This tea is specifically geared towards relaxation, and is another high-quality herbal tea blend from Chai, Baby. All of the ingredients are whole and of obvious quality when you look at them through the see-though mesh teabag.
The tea itself tastes strongly of licorice, because they have both licorice and fennel as an ingredient, and that makes this a naturally sweet tea. The ingredients are not only relaxing, but very soothing to the tummy, making this an excellent digestive aid or after-dinner tea. Not to mention being a great caffeine-free bedtime tea!
Chai, Baby! describes this tea as:
Relax, baby! Our all-natural Relaxation Blend, an herbal tea based in the principles of Ayurveda, combines premium spices and roots, such as cardamom, licorice, ginger and fennel. This blend contains NO CAFFEINE.
16 clear pyramid sachets in our vibrant signature tin. (Note: each tea sachet can be used 2-3 times in the same sitting.)
We grew up with Ayurvedic herbal remedies. (For those who are unfamiliar, Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of holistic health maintenance, focused on keeping an individual in balance and alignment with nature.) Sore throat? We chewed on pungent cloves. Bad cough? We downed concoctions of turmeric, black pepper and milk. Headache? We rubbed our foreheads with cinnamon oil. The best thing was that they worked beautifully!
We wanted to add a unique, delicious Chai, Baby! blend, based in the principles of Ayurveda, that would promote relaxation. In fact, our Relaxation Blend is “tridoshic,” meaning that it benefits and balances all three Ayurvedic body types. All of the ingredients have a calming and harmonizing effect, particularly with regard to digestion. Though it will benefit the drinker at any time of day, it is intended to be particularly soothing after meals. So take a load off and relax, baby!

I love the Chai, Baby! line of teas, and this is another fabulous creation of theirs. It’s also a beautiful addition to your kitchen in its bright high quality green and yellow tin. This tea is a wonderful relaxation blend, and a lovely herbal tisane. Its flavor is hard to describe, mostly natural licorice, if you know what that tastes like, and only a very light warm spice flavor from the combination of spices. The spices – ginger, cardamom and coriander – are not so much “spicy” as warming and lightly flavorful. A lovely blend for any time of day! The rose petals lend it an aesthetic touch as well as a hint of floral notes to the tea.
