As the packet opens, a musty grassy hay type smells drops over you, combined with the beautiful visual of this tisane, it’s like walking through the silence of a serene meadow. When steeped, It's Me Time has a slight mentholated scent that drifts through the sinuses and adds a coolness to the blend, as if brief spell of rain has washed a freshness into the air. Breathe deep and relax.
The flavour nicely parallels the aroma with this tisane. Its Me Time continues to take you on a relaxing journey through wild flower filled fields and horse grazed country side, all from the comfort of your own chair. With its floral, light hay taste and minty finish, a mild sweet savoury composition is created.
The ingredients in It’s Me Time do offer a little natural sweetness, but if you prefer something a little sweeter try adding some fresh squeezed lemon or, sticking with the organic vibe of TeaSane, a drop of natural set organic honey.

With the majority of ingredients being relaxants and a name like It’s Me Time it’s easy to see that this blend is curated to aid relaxation. Personally, I’m not a massive fan of the flavours that are found in common relaxation blends. However, as a massive fan of mint, I ended up enjoying It’s Me Time. This could so easily have been just another relaxation blend, but the addition of mint made it feel unique, invigorating and relaxing all at once.
