Ok, the guy that used to do Double Dare hosts a show on the Food Channel called Unwrapped. They did a segment on Celestial Seasonings. That inspired me to try this one. Some reviewed this as medicinal smelling. I did not get that. It smells mainly of spearmint. You may recall I hate spearmint tea. That said, it works in this one. The mint is not overdone and is followed by and surrounded by lemongrass. I can’t believe they go together but I like it. I added splenda and I cannot single out the appley chamomile or the lightly bitter valerian.

It did not knock me out. I could feel it. It did relax my brain so I feel asleep easily and awoke 8 hours later feeling refreshed. I like the taste of Two Leaves Better Rest more but Sleepytime Extra is half the price and available at Wally World. Looks like this may take up residence in my stash.

Yep, the king of Gak his own self.

Mark Somers (SP?) produces a ton of shows on Food Network and I believe Cooking Channels as well.

Mark Somers, I know the show. Also like Elton on “good eats”.

As to the tea … may have to give it a whirl, although I need a sleep-assist ingredient with the heft and effect of a well-wielded 2 × 4 on the back of my head. (I have a very relax-resistant brain.)

Marc S. name shows up a lot in production credits on FN. Since I have been forced into retirement I have been watching a lot of FN so I have just discovered Good Eats. It’s like Bill Nie made a cooking show with Pee Wee Herman on the writing staff. Well maybe not, anyway great show.

Gmathis – I know the feeling. It’s 6:00 AM and I am typing on the computer. Should have had a cup or three last night.
