With claims like “the bitch stops here”, I had to choose this tea and put it to test. I wouldn’t consider myself a very negative or extremely moody person, but hey we all have our moments and to be honest I haven’t recently found myself in a dire situation to be like “okay get that tea now!” but I of course had to try it anyways.
Lynn Higgin, the creator of Crazy Bitch Tea is an herbalist. In her signature blend, she combines Chaste Tree Berries, Dandelion Leaf, Holy Basil, Alfalfa Leaf, Catnip, Meadowsweet, Black Haw Bark, Chickweek, Cinnamon Bark, Cramp Bark, Shatavari Root, Skullcap, and Uva ursi. Quite the concoction.

This tea came pre-bagged and had a slight floral smell, but more vegetal and earthy than anything. The catnip was the prominent smell to me, but maybe only since I have cats. The tea liquor was an oily golden yellow color with a slight cinnamon scent. The taste reminded me of lemon balm and mint and slightly toasty. I tried this tea a few times and each time I couldn’t get past the mint flavor, I tried to find subtle hints of other herbs but I was stuck with mint.
This tea in my opinion isn’t really advertized towards those looking for a good flavorful sip, it’s clientele is women looking for an herbal remedy to help with PMS. Be aware some of these herbs are not recommended to take while pregnant or nursing.
Of course we’re all different and what works for me may not work for you, but if you like mint and suffer from PMS, it’s worth a shot. Be advised, I was a bit disappointed in the pricing. This tea is $4.99 for only a half ounce (loose leaf) which won’t get you very far, the bagged tea is 9.99 for 12 bags, making it 1.20 per bag, a bit steep for what it is.
I give this tea a 4.0, not the greatest flavor, but if taken regularly may help PMS sufferers.
