drank Kava Stress Relief by Yogi Tea
13 tasting notes

While it has been a while since I’ve had this tea, I remember it well. I get anxiety and am basically wound up all the time, mentally and physically. I have learned to deal with it without medication. Kava is one of the only things that helped me other than passionflower extract or a prescription benzo like Xanax or Valium. I must say that I would brew with 3-4 bags for like 7-8 mins and would not take them out of the cup. As for the taste…cinnamony :) one thing that you can do to tell that kava is indeed in this tea is to hold a couple sips in your mouth for like 10-20 seconds. Do this enough an you will get a bit of numbness in your mouth. I can not attest to any problems with the tea as it was never strong enough for me. I’ve taken kava in extract form and it can definitely “slow you down.” Theres a reason it is called Grog, and in some cultures it’s used basically like alcohol. I’ve found all this out online in a short amount of time, so the hysterical reactions of some just make me laugh… If you see a warning, get some information before you drink.

Ah I’m a passionflower extract girl myself. Which reminds me, I need to get more! I’ll have to try this tea sometime too though, thanks for the review!

While I have always liked tea, I have recently fallen off the deep end into loose tea madness :)

I have found that I prefer the darker spectrum of oolong teas like da hong pao, Shui Xian, dark roasted and/or aged TGY, and also Dancong’s. Pretty much anything but floral oolongs, they just arent my style. I also enjoy pretty much every black tea that I have tried! I am also getting more familiar with puer tea, and lately have been preferring shu over sheng…Good for the stomach, and the most likely way to find myself “tea drunk!”
