Well I purchased this tea to help me Relax…just like it claims. I have a gerneral anxiety dosorder that keeps me up sometimes. Lately lot’s of things going on. New baby, 3 weeks later husband had to check in to a treatment center for illness for 2 months, then 2 weeks after that my father passed suddenly. Just a lot on the plate. So anxiety went up up up and I was looking for something to take it down a tad. Hence the purchase of the tea.
Well, It smells floral that’s for sure. As I read somewhere else, it’s a bit potpouri which I’m not crazy about.
After a steeping and a little time to cool …. it pretty much tastes like hot potpouri for me. I think I steeped it too long because it was almost overwhelming. So I tried it another day steeping it at the minimum time required by the instructions on the tin….a lot better. It’s nice….not my favorite. I am picky about my floral teas…and this one was just a bit too perfume for my taste. And then after reading the lovely disclaimer on Steepster, I think I’ll retire it. I never really felt any real relaxing effect from it. And apparently I could be damaging my liver?? So I think I’ll shelve this one. I have had much more luck relaxing with the Get Some Zzz’s blend.

I’m a cookie and dessert blogger from Texas….but I’ve been transplanted to Joplin MO…so here I am. I love tea…always have…but since my husband and I cut out our nightly glass of wine the tea obsession has begun. Now I can’t get enough tea! I’m so glad I found this community. I learn a lot and it’s really fun.
