*Grumble, grumble * I hate PMS *Grumble, grumble *

I don’t expect this to be a magical cure or anything, but one of its main ingredients is raspberry leaf which I’ve drunk before on its own for hormonal issues and found it helped somewhat. I was a bit leery of the ‘vitex’ or chasteberry which, despite being touted as a cure-all, can also have some unpleasant side-effects – usually only in high, continuous does however, so I figure I’m pretty safe.

The dry tea smells like cinnamon while it changes to a fruitier, more herbal scent as it steeps. The cinnamon is still there in the flavour though it’s fairly mild. In general the tea tastes sweetly herbal with slight hints of sweet lemon and berry. Unlike many of these ‘functional’ teas this one doesn’t taste nasty, which I can appreciate.

I keep searching for medicinal teas that taste like tea and not like medicine; this one sounds like it might mildly fit that description.

Okay, so does it actually help with the PMS? Cause I’m really needing something that can calm those symptoms down.

Vitex is my hero. It’s the only thing that makes that TOM not make me want to die, among other things. Never had it in tea-form though!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
