This is my first time buying this tea and I’m glad I did. the stress of adjustment and finding myself brought on sleepless nights and over active mind. Everyone suggested drugs but I chose teas and faith. I had no idea what adaptogens were but decided to add this tea to my usual order. I have found this tea to be calming and tasteful. Is it helping? I can only say I enjoy the aroma and taste and feel better after drinking it. Sitting down to a cup of tea should always be relaxing and not rushed. I do believe India has many secret herbals the west could benefit from if we would open our minds. Maybe researchers need to drink tea and not coffee!
