I was browsing for a tea to help me with my, um, Aunt Flo, who’s really been pushing me around these days. What I was looking for was one that said: Dear Crazy Lady, this will make you less homicidal. But there wasn’t one of those. So I picked up one of the brands with the euphemisms “eases stress” and “uplifts mood.” This one — also called Holy Basil — claims it “promotes a sense of well-being.” I don’t know if it really works. But it tastes good. And I do feel a little less homicidal.
