I typically like loose leaf teas but I turn to this tea almost every afternoon. I actually leave the tea bag in the cup the whole time I’m sipping it. I rather like the bitter cranberry taste for an afternoon sip. As for the weight loss claim… I don’t see any of the benefits (although I don’t have to lose any weight) maybe for those looking to lose? Overall I enjoy this tea.

I really only tasted the ginger and (I think) stevia. It’s very a overpowering flavor, but worked well to settle my stomach. I usual brew herbal teas for 5 min when I want to receive the full medicinal benefits, but this became very dark and I decided to only brew 2-1/2 or 3. Good for achy bellies, but not all that tasty.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

This bag has put me over the top. Obviously it’s late (1am), but I also have now consumed a hefty quantity of passion flower, chamomile, catnip, hops, et cetera!

The flavor is better than I recall it having been—of course, my powers of mental acuity are now severely impaired. I did notice that valerian is not listed among the ingredients on my new box of Relaxation Teas (of which Nighty Night is one). So the herbalists chez Traditional Medicinals appear to have changed the formula but not the name of this blend.

Well, whatever works—and this does!

Nighty Night!

Flavors: Flowers

In tonight’s steep-off chez sherapop, Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night is going sip to sip and sniff to sniff against Organic Nighty Night for Kids. They both appear to contain chamomile, hops, and mint, and a bunch of other “stuff” as well. From the scent of the dried tea, I’d surmise that the kid’s version does not contain valerian, while the grown-up version does. Why? Because it stinks just like valerian does!

To be honest, the only real difference I am finding is that the “For Kids” version is weaker, which makes sense, of course. Just as doses of over-the-counter medications for children are smaller, the “doses” of the soporific ingredients in this blend have been pared down.

This tastes fine, for what it is. There is a bit of a rootbeer or sarsaparilla flavor here, but overall, it smells and tastes a lot like one of the Yogi functional teas, which always contain something of a jumble of ingredients, many obscure. A lot of herbal action going on in such humble-looking filter bags. Nighty Night, too, is a functional tea, to be imbibed not for the pleasure of the brew but for the touted benefits.

We shall see shortly whether this homeopathic sleep remedy works or not…

I bought some of this from my local Target during the worst days of my cold earlier in the week. My favorite sick time beverage is freshly grated ginger root, boiled and strained, combined with some lemon juice and honey. I thought this would be a nice EASIER alternative for when I’m out of or too lazy to grate fresh ginger. The flavor is not quite as nice as fresh, but this sure works in a pinch! Ginger is SO soothing for sore throats!

I’m glad your cold is at least on its way out!

very yummy for a medicinal, herbal blend. tastes pretty much like mint! well today i’ve just been on a sipping rampage, and am apparently mortified of the idea of getting sick since i picked up a bunch of teas today, 2 of which were echinacea-based. the other one was Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Echinacea Complete Care (which tastes a bit of a disaster). are the claims of immune support true? who knows….most things are shooed away unless empirically tested/validated. not that i’d have it any other way, for we need such a rigorous vetting process in order to confirm a substance’s efficacy (or lack thereof). anyways…

i liked this one a lot. i don’t really get much in the way of elderberry, just mint with a slightly herbaceous edge.

the main ingredients are Echinacea purpurea & European elder flower, including their extracts/concentrates. the proprietary blend is comprised of organic ginger rhizome, chamomile flower, yarrow flower & peppermint leaf.

this had damn well better work.

I woke up Sunday (2 days ago) morning with my head aching, my sinuses COMPLETELY blocked, so much so that I could not breathe through my nose let alone taste or smell anything. My voice was hoarse and I felt achy and awful. “Ah here we go, this is gonna be really bad”. You know that feeling when your on the verge of getting REAL sick? Yep, that was me. Well, I headed out to the mall (I was determined to pick up some tea at Teavana’s and no stinkin sickness was stopping me..and it was the only morning I had without three small kids to care for so I HAD to go if I wanted to shop in peace. Well, I stopped in Shopper’s Drug Mart and saw this. I already use the daily detox tea by Traditional Medicinals and know they make quality stuff. I picked this up and hit up Teavana for some tea and headed home. I proceeded to drink 2 bag cups all day long. I probably drank 5 or 6 cups (16 oz mug brewed with 2 bags for about 10-15 minutes) Well I tell you it’s a bloody miracle!! I am SURE this stuff kicked my immune system into high gear and I dodged a major bullet! i am a tiny bit stuffed up but NOTHING like Sunday! I can breath through my nose and my taste and smell came back the day after power drinking this stuff. If you feel yourself getting sick BUY THIS AND DRINK LOTS RIGHT AWAY! It works, it really does! I highly recommend this tea and it saved me from having to deal with a 6,5 and 2 year old while horribly ill..in other words it saved me from hell on earth lol. This will be my go to tea when I feel a bug coming on. And it tastes ok too!

When I was little, my mother swore by Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat whenever I was sick and it worked beautifully. DavidsTea has an herbal named Bravissimo and it’s similar enough that when I’m sick or my throat is just sore, it soothes like nothing else!

The taste was something I wasn’t used to — not unpleasant but not what I was expecting. I added a touch of lemon and honey and it’s been helping soothe a mild sore throat.

I added this tea; it may be an older one. I wouldn’t be surprised. The legend on the box and bags proclaims that it “Supports Weight Control.” Honestly, I haven’t noticed a difference when I do regularly drink it. What I have noticed is that this tea has a strong celery taste, which is something I do not go out of my way to find in a tea. Or anything else that I drink. Even half an organic lemon won’t save this tea.

I’m not sure of the ingredients anymore, as I no longer have the box and the envelope is mute on the subject.

Boiling 7 min, 45 sec

I enjoy the taste of this. It is earthy and sort of resembles black tea. I prefer it steeped like crazy, 15+ minutes is best. I drink it when I feel crampy to help extend the life of any advil or pain medication I might be taking and it works well!

Boiling 8 min or more
