Tranqui is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine principals. These Ayurverdic herbs balance the meridians that have been thrown out of balance and therefor affecting sleeping patterns. Tranqui is designed to work on all causes of insomnia and therefore can be used to treat all forms of insomnia regardless of the cause. Tranqui is not an actual tea as it does not contain any tea leaves but purely herbal medicine. Once the hearbs are heated with boiling water the medicinal properties are released.
