With all the stresses in our lives, sometimes you just need a tea to bring you back to a harmonious and peaceful place. So I go with the aptly titled, Calming, from the wonderful Yogi Tea.
I’ll admit, I haven’t been my usual relaxed self and after I had a cup, I started feeling inner peace and joy. It might be a placebo or it might be the natural ingredients.
Nevertheless, I feel good and I am much more comfortable typing this out as opposed to a little while ago. I can feel the stress fading away. If I drank this all the time, would I always be this content? I’d like to think so.
The flavors have been presented to you, and they all bring something to the table. In reading the synopsis of this tea, I didn’t know Lemongrass and Gotu Kola (which I had not heard of until trying this tea) had such a powerful effect on our nervous system. The Licorice really gives it a flavor. And I’m not usually a fan of Licorice, in tea or candy form, but it works to perfection here. And the lavender feels so good on my tongue and taste buds.
This is one of the higher tannin teas I’ve had in a while, and that comes as no surprise. Yogi has some of the best and most popular teas in the world today. If you’d like to see a previous tea of theirs I reviewed, click here.
It’s more than the hot goodness that Yogi provides – it’s also the spiritual aspect displayed on each and every box. Most of the big tea companies don’t do this (nor do they have to) and this spiritual message is what sets Yogi apart. It just makes the tea drinking experience that much more meaningful.
Each bag has a message of love, hope, compassion, and other superlatives that are all full of goodness and positivity. How can you not love this? In this moment, it makes me want to better myself as a person and bring love to everyone around me. These guys have done their job! And a masterful one of that to boot.
What can’t be forgotten is how amazing this tea is. How beautiful are the leaves inside? I just had to get a close up.
The finished product leaves an impressive color that is too beautiful for words. The pictures and my writing won’t do it justice. I strongly recommend this tea to anyone who wants to relax, feel good, or just drink something wonderful. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.
