Minty and very relaxing. Eluthero very calming, and I actually sometimes use as a meditation aid. Awesome tea!

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.

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!

Really, really good tea. The ginger is subtle, but gives the cup a little “jazz”.

One of my favorite teas. It has such a unique flavor, and it’s sweet enough that it doesn’t need any honey.

Flavors: Lemon Zest

Yummy, and quite relaxing – though I can’t seem to find it anywhere now :(

Maybe it’s the placebo effect, but I swear this tea does make me more relaxed to the point of sleepiness. Learned the hard way not to drink it at work! But it’s so hard to resist sometimes because it tastes oh so delicious! Great bagged herbal tea that tastes like the ingredients and is exactly the thing you want before bed or after a long day on your feet. Even the smell puts a half-loopy smile on my face. Love it. On par with my first celestial seasonings love, honey vanilla chamomile.

While not my favorite, I purchased it for a nice herbal means to quell my over thinking. What can I say? It does the job.

Absolutely wonderful tea! I love it! It smells so minty and fresh! I have a bad sore throat right now and this tea hit the spot! I love it! The taste is amazing as well. It slightly reminds me of Sleepy Time. Can’t wait to drink more!

My wife came back from the store with this after we had a real stormy fight. Cheryl’s always doing things like that – little presents for people. Anyone at all. She’s the kind of woman who gets her postman a Christmas present. I don’t know how she’s put up with me, a sour old crab with so much bile in his stomach it started to hiss and spit and burn itself. This tea has some traditional Oriental calming medicine, and I think it works. Might be related to poppies, if you catch my current (hehehe). You mainly taste some mint, chamomile, all those gardeny herbs. I hope Cheryl doesn’t have to buy it again though.
