joshuatreeanxietyfree.jpgJoshua Tree isn't like most of the other "brands" of tea we review here; they're not strictly tea merchants. Primarily, they sell sporting goods, so it's no surprise that the few teas they offer are herbal teas with names that advertise their intended effect, like aiding in sleep or helping with relaxation. I usually don't buy into that sort of thing, so I was interested to find that their blends use rather unusual ingredients. Anxiety Free's ingredient list, for example, includes "Skullcap, Eleuthero, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, Rose Petals, Red Clover Blossoms, Chamomile, Hibiscus, Nettles, Wild Oat Tops, Alfalfa, and a special blend of natural plant extracts for flavor." And since most of these ingredients would probably leave you wondering what the heck it actually tastes like, each tea's page starts off with a simple description of the flavor; for Anxiety Free, it's "floral flavors".

And floral it is. I'm typically not a fan of overly floral, and this one really does pack a floral punch, but it not solely floral. The aroma of the unbrewed tea has a strong tangy, fruity presence as well as floral. The brewed cup offers more in the way floral, and the taste is distinctly floral, as described, but it also has a nice balance with the tangier flavor, which reminds me of lychee fruit. It's a wonderfully complex flavor, especially for something described as simply having "floral flavors".

Bottom Line: It's an interesting cup, for sure, but I'm not 100% sure it's worth the $10 price tag for what I think amounts to about an ounce of tea (the site says approx. 25 cups). It's a solid blend for a merchant that doesn't specialize in tea, though, and if you're into herbal teas with a specific purpose, this might be right up you're alley.
