On my daily walks, the primroses and daffodils have been and gone. We’re now into that stage of spring when the daisies and bluebells pop up. It’s wonderful and this is the perfect tea to match the mood.
Bion Spring tea is an herbal infusion of three different flowers. It’s totally caffeine-free and you’ll be happy to hear that the tea sachets are plastic-free. They’re actually biodegradable.
In my full review below, I’ll cover what is in this tea, how best to brew it, the health benefits you may get from it, and where to buy it.
Bion Spring Infusion at a Glance
- Blend: Whole chamomile flowers, lavender buds, and rose petals
- Flavour: Chamomile sweetness and rose perfume
This is a really calming herbal blend that’s great for spring and summer. The lavender is the weakest flavour, with chamomile and rose dominating the blend.

You can see through the pyramid sachet that this tea is absolutely stunning! The whole chamomile flower heads, delicate lavender buds, and soft pink rose petals are an incredibly inviting sight for sore eyes. The aroma is dominated by the chamomile – sweet hay notes – but there’s also a hint of fresh lavender that almost seems sharp against the cloying sweetness of the chamomile.
It brews into a chamomile yellow tea colour with a tinge of green to it. Steam that swirls from the cup has a chamomile scent but with deeper, more complex floral notes.
When you take a sip, it’s like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. The chamomile instantly creates a relaxing sensation, but unlike sleepy teas, this blend has more freshness about it. Rose perfume and a hint of lavender really pick it up.
I loved that the texture was quite thick too. It’s smooth and hydrating in your mouth. I think this tea would go really nicely with spearmint as well.
How to Brew Bion Springtime Tea
Use on tea sachet per cup. Pour over boiling water and let the flowers brew for 5 minutes. This tea doesn’t get too strong or overpowering, so it favours longer brew times.
As for when to drink this tea, it’s really nice to have in the evenings before bed. But it’s still quite refreshing thanks to the rose and lavender, so it could be a nice caffeine-free afternoon tea too.
I don’t have a food pairing for this tea. The key is to sip it slowly and relax while you do it. Sitting outside to sip this tea is a good idea – leave your phone behind.
Why Bion Organic Herb Company?
I really love this company – they grow all their tea ingredients organically in Cyprus and their packaging is biodegradable. As you can see from my tea photography, the flower pieces are large and colourful. They don’t appear bruised or crushed in the slightest.
This speaks volumes for the care that Bion take when growing and packaging their herbal infusions. If you get the chance to brew Bion Spring tea, take it!
Health Benefits of Floral Tea
This floral tea has some really relaxing ingredients. It’s best for reducing anxiety, erasing stress, and easing insomnia too. The rose petals are full of antioxidants that can have a range of benefits for your body.
Chamomile, as many people know, has a relaxing and sedative-like effect. It’s gentle and calming. Furthermore, lavender is a popular aromatherapy scent and has links to reducing anxiety as well according to Medical News Today.
This is a really lovely tea but not all that easy to get your hands on. Sometimes you can find Bion Spring tea on Amazon, but other times it seems to disappear off the face of the Earth. You can learn more about it on Bion’s official website (link below) and if you’re really keen to try this tea then I recommend you message them via Instagram.
