A Crippling Calm?

On a backpacking trip to the Pecos Wilderness in the 70’s, my Dad and I stopped to chat with a wilderness ranger. We swapped stories of course, and he told us about a hiker who had taken off his boots and socks for an afternoon nap. While the hiker slept, the shade moved, and when he woke, the high-altitude sun had burned his feet so severely that he could not hike back out. The ranger had helped evacuate him.

So you can imagine my horror when I read this on the back of a package of Tazo Calm Herbal Infusion

A single cup of Tazo Calm has been known to have the same effect as sitting for 45 minutes in a mountain meadow on a sunny day with your shoes off.

No thank you. I prefer to be able to walk after I drink a cup of tea.
