I’ve been reading the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter and this girl knows her tea. So much so that I’ve taken up drinking tea instead of coffee in the mornings. Nothing fancy, just your standard hot water and a tea bag. But, if I ever did decide to go with the loose leaf tea crowd I’ll definitely check in with the Etsy sellers.
I kid you not, this is an actual listing:
2 Oz Wanna Be Sedated – Herbal Tea or Smoke Blend
The one, the only, the original: ‘Wanna Be Sedated’ blend:
This blend was designed to relieve anxiety and insomnia, and the floral undertones of Lavender Flowers and Chamomile make it pop with flavor at the first taste. The blend’s sedative qualities are derived from Wild Lettuce, Skullcap, St. John’s wort, and California Poppy, all hand-blended to perfection.
The flavor is beyond description – with sweet undertones of chamomile and floral lavender that compliment the strong flavor of the scullcap and wild lettuce.
Directions: brew 1-2 grams per 6-8 oz of boiling water and let steep for 3-5 minutes…read a book, go to sleep, or just sit around being pleasantly relaxed. St. John’s Wort may become habit forming if used with great frequency – please use responsibly.
The Wanna Be Sedated blend can also be smoked in a water-filtered device for maximum effect, but preparing and infusion is recommended. Do not drive or operate immediately after consumption.
