drank Bedtime by Yogi
1828 tasting notes

Hubby drank this sample last night, and happily it smelled far less like butt than Kava Stress Relief! In fact, my sip tasted almost identical to the Celestial Seasonings throat soothing tea, or Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat. It was VERY sweet. Hubby didn’t get ready for bed right away but when he did go to bed, he slept. And he slept through my tossing and turning because the puppy got on our bed and left me no room. And he slept through me getting up at 5:30 am even though I didn’t fall asleep until after midnight.

He said he felt rested this morning and that he had slept well. I will probably keep giving him Get Some Zzz’s, but if I do change his sleepy tea it will probably be this one or CS Sleepytime Extra. I think I may make the dog go back to sleeping with his “sisters” and have a cup myself now and then!

Awwww Sam is a bed hog!

I haven’t tried it yet, but Mountain Rose Herbs is supposed to have a very effective sleepy tea:

Fidnemed Nighttime Tea

Fidnemed means a sacred and quiet forest grove. Relax and enjoy some of this full flavored infusion blend after a hectic day. We almost called this `Sleep on Rocks’ because it works so well.
Contains: organic Lemon Balm, organic Hibiscus flowers, organic Skullcap, organic Passionflower, organic Hops flowers, organic Valerian root, and organic Lavender flowers.

Whimpy chamomile makes me sleepy as can be, but I wanted to get this for my husband who has a tougher time sleeping.

Thanks for tip! I have seen good reviews on them!

Sam can curl up into the tiniest ball, but when he stretches those longs legs out he is almost as long as I am! Well, not quite, but still…And he wants to lie AGAINST me or draped over my legs so I can’t move.

And hubby always said, “I would NEVER let a dog sleep in my bed!” LOL! He is the one surreptitiously patting the mattress for Sam to jump up!

I’ll never understand how our teeny tiny dogs can somehow make a queen sized bed seem like a shoe box.

Before our Sammy passed…we had 3 dogs sleeping with us!

My cat has also learned how to hog the bed. He used to try to sleep on my chest which isn’t as comfortable as I thought it would be. Meh he’s a cat they don’t weigh much right? I found I would wake with his every little movement though when he’s sleeping on me.

When he wants out he takes turns with really nice wake up (head butts on the chin and purring) and not nice wake up (sticking claw into the back of the knee or biting little toe).

I can’t stand being hot at night. Our little dog, Spike, insist on laying against me at night. He is a furnace and growls if I try to move him. Spike is our killer chihuahua, jack russell, dachshund, mix. That makes for one little hyper dog that jumps three feet in the air but is sweet doing it.

K S That has to be one intense little dog :) I love all three of those breeds, and am trying to imagine how CUTE all three of them together must be!

ashmanra – your husband’s comment made me remember a comment my grandfather made. My grandfather had always had a dog, but his last dog before he died was a Schnauzer who did not like to sleep in bed, but rather under the bed. He exclaimed, “I can’t believe it! I slept with a dog my whole life!” and my mother and I cracked up and looked at my grandmother. He hee. When my grandfather realized how what he said could be interpreted he was hysterical too. The only one who did not laugh was my grandmother!!!

ashmanra

Jim: that is an accurate description of how I feel when Sam sleeps with us!
Bliss: I hope you have wall to wall mattress! LOL!
K S: And I am at an age where I want the room COLD when it is time to sleep!
Jacqueline: is this the grandmother who flung herself on her sister’s coffin? Too funny!

ashmanra

Missy: I think after just one not nice wake up, I would look like this in bed O.O

JacquelineM

ashmanra – yup, same grandmother! :)

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
