I wanted to try this tea to help with stress (and because I was really curious about catnip in tea). It’s an okay herbal. I prefer it with honey. It’s relaxing, but (sadly) it doesn’t help me sleep.

I must be perfectly honest and say that I mainly bought this for the box art, but the tea itself didn’t disappoint. It’s caffeine-free and pretty neutral health-wise, so I can drink it as much as I want at any time of the day, which is nice.
The taste is a hard one to describe. I guess the primary flavours are licorice, lemon, mint, and catnip, but the other ingredients definitely all add a little something to it. I haven’t noticed any calming properties, but I love it enough that I don’t really care.
That being said, this tea isn’t for everyone. Though I think it’s delicious, I’ve had friends try it and say it’s terrible. Oh, and be careful not to oversteep it, since the licorice taste can become overpowering.
