One of my fave go-to relaxing teas. I’ve had the bagged version multiple times, but just decided to treat myself to the loose tea variety. I’m in heaven! I always let this steep for the length of the cup, which brings out that licorice sweetness. I did the same thing with the loose leaf variety, which leads to a much stronger and spicier cuppa.

My only issue with the bagged variety is how expensive it is – $17 for a box! But it’s extra indulgent and helps headaches/migraines. Hey, I should be able to write this off as a health expense or at least get HSA reimbursement! ;)

If anyone ever wants to order this, we could split the order to save on shipping. This is one I’ve got to have on hand for the daily migraines, and when I need a little bit of spa. :)

There are many recipes online to make your own version of this. So much less expensive.

I’ve tried multiple times – even my Fresh Start blend – but nothing comes close to the medley of flavors this one has. Have you had any luck?

SimplyJenW

I did change mine up a little. Licorice Root, Spearmint, Holy Basil (some recipes use actual basil) and crushed fennel seed. Look for Jen’s Comfort Tea.

Thanks! I’ll give it a go. :)

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
