We always throw one bag in when we make sweet tea (3/4 gallon or so) and it changes the drink completely.
It’s pretty decent on it’s own also.

I love this tea. In my opinion, it’s one of the best herbal teas I’ve had. Drinking this before doing yoga, or before bedtime makes me one happy gal. After going to Boulder, CO a couple months ago and touring the Celestial Seasonings factory, I am impressed by how organic their teas are. They work with farmers all over the world for the best ingredients. Never though I would digest catnip! :)
Discovered this tea when I was looking for something to help my throat during a particularly nasty sinus infection. Very different, very soothing flavor. Definitely seemed to coat my throat on the way down which was perfect for my coughing. I will purchase this over and over again.
The hops make this tea slightly bitter to me, but I love peppermint, cinnamon, ginger, and lemon. I’ve had pure hops tea and those four ingredients I listed definitely mellow out the hops. I love the earthy, grassy taste to this tea and it’s definitely mellowing me out a little bit, though nowhere near what Rx medication would do. It’s subtle and tasty. I love it with a spoonful of raw/unfiltered local honey and a splash of hazelnut milk.
An excellent tea to calm the nerves, ease pain and regain female balance. I go to this before I try ibupofen and most of the time it helps immensely. I think it tastes great. If you like minty, sweet, grassy teas and the subtle cinnamon flavor is a nice treat. I find it more calming than Kava tea.
With Eleuthero, peppermint, cinnamon, ginger, chamomile, West Indian lemongrass, licorice, catnip, tilia flowers, and natural lemon flavor this is a cup I enjoy as a calm-inducer more than a tasty treat. It does cause your thoughts to be as pure as a misty mountain top, even if I don’t enjoy the taste of some of the ingredients.
I’ve been drinking this on and off for a couple of years now and it’s pretty good if you don’t oversteep (a very bad habit I’m trying to break). My taste buds are a little on the stubborn side, but the mint, chamomile, and eluthero ginseng are the strongest flavors to me. Honestly, I love simply smelling the steam of a freshly brewed cup more than drinking it.
