This blend begins with eleuthero, an ancient herb believed to impart a sense of calm. We've added peppermint, ginger and lemongrass to create an uplifting and balanced tea.

      An honestly lovely tea for whenever you need to relax

      I tend to buy teas when they have cool names or cover art. But i love it when im suprised by how good they are. It was light and floral in a way that felt calming.

      The flavour of this tea is pleasant, and a flowery type of herbal. I was very surprised at how it actually made me relax and fall asleep. Plain chamomile tea never had that effect on me.

      Not my favorite tea. The combination of flavors seemed of balanced for me. Not entirely sure why.

      This works but I hate licorice so I couldn’t tolerate it long term. Recommended for people who like licorice.

      A very nice blend that does calm down my nerves if I am feeling anxious. Very soothing.

      I hate licorice in my tea, so I can't stand this one. My husband on the other hand, absolutely loves it.

      I like taking this with me in a thermos for work when I know I've got a hard day ahead of me.

      When I first tried this I wasn't a fan but I picked it back up when my cupboard was sparse and after a few cups it really grew on me. I've purchased several boxes since. Nice in the evenings.

      Quite pleasant but nothing really stands out in the ingredients to me

      Another nice herbal from celestial seasonings, calming and pleasant.

      One of my go-to drinks during the workday. The flavors blend so that none are overpowering and the combination of the smell and taste are perfect for relaxation.

      Wasn't a fan of this one. If you are a chamomile fan though it really shines through with the catnip

      I love this tea blend. It's great to drink at night.

      There's a strong taste to this one, but not unpleasant. Good for focusing and relaxing while studying.

      Theres a certain taste I can't quite place that I really can't stand in this tea.

    • 

      I really like liquorice flavored tea and this a great example. If you've ever had Avedo's Comforting Tea this reminds me strongly of it for a small fraction of the price.

      Too much licorice for me, but it's palatable if brewed carefully.

      This takes me back to childhood...it's a brilliant herbal and probably my favorite relaxtion tea

      One of my all time favorites, love this for an afternoon mellow out.

      I prefer black tea to most other teas, and I'm not usually a big fan of herbal blends. The first few times I made Tension Tamer, I didn't even drink it--I used it more for aromatherapy. The flavor is still not my favorite, but that's not because of the tea, it's because of my personal preferences. It really does help me to feel chill, so I drink it when I need a bit of mental relief. Add a dash of honey!

      Who else sips this tea and dreams of an internet famous drag queen?

      Good tea with smooth flavors, I usually drink it when I want tea at night

      This is a great tea for relaxing. I keep a box of tea in my desk at work.

    • 

      For the price, this tea is not bad. The flavors are very light and delicate, so you if like a bigger flavor, you should use two tea bags

      I was surprised how much I liked this tea. It's got a definite "herbal" quality, but in a pleasant way.

    • 

      I always keep this in the house because it really is so relaxing and helpful before bedtime.

    • 

      Tension tamer is an old favorite, and though I have moved on to loose leaf teas and enjoy new experiences more than older favorites, tension tamer is the best of the celestial seasonings teas. I can call up the exact flavor of it now. I think I will pick up a box next time I go to the store, in fact.

      I love this tea and always have. This is a perfect tea to start out with. Very calming and perfect for before bedtime.

    • 

      Though I enjoy drinking many teas this is a tea I always come back to. It has a very mild smooth flavor and a soothing aroma that help you relax after a long day at work. It goes great with a little honey.
