Aah stress, the word we use far too often in modern living. A little is ok and can be motivating but when it spirals out of control it can lead to a slippery path for health. All tea can be helpful (Theanine is a powerful de-stressor) but these brews are particularly effective at controlling those feeling overwhelmed by stress.
