Good and soothing. Strong taste of chamomile, valerian, mint, and lavender. Maybe some cinnamon or light ginger? Light, floral kind of taste with a satisfying bite.

Steeping it for this long makes it taste a bit worse than it would at 5 minutes, but at least the Valerian Root packs more of a punch this way.

Flavors: Honey

This tea was pretty good. I think slightly better than some other bedtime teas I have had. I liked it lukewarm with lemon infused honey.

This is my first tea review here. I had hoped to develop my tea palette a bit more before chiming in, as I’m still new and experimenting. But I thought I’d write this as a warning.

This tea has a late taste of what I can only describe as moldy hay. It’s fine on initial contact, but has an extremely powerful “something” that I found to be pretty darn objectionable.

I only tried this tea as a relaxation aid, as I’m having a bit of difficulty passing a tactile test and seem pretty nervous on my previous attempts. I’m just one opinion, but I certainly would not want to go to bed with this taste in my mouth.

The only redeeming quality was that it “worked,” in that it gave a pretty deep REM sleep.

After I sip this tea, the sweet stevia kind of coats the back of my mouth and throat. It smells herby but the flavor is a pretty herby-medicinal, only slightly softened by the sweet stevia flavor. I’m not sure if this is just me but my tummy was a little unhappy after sipping it.

This was…ok. The aroma was great. I got mint, Chamomile and various herbs and everything worked together nicely. I tasted it and it was surprisingly sweet, as others have mentioned. I got the mint again, some earth and the herbs. But as I swallowed, I got a cooling feeling that was kinda weird. I have since finished my cup and my stomach is now upset. Not really digging this tea anymore. Hopefully it at least does what it said it will and enables me to get a nice night’s rest. I’ll keep you posted.

So, my stomach eventually settled and even with the great night of sleep I got, I won’t be having any more of that. I really hate having my stomach upset and while I’m not sure it was the tea that did it, I’d rather not take the chance again. So, any other suggestions for a bedtime tea?

A very odd tasting tea. It tastes like chamomile then, after my sip I get a rush of sweet flavor in the back of my throat. It doesn’t especially make me tired or relaxed, but it tastes ok. For medicinal purposes, I’d rather have sleepytime extra tea.

I don’t get why this tea gets so much hate. I personally like it. While it is room temperature, it can taste very bitter and the mint doesn’t make it any better, but otherwise I like the taste while it is freshly warm. I find it to have a very relaxing and calm aroma and very “natural” sort of taste although the honey-ish flavor at times can be overpowering.

It isn’t a great tasting tea. I like plenty of honey in it, but I’ve really found it effective for a good night’s sleep. I actually like it better than straight chamomile, and find it does help me get a restful night.

I played a gig tonight with my trio, 2 hours of Beatles music on flute, harp, & cello. Then I came home & spent the last couple of hours with my son Drew, watching the 3 episodes of Dr Who that I hadn’t seen yet, plus all the previews of the upcoming special. A perfect ending to a perfect day :)

Oh, and Sipdown!

JustJames

I saw the word “Beatles” and I had to come a-runnin’.

Not really alot to say about this tea. I’ve been staying up way too late, & although it won’t knock me out, it doesn’t have any caffeine, so if I stay up again late tonight, at least I can’t blame it of tea!
I used 2 bags. I like licorice root, & it gave me something to sip during the block party. I like my neighbors, but don’t really know them all that well, even though I’ve lived here 12 years. Everyone is always so busy, including me. I found out this one chick who is a religious fanatic makes her own kefir & cultured veggies, just like me. I might get a kombucha starter from her. The guy across the street & a few doors down is a professional cellist, who knew? We might get together & jam. There were other revelations, and a good time was had by all!

I really like this tea. It really helps me sleep. I drink either it or chamomile. I like to switch up my night time tea. I like listening to Echoes (www.echoes.org) reading a book, and drinking tea. And then I go to sleep. I found this particular tea about a year or two ago. I swear by it. (I don’t come to steepster all that often, but I missed you guys tonight.) Spanish is not going so well, I’m getting a D. But I have lots of opportunity to raise my grade. Another point, I get paid tomorrow, so yea! And I get to see my friend Mike. Have a good night, and keep drinking tea, steepsters. In case you are wondering I’m reading the book: The Truth, by Michael Palin, and a book on Jack Hannah.

I’m just over in Pittsburgh. You can have the rest of mine:)

This is my favorite bedtime tea, and if it didnt make me so sleepy, it would be my favorite tea period. The most delicious of all, I look forward to this delicious bedtime treat. It is herbal and has a sweet aftertaste.

I really like this one, but I make it in an enormous mug that holds at least 16 oz of water. It tempers the licorice flavor nicely.

This is one of those ‘take it like medicine’ teas for me. Yogi always uses so much licorice in their darn blends! They could make licorice-free versions and make me very happy. What keeps me coming back to Yogi (besides how effective the teas are) are the little messages printed on the tags. Good Earth Teas used to do that, but now they have plain white tags. Tonight’s tea fortune is “Real happiness lies in that which never comes nor goes, but simply is.”

A little philosophy with your tea, I like it.

The tea smells good but the taste is pure licorice. Oh snap, stevia? I knew this tasted sweet. Yuck. Like I said, take it like medicine! Hopefully good night soon.

Vaguely minty, strange taste. And I’m feeling a little nauseous… Not sure if it actually is the tea… I do feel more relaxed so I guess I will try again sometime to test it out.

BB #5 for today. I received this one in a swap – I think it was CupOfTree but I am sorry if I got that wrong! Forgive me!

This has a WHOLE LOT of ingredients going on but all I can really pick out above the rest is the Licorice. It’s very herbally and it’s not really my fave taste by a long short BUT if it DOES work for mentally clarity…I suppose it does what it’s supposed to, eh?

I’m conflicted. I want to rate this low but like I said if it helps with what it claims I don’t want to rate it low…so I won’t rate it at all (for now) maybe down the road.

I’m darn happy I got to try this tho! Thanks a bunch!!

CupofTree

Lol yeah it was me. I haven’t rated this one either yet but the first time I tried it was during writing a research paper and I think it did the job of giving me clarity for at least a little while.

TeaEqualsBliss

I did give me a lil bit of a wake-up so that was good :)

gmathis

I think Yogi puts licorice in ev-er-y-thing!

It was a beautiful day outside today, but this afternoon was very trying. (Family stuff.) I want to go to bed and relax and dream sweet dreams, so I am drinking some of hubby’s night night tea.

It is extremely sweet so I am sure it must be loaded with licorice root. There is a tiny minty hint and lots of flavor that I really can’t identify. I will say I find it extremely drinkable. Of course, it is a tisane, not actual tea. It is almost liquid candy. I added no sweetener.

I will try to update tomorrow to whether it just tasted good, or actually worked!

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.

ashmanra

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!

Jim Marks

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

TeaEqualsBliss

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

Missy

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).

K S

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.

JacquelineM

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!

JacquelineM

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! :)
