Another tea that was requested by name by a family member, as we're all sad that Traditional Medicinals doesn't have any local suppliers, any more. TM teas are the best because they're so very fresh tasting, and strong...more effective than two or three tea bags of any other brand tried so far.

I love the taste of this tea. Not sure if it really helps with tension and stress or not (could just be that any hot drink helps with stress and tension) but it seems to. Definitely recommend. The only thing is I wish traditional medicinals would make tea bags without the string or at least without the tiny staple holding it in place...would make composting the bags easier.

This is an excellent tea. I don't like too many herbal teas but this one really, really helps me de-stress after a hard day. It almost has a very mild sedative affect on me. Sometimes, when my day at work is pretty crazy, I'll even brew a cup there and it helps calm things down for me. Tastes like peppermint and chamomile.
