Another old school one for me. (and yes it was the box art that conned me into this one).
But it is a good tea, and as I recall quite lemoney to me.
And despite this being something that tastes of highschool nostalgia to me, I am
actually pining for a cup at the moment….b/c if I thought that time frame of my life
was tension-filled. Well, lets just say it needs mega taming now.

I recently discovered this tea and it’s one of my favorites at the moment. Definitely has a unique combination of flavors, but it’s soothing and I’m a big fan.

Tension Tamer is a favorite for my mother and me, and in my opinion, it is one of the best herb teas available from Celestial Seasonings. While bagged teas are never quite as good as the full leaf alternative, they are more widely available.

I have experimented quite a bit with this tea. It is good as a hot tea, as well as iced. I have also brewed iced tea mixing this with the Republic of Tea’s Mint Fields Herb Tea. It makes an excellent summer tea: light and refreshing!

Ginger is overpowering in this tea, at least I think it is ginger… so ginger haters beware! I didn’t notice it provide any help to cope with stress, it’s just isn’t potent enough for that.

This is a great herbal tea, and I really like it, although I admit that it does taste somewhat “medicinal”. I do like how the minty taste dances in my mouth for several seconds after each swallow, but ultimately fades to a more subdued flavor. The inclusion of B-vitamins is an added bonus!

This tastes herby and it has a peppery bite to it, and then the aftertaste tastes like those Lemonhead candies.

Functional more than pleasurable to drink, to be honest. It will relax you about as well as a small glass of wine— no exaggeration. But it’s not the yummiest thing ever.

I love this tea. It’s a lovely and unusual herbal tea. It has quite a few ingredients, a number of which are pretty unusual (catnip?), so I have no idea what it is that comes out in the flavour, but it manages to be both perfectly soothing and also somehow… almost spicey, but not in a traditional sense. In any case, it’s lovely. Also, I loooove the picture on the box. Plus the name is cute. I pretty much try to have this one in my tea cupboard at all times.

I love tea but I’m usually having to ignore the unpleasant taste of not of them. This tea by far is the best tea I’ve ever had, I love it! I don’t see myself buying a different one.

This tea… It’s not for me. It’s very, very sweet. It’s minty. It’s lemony. It’s got a warmth from the cinnamon in it, but it’s cooling due to the mint. I don’t know. It’s not horribly offensive, I just don’t love it.

Nice and sweet, hint of mint. A bit more mild than I prefer, but still a good tea. I like to mix it with Bigelow’s or Twining’s Chamomile tea or Bigelow’s “Sweet Dreams” for when I’m going to bed.
