As a chronic migraineur, I have a lot of migraines, so this was one of the first herbal blends for a specific health ailment that made it to my cupboards. Blended by AmberFreda on Etsy, the current blend includes chamomile, feverfew, lavender, skullcap, cinnamon, and ginger. The feverfew, skullcap, and lavender are known to help with headaches, chamomile relaxes muscles, and ginger and cinnamon are great for the nausea that accompanies migraines. At the time that I purchased the blend, instead of cinnamon, cramp bark was used, so I’m sure that has an effect on the overall flavor profile compared to the current blend.
This is a very strong herbal tea, and the ginger especially has a strong scent and taste in the blend. If you like ginger teas, you shouldn’t have too much trouble with the flavor, though I find it still has a bit of a wet, earthy herbal taste. My preferred way of taking the tea is simply blending it with a bit of a strong lemon ginger, as the citrus flavors blend nicely, hide the earthy or herbal medicinal tastes, and make it really pleasant! Even plain, there is no bitterness to the blend from the feverfew, which is nice.
When my head is really raging, I tend to go for this tea. My migraines are severe and this tea can’t stop them, but when the nausea is awful and I can’t eat anything, I usually can manage tea, and this tea is light on the stomach and helps with the headache nausea a lot. Since it does have a strong flavor and is blended specifically for head health, I wouldn’t recommend it for just a general cuppa. Far better tasting teas out there for that!
