Lullaby Time is one of my recent purchases of boxed herbals to drink in the evening. I saw no fewer than six “sleepy time” herbal blends at my local grocery. I’ve had the official Celestial Seasoning’s Sleepy Time Tea. I picked the store brand to try this time.

Dry leaves: Spring green and lighter with cream and tan.
Wet leaves: Bright green with yellow and brown.
Tea: Light yellow brown.

Smell
Dry leaves: Spearmint and sweet.
Wet leaves: Muted spearmint.
Tea: Spearmint with a touch of chamomile.

Mostly spearmint. Not super mint. Softened by chamomile. Perhaps a hint of citrus.

But did it help you sleep?

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I’m a bit of an insomniac so I’m not sure much, short of strong drugs, would help me sleep on a consistent basis. A warm cup of tea is always soothing and relaxing before bed though. Thinking back to last night, I drank this right before bed while watching Project Runway off the DVR and I was feeling quite drowsy by the end of the show. But it was also a bit after 2am.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
