Featured Spotlight: Valerian Root Tea
This month's spotlight tea is Valerian Root Tea from Buddha Teas. It's a naturally caffeine free herbal tea that relieves pain and soothes the brain and nervous system. It's aroma is slightly pungent, reminding me of patchouli. The taste is more mild and smooth. It really is a great after-dinner tea.
Called the Waters of Tranquility, it is used as a natural sleep aid. Low dose are recommended and it should not be taken with sleep-inducing medications since it will enhance their effects.
