drank Calming by Yogi Tea
538 tasting notes

I was looking for an alternative grocery store tea that I could pick up because the kava wouldn’t go well with my migraine pills I’ve been taking. This one is still not quite what I was looking for (wanted St. John’s Wort) but it’ll work. I picked this over one of their other “calming” teas because I really love cardamom and fennel. I don’t know if I’m really going to taste it once the tea is brewed, but they’re in there!
The bag smells very medicinal to me. Or like some kind of odd forest floor type smell. Brewed I can tell they must have added a sweetener or something as that is the first thing I can smell. Brewed it smells almost just like my friend’s home from childhood. They were Chinese and always had something interesting brewing. This was one of those don’t ask, just drink/eat situations; but it was always something wonderful in the end.
The flavor is..interesting? It tastes like an oriental market to me. I don’t really know how to explain that? Sweet, but also like herbal medicine. Maybe almost minty? This tastes like a grab bag to me. I just hope sipping might calm down the anxiety a bit. We’ll just have to wait and see!
edit I have to comment to say that it might just be the being home and not doing my homework, but I do feel significantly better. No more headache, but my ears are still hurting. So at least the anxiety has gone down a bit. I’ll try it again next time I feel blah and see if I get similar results.

I enjoy Yogi teas, although I haven’t been drinking them that much lately. Most of them contain some Licorice root. which I absolutely love, & which gives it a naturally sweet taste.

Ah! I bet that’s where the sweetness came from in this one. A lot of their teas have stevia too, but this one only had that licorice. I enjoy most of the ones that I’ve had, but I don’t really care for paying for the bags when I can get way more loose tea. I only purchased this one because it was on sale ($4), but the regular price is $6-$6.50 per box.
