This tea is called Lovely Break and boy could I use one of those. My law school decided to take exams right up until the very last day they could, December 21st, which made for a very short break following weeks of significant stress and pressure. As much as that sucked, it would have been okay if the other side of our holiday wasn’t also weeks of significant stress and pressure. Yeah…for some reason the geniuses at Western thought it would be awesome to start the new semester off with a January Intensive period which requires completing a highly involved research paper and reading 1000s of pages of case law. So a lovely break would be wonderful right about now.
Unfortunately, I don’t think this tea is the Lovely Break for me. It is a fruit tisane with apple, rose hip, elderberry, blueberries,hibiscus, white hibiscus, moringa, and flavoring. It is meant to blend the sweet taste of wild berries with the delicious notes of cookies. While I sort of get the wild berries, the cookies are a definite no go. This tea is a whole lot of hibiscus and generic berry. Sort of sweet but mostly tart.
So while it was fun to try something new, this tea is not what I would call a lovely break, even if writing this review gave me a minute away from all the legal stuff. Now back to work…

I love herbal blends and drink them all day longer regardless of what time it is. Chamomile has never had that sleepy affect on me and I’ve yet to find an evening blend that relaxes me because of what is in the cuppa, not just the act of drinking tea. (Drinking tea is therapeutic to me overall.)
Enter Headache Begone! A Tea Mistress Herbal Blend. Brewed with water at boiling and allowed to steep for about 7 minutes, this tea may not have cleared up the headache I had, but did something else. This tea literally relaxed me from head to toe. One serving of this tea had me droopy eyed and ready to call it a night. I couldn’t believe it. One serving of this tea had me droopy eyed and ready to call it a night. I couldn’t believe it. Wasn’t sure if it was the combo of chamomile, passionflower, and peppermint, but this tea was my hero for helping me get a solid night’s sleep.
Besides the affect the tea had on me, the herbal blend had a great taste as well. Minty, citrusy, with a herbaceous tone. Really easy to sip for an herbal blend. Sometimes the herb blends just go to far for me and the taste isn’t smooth. This blend was just about as perfect as you can get with an herbal blend that as a wellness factor to it. I actually ended up placing an order for more of this blend.
I have a pretty stressful job, am a mom, and am the admin for SororiTea Sisters along with having my own tea business. To say I’m a busy cat is an understatement. At night it seems like my mind turns forever in trying to think if I have everything I need done or set for the next day. With this tea, I’ve been able to enjoy a more restful sleep and even more relaxing evening. I used to grab for a cup of wine and still will but it sure is nice to have an herbal blend ready for those nights where I might need a bit more comforting. Can’t confirm whether or not the tea helps with headaches, but this tea sure relaxes me!
