Glory all be to God!!!
I had prayed to the Father, please lead me to the right tea-pick.
And, so God showed me this brand.
I was left with the only choice to buy it and see.
I found out that this tea has properties exactly for my need:

“The health benefits of hibiscus tea also include relief from cramps and menstrual pain. It helps in restoring hormone balance as well, which can reduce other symptoms of menstruation like mood swings, depression, and overeating.”
Thank God!!! :)

This tea is not very tart compared to another hibiscus tea I have tried because of the Rose Hips. Hope you enjoy steeping! God bless your beautiful soul and may you be given peace by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! :) He is soon coming!

I tried this tea from the Traditional Medicinals Seasonal Sampler package which comes with various other tea samples.
I personally enjoy drinking this tea, because of its sweet taste. It is relaxing and rich in bold flavor. There is a soothing effect from drinking and sort of wanting to go back to taste for more after each sip. I am thankful that God has shown me this tea because now, I can write to you: please try this! It can help you. I recommend that you taste this tea and see for yourself. I pray that God keeps you healthy always , for He is Powerful and All – Wise! Amen in Jesus precious name.
Thanks for reading.
Have a good day.

Last tea bag in the box so it’s a Sipdown.
(tasting notes after Rant):
So I seem to really enjoy licorice flavored teas if they are blended with a bunch of other spices. Another one of my favorites is Stash’s Licorice Spice tea. Unfortunately licorice can be very overpowering and for some stupid reason it’s added to fruit teas etc. and you can only taste the licorice. They also do this with lemongrass and hibiscus.
Tasting Notes: the dry teabag smells very sweet, like licorice and fennel.
The flavor is the same as the smell of the dry tea bag when brewed. This tea is great when you sick and great when your not, it’s definitely not for everyone though.

Being a Singer, of the Classical Arts this Tea is literally MAGIC! The tea has an instant effect, almost as if one could “feel” the coating advertised as per the name of the product. The beautiful combination of Licorice Root & Fennel bring about an unusual but amazing taste with instant relaxing effects. If you tire your voice/throat often or simply want to show your throat some love!. This is the tea for you!

Quite like this one. I’ve never encountered a tisane that tasted so close to regular black tea. I’m a fan of foods that only have one ingredient, so that’s a plus too.

It does taste a little fruity (shocking), green, and woodsy. I read somewhere that this is what the American colonists drank while protesting the British Tea Tax. They called it “Liberty Tea.” I also found out that raspberries are only native to North America and Asia Minor, so I wound up feeling pretty patriotic while drinking this down.

I’m supposed to drink three cups of this a day to reap the health benefits. I’ve been averaging about two since I bought the box. I think it’s helping maybe slightly? Could just be a placebo effect.

If nothing else, it’s definitely a good stand-in for black tea when I’m craving it at 2:00 PM but really shouldn’t be consuming caffeine.

Flavors: Fruity, Green, Wood

A very sublime tisane – extremely relaxing. I grow my own spearmint spring-fall outside in my backgarden, but it is nice to have an alternative source for a good cup. I prefer spearmint over other kinds of mint (although I like and grow other kinds of mint too). I have drank this while sick, and also it is one of my top 3 favorite bedtime relaxation tisanes ( the others are chamomile lavender & nighty night valerian – both also from Traditional Medicinals). Once you start steeping it puts out a wonderful aroma that fills a whole room! It is sweet and crisp – and feels nice and cool on the throat. Just wonderful. Organic and fair trade. Steeped for 10 minutes in boiling water. Drank plain.

This Organic Weightless Cranberry tea is what I always use right after my period or during times of extreme inflammation (or when I’ve had too much IV fluid after a surgery) to eliminate water weight. For use by women and men.

Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding, have a kidney disease, are under 12, or are dehydrated (as per instructions on box). The description this tea (created by another user) needs to be updated but I cannot do that until my acct is a month old, so here are the updated ingredients until I can edit it : organic fennel fruit, organic red clover, organic uva ursi leaf, organic parsley leaf, organic cleavers herb, organic hibiscus flower, organic roasted chicory root, organic cranberry fruit, organic stevia leaf. As per box instructions I use just boiled water and steep 10-15 mins, drinking 3 cups a day for 2-3 days. If you are trying to lose weight in general this tea is not for you, it is only meant to be used for relief of temporary water weight bloat.

The flavor of this tea is pleasant. The cranberry and hibiscus are the strongest tastes, giving a pleasantly tart fruit flavor. This taste intermingles with the anise flavor from the fennel, and the sweetness of the stevia to create a delicious cuppa that you will want to drink more often that you should haha. But is best to only drink it when you need to as per box instructions, as these herbs are very potent. The tea is ruby red in color and is very pretty to look at. A mainstay in my cupboard.

Extremely relaxing! The chamomile and lavender are equally balanced to create a delicate floral treat. The lemon balm is in the background. I am a big lavender fan and was worried this tea would be too weak since it is bagged -but it is incredible! Traditional Medicinals never seems to let me down!! Trouble dragging ratings on tablet – I steep it 10 mins or more, with just boiled water. I’ m kinda miffed that chamomile is not an option to add to the noticed flavors box.

Red raspberry leaves are well- known to have medicinal value during a woman’s menstruation to help ease cramping . I use this tea all throughout my period, and it is a life-saver. Been using this for years. Flavor is similar to black tea.

Pros: The taste here isn’t so cloying as the Throat Coat. It just has a general herbal medicine taste.

Cons: It’s pretty obvious that Throat Coat soothes throats, at least temporarily. I never noticed any effect from this one. Didn’t do anything for my congestion.

Blech, so sweet. Way too much licorice root in this tea, at least flavor-wise. I don’t know if licorice root has a medicinal value?. Of course no one is drinking this for the taste anyway. It definitely took some of the pain out of my sore throat.

It didn’t fend off my cold, but points for effective symptom relief.

Fjellrev

Hope you’ll feel better soon!

Tamarindel

Thank you! I am definitely on the mend — I don’t have that dragging feeling of doom that came over me when the cold was in full swing — there’s just a little lingering congestion now, but I am kind of a wimp about colds. Just not used to being sick.

The taste doesn’t move me much one way or the other, but this does seem to be a great tea for insomnia. I try a lot of “sleep/relaxation” teas, and this is one of the most effective I’ve tried. It was even recommended to me by my acupuncturist, who’s really experienced with all types of herbal remedies. I’ll be buying this regularly as a sleep aid.

The licorice root is too strong for my liking. It pretty much overwhelmed all the other flavors, although I did steep it quite a while and it tends to get stronger over time.

I found the same thing with this tea. Personally I’d rather drink straight echinacea tea and use throat lozenges as needed.

rosebudmelissa

I agree. I just tried straight Echinacea for the first time and I quite liked it.

Kristal

At the first sign of a cold I start chugging!

rosebudmelissa

Sounds like a good strategy. I’ve been alternating it with peppermint and Lemon Ginger. It definitely seems to be helpful for me.

The taste is very strong, bitter, and nutty, and very similar to black coffee. I definitely would not drink this for the taste, but it’s still a great tea to have it around for digestive health.

This is a nice blend of mints, chamomile, and various herbs. I find is soothhing and it tastes very good. I will be drinking this as an every day herbal tea rather than just after meals or when I am sick.

That sounds like an unusual mix of flavors.

One of my favorite teas. The perfectly tart cranberry blends smoothly with the strong fennel flavor. This is one of those stand-alone teas, with strong flavors, which I appreciate as I don’t use sugar or milk with any of my teas.

I can honestly say that I also feel less bloated after drinking this. I’m sure not everyone will feel the difference, and perhaps it’s a placebo effect, but since I love the flavor so much, I can’t complain! It’s just an added bonus to feel firmer.

Absolutely delicious, I notice chamomile, sweet mint, dried flowery herbs, maybe something lemony or minty like catnip or lemon balm? Very soothing and not medicinal/yucky at all.
