    Madwolf you are so right it tastes icky! bought some today at our health food store and brewed about 1tbls in a cup of water. Yukky! Put a bit of spleda in the cup and drink 1/2 of it after work. Wanted to be sure it was sedating for me before I drank at bedtime. I layed down and had this welcome (very unfamilair for me!!) feeling of drifting off to sleep. Big old orange cat jumped up on my tummy before I could fall asleep. Just wanted to let you know I am taking your advice Madwolf and bought the tea. I finally went to sleep last night a 4:30a.m only to have to get up at 7. I am a zombie!!!! Will drink tea tonight and let you know.

    I think I might cap it too. It takes so nasty that I am not consistant with it. Madwolf must have a good tummy because the stuff makes me want to puke!

    I have only made it a few times. I think I used about 1tbl. I just steamed a cup in the micro and put the tea in the cul. Let it steep for 5min and then strainded it. I tell you Jody this sleep deprevation is the worst! I am now trying ZMA- this is my 3rd night. Have had to use the ambein every night with it. That ambein depresses me.
    good luck with the tea!
