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.

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

    • Red Wolfe


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

    • Bailey Green


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

    • Miriam Johnson


      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.

    • Maria Burns


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

      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

    • Rebecca Ronco


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

    • Max Sugerman


      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.

    • Elizabeth K.


      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.

    • Leora Harrell


      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.
