When I brewed this, I was looking to relax a little bit. Maybe not destress so much as just something to find a sense of inner calm and I have to admit that this tea did that. It’s a functional tea that does what it claims.
The cumin is strong in this but it isn’t overwhelming. It has a sort of curry-ish type of flavor, with notes of green tea and citrus. I taste the ginger and licorice but I don’t get a lot of lavender flavor.
Overall, a pleasant tea. Most functional teas I find to be quite medicinal, but I like that this is a little more like a savory broth rather than a medicine. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/04/22/ayurvedic-de-stress-tea-from-tea-of-life/
