Backlogging – shared a pot of this with the boy last night. Put me right to sleep, as it always does. Him, not so much. But he was amused by the dragon on the box, and said it tastes pretty good.

Welp! The Corporate Bullies have done it again! I’m stressed. I thought I had another/different brand with stress relieving qualities somewhere but I can’t find it. So…I am stuck with this. I still can’t bring myself to say I like this tea but at least I am not dumping it down the drain either. I tried understeeping today with the same result.
This tea is just amazing at mellowing you out. I don’t care if it’s just in my mind or the tea doing the work, but it really does just chill you out. As other have said, the flavors can compete with eachothers but the mint and the lemon flavors really work out swell together. Personally I do not mind the “competing” flavors, however this surely does not appeal to some drinkers.
I also own this tea. I wasnt sure whether or not I liked it at first. It does have a strong hint of either ginger or whatever it is. However…when i have one of those days, that is the tea i turn to. I bought it so i certainly am gonna drink it:) I also add agave to it. Actually if i ever add anything to my teas its either honey or agave. I try not to use sugar. I recommend agave. Its sweeter than sugar so u dont need a lot! Anyways…ill keep the tea. It could be psychological but i actually think it calms me down on a crazy day! :)
I broke out in hives last week – something that I believe is triggered by stress. Tea in general has a very relaxing affect on me, so I can’t say one way or another if this tea does this moreso than others. However, 3 days later, and 3 cups later, the hives are fading. I can say that the taste in general is quite pleasing. The anise is subtle, overpowered by the cinnamon to balance out the flavor. There is something about the aftertaste of anise that I don’t like and that subtracts points for me – but the smell of this tea is totally amazing. It’s awesome for that late night tea, naturally caffeine free. I’ll be keeping this one around, but can only drink it sparingly due to the anise aftertaste.
