Default Trader Joe's Organic 'Relax' tea...

I'm calling it my 'happy drink' . I've started drinking it three days ago, and I"m in SUCH a wonderful mood. Its delicious (if you like licorice). Its just herbs, and organic, and I'm in LOVE with it.

ingredients (all organic): fennel, licorice root, rooibos, anise seed, cinnamon, gigner, cardamom, cloves, peppermint, strawberry leaf.

Its awesome

Oooh, thanks! I'll get some next time I am there -- I hope this weekend.

We've been enjoying the Yogi Ginger Tea that we get there, too. It's a little spicy for me but DH looooves it with some honey in it.

My thoughts exactly! Well there's one an hour away, but that's too far for tea.

Interesting. I have various relaxation blends of tea. Do you think it is the ingredients of the tea or the process of tea drinking...the hot water, the steeping and lovely aroma, slowly sipping the simmering brew.. I love me some tea.

Maybe all of the above.. but there is just something about it. The 'renew' one is fantastic as well. I gave it to the teachers in my dd's classes, and one yesterday grabbed me and said "WHERE did you get that tea?! My family and I LOVED it! So I told her where I got it , and promised to give her some tomorrow . So, its not just me . My sister dragged her 4 kids to TJ's today just to get some

Default Re: Trader Joe's Organic 'Relax' tea... *update post 12*

they are discontinuing it

they are all out of both local Trader Joe's .

I actually teared up on the way home- I had an awful day yesterday and was looking forward to stocking up when I went last night, and was so upset when they were OUT and told me they won't be getting anymore.

My sister got me 4 at her local trader Joe's so, I'll be good for a while.. but

!

Doing some googling it looks like its made with:
fennel seed, licorice, rooibos, anise, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, peppermint and strawberry leaf.

So I bet you'll be able to find something comparable or make your own!
