I was curious to try this one; I tend to like to drink relaxing herbal teas, and I like the various active ingredients, which include passionflower, chamomile, lavender, catnip, and rosemary, as well as some of the inactive (flavoring) ingredients.

I thought this was pleasant but I didn't notice any relaxing effects other than the usual relaxation I achieve by drinking a cup of any type of tea or herbal tea.

The cup smells minty, and the flavor is slightly sweet, presumably from some combination of licorice and stevia. The minty quality smells more like peppermint than spearmint, but both are evident.

The flavor and aroma is pleasant but somewhat generic or non-descript. I think of this as a tasty, pleasant, if unremarkable herbal blend. Flavor-wise, if I were blending this on my own, I'd omit the licorice and stevia, go with straight spearmint (no peppermint), and probably add lemon balm. I also might add thyme. The quantities of passionflower and chamomile included are too little to contribute noticeably to the flavor, which is a shame I think because I love the herbaceous pungency of passionflower, and the fruitiness of chamomile. These were lost behind the foreground of mints and sweet licorice and stevia.

I liked how I felt after drinking this, but I didn't notice much of a relaxing effect. I think the quantities of the herbs included are too low to have much of an effect. I've drunk pure passionflower tea, and it can be quite potent, but the 180mg included in this tea bag seems a negligible amount...I'd spoon out 2 grams worth to brew a cup if I wanted to notice a relaxing effect.

The same goes for the other herbs...180mg of chamomile seems like nothing to me, a typical teabag of pure chamomile would contain 1.4 grams, or more for the more generous tea bags.

I'm skeptical that this blend is strong enough to have any noticeable medicinal effects.

If I want a relaxing herbal tea, I usually will brew up tulsi (holy basil) tea, and I'll use a quantity closer to 2-3 grams of leaf, about 1-2 typical tea bags.
