I don’t sleep well, so I am perennially on the hunt for a good bedtime tea. This tea was mentioned somewhere on the discussion boards and the name (and positive review) piqued my interest. I ordered on Saturday and it got here Monday – with free shipping! Plus it was reasonably priced, so the company has made a really positive first impression.

Now for the tea itself. Dry and brewed, it has a fairly mild smell of chamomile, spearmint, and grass. It brews up a light yellow color that reminds me of sunflowers. The taste is like chamomile with a hint of lemon, and spearmint on the back end. I want to say that I can taste the valerian, but I’m not familiar enough with that flavor to say for sure.

This is easily one of the best chamomile teas that I have ever had; I would only put Harney and Sons chamomile on the same level. I don’t know yet whether this will actually help me sleep, so I’ll update tomorrow.

boiling water, 1 tsp for 8 oz, steeped 7 mins, per package instructions

Do let us know if helps with sleep! I’m curious as to how this one would stack up to Mother’s Little Helper, which has many of the same components.

Sounds pleasant, but I’m afraid of valerian.

Lindsey – I actually slept terribly last night, but I’m not ready to write off this tea. I’m going to try again tonight and have TWO cups (the only obvious solution). Will keep you posted.

Starfevre – Why are you afraid of valerian?

Starfevre

Taking too many psychotropic medications. Afraid of interactions with anything that has an active ingredient.

Lindsey

I’m sorry you had a rough night. Hopefully you were able to get some sleep last night, at least.

Kaylee

Thanks for the good wishes, Lindsey! I’m sure one day they will come true…

Starfevre – sorry to hear that! Boo for meds getting in the way, and here’s hoping that the meds at least help. Hey, on the up side, you can still have matcha :)

Starfevre

Yes indeed. Delicious delicious matcha.
