actually, there is…a review of tea which complains about it.
I really wanted Clipper’s Snore and Peace to change my life, after reading about it on Terri‘s blog, so I bought some to try out.
I wanted to sip on it from a china mug (cups are way too small for a tea addict) with my little finger pointing out, like a real Brit. I wanted to sigh relief at an easier night’s sleep and brag about how well rested I was to anyone who would listen. I was disappointed.
Y’see, there’s really nothing I enjoyed about this tea. It smelt, and tasted a bit odd (although you get used to it), but the biggest crime for me was that it didn’t help me relax or sleep at all. In fact, I tried it for a few nights in a row and a couple of nights I ended up feeling more awake after drinking it. Perhaps that’s psychological though?
Anyway, given Terri’s glowing review of the brew (I’m a poet), I guess it has a different effect on different people. I don’t necessarily struggle that much with getting to sleep, it’s staying asleep and feeling like I’ve truly had my 8-10 hours I require to operate the next day, and unfortunately this tea did nowt to help improve things.
Despite my displeasure, I am reluctant to completely give up on this tea. I will probably try it again, and cross my fingers as I slurp that it performs the magic it promises. What can I say? I have faith. Or perhaps, I just don’t want the teabags to go to waste.
Have you tried this tea? Or do you have any other sleepy teas to recommend?
