Need an attitude adjustment? If the sky is gray and cloudy or your spirit could use a little lift, there are lots of mood-enhancing options out there.

Like a burst of sunshine, it begins to work its subtle magic as the bright flavors of lemon myrtle and luscious peach do a tango on your tastebuds. Meanwhile, our carefully balanced blend of calming lemon balm, St. John's wort and rhodiola does its part to help keep the blues away. So sip and smile. You'll be feeling peachy keen in no time.

Ingredients: Organic Rooibos (leaf), Lemon Balm (leaf), Lemon Myrtle (Bachousia citriodora) (leaf), St. John's Wort (aerial parts), Rhodiola (root) Extract, Natural Peach Flavor.

Notes: Tried 2 teabags per mug of tea this time. The sugar sweetened and smoothed out the flavor masking the citrus. It was significantly better this time with 2 bags instead of 1 (like i should have originally) and I had sugar (last time MilitiaJim had the sugar). Many teas you can get away with less than the proper amount (1 bad 12 ounces) but not this one.

Body: light
Aftertaste: citrus
Liquor: very clear, light brown with reddish orange tint
