I have really enjoyed this Calming Buddha Blend tea by Buddha Teas. I am not usually a big tea bag drinker - mostly because I feel like you lose the best parts of tea by drinking it as a fine powder but this tea was an exception. It was very flavorful, had great color and didn't taste like a bagged tea.
Ingredients for this tea include kava kava root, organic skull cap, organic lavender, organic chamomile flowers, organic St. John's wort, organic cinnamon, organic passion flowers and organic spearmint.
This herbal tea has found it's home on my office shelf and is definitely will be one of my main go-to's for my afternoon tea!
I rate this tea at 5 out of 5 stars.

When Buddha Teas first reached out to me via Instagram - I was super excited. I had followed their feed for awhile and checked their website out a few times but had not tried their teas before. I told them to send me a favorite and something that was a little adventurous.
They sent me this Chaga Tea and the Calming Buddha Blend tea. As soon as I opened the box I was like "Chaga? What the heck is that?!" I read the box and realized it was a mushroom...uh oh. This is going to be weird. I sat down and did some reading on Chaga.
Here's what I learned:
To see what this mushroom looks like, check this article out. I was intrigued by my findings to I took it to work with me. Since then I have completely fallen in love with this tea. It's delicious. I was really afraid that it would have a dirty or woody flavor that might be off putting. Not at all.
This mushroom tea is steeped with hot water (200 degrees-ish) for 5-7 minutes. It has a smooth flavor similar to Ceylon tea minus the orange. It's not obtrusive and an easy sip. I wouldn't recommend adding sweetener - defeats the purpose of the healthy properties of the tea.
I have sipped Chaga Tea once a day for about a week. I often have a cup first thing in the morning instead instead of my black teas. It has been a nice change and I have really enjoyed it - plus I feel better because I feel like I am drinking something that is good for my body and helping my immune system.
I completely recommend this tea and I am so glad Buddha Teas got me out of my comfort zone with this delicious herbal tea!
