Ah, Tension Tamer. You may not taste the best (invariably better than the last cup of tea I had, mind you), however you do ease my tension amazingly well, and for whatever reason I craved you tonight. Welcome back to my cupboard, yet again.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I have not seen this on the shelf before. I will be paying more attention. The list of ingredients appeals to me much more than sleepytime extra. I really don’t care much for the spearmint in that one. Wonder how the two would taste together….

This is a weird mix, and it’s hard to describe. I do find it very relaxing though. There’s always some on the shelf here if you want me to send you some to try out.

It’s been a while since I’ve had it…believe I remember it was very lemon-minty.

At least it is peppermint with this one. I have to keep an eye out for it,

K S, I’m sure I’ve seen a location grocery store carry this one. I have yet to try it, too many other boxes of tea in my cupboard!

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. I now travel full time with only two carryon bags to my name. One quarter of those bags are tea.

It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more.

If I have enough, I’m happy to share. If I’m in your area, I’d love to swap, meet for tea, and explore together.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, travel and my writing and speaking work.

What kinds of teas do I normally like?

YES: flavored teas, fruity, dessert, chai, and spicy (REALLY spicy).

A FONDNESS FOR: all white teas, malty black teas, any herbal or medicinal teas, strange/weird teas you can only get in one place.

ALLERGIC TO: strawberries, lavender

DISLIKES: any added sugars, grains, lapsang souchong, and overly floral teas – I might enjoy a Jasmine Green every once in a while, but unless it’s a creamy floral tea (think roses in a chai, or the smoothness of a floral note in a French tea), I’ll likely pass. Earl Greys are a hit or miss with me; heavy on the cream or fruit notes and I might like it, heavy on the blergamot and I definitely won’t.
