Well my history with Sleepytime tea from Celestial Seasonings goes back a long, long way. Back around 1973 I started drinking Sleepytime. I drank it a lot to help sleep (obviously). Back then I didn’t use any sweetener and I got sooooo tired of Sleepytime. I have been really reluctant to try it again. So I found the Vanilla version and tried it. Hey, not bad! I added a little sweetener this time and I like it. I can see this becoming a regular evening beverage. The taste is mostly vanilla and spearmint rather than the heavy camomile I remember. I can’t say its my favorite it it will serve its purpose well.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I was very pleasantly surprised by this version, as the straight Sleepytime now has too much spearmint for my tastes.

Ohhh.. might have to give this one a try when we run out of the regular Sleepytime. My son goes back and forth between Sleepytime and Bigelow’s Sweat Dreams.

:D Just have to laugh… Don’t take offense… but you wrote Sweat Dreams. It must be the first grade teacher in me! or maybe its for women who wan to see what hot flashes during menopause feels like. Ah, I remember those days. :D

I know what you mean about afraid to try a different flavor of an old standby. There is a peach Sleepytime that I don’t necessarily want to try.

Lol.. Oopsie!! I didn’t proof read my note… Guess that’s what happens when I don’t. I don’t think anyone would want to practice for hot flashes, but hey, who knows these days..?

I don’t think anyone would want to practice for hot flashes, but hey, who knows these days..?I don’t think I’d try the peach either. We don’t often like peach “flavor” at my house. My son saw the kids version which I believe is grape and he was intrigued. I’m not so sure about that one either, but the vanilla sounds tame enough & drowning out a bit of the chamomile wouldn’t be a bad thing. We occasionally get coupons for Celestial Seasonings & that might be a good time to try a new flavor… A tiny less invested if we don’t like it.

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight and am really trying to increase my exercise. I am now walking about 4 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
