drank Bedtime by Yogi
322 tasting notes

My ailment was improving nicely until I was forced to go mow the lawn in 100 degree heat.

So, I am going back to this old stand by to ensure a deeper sleep tonight.

I try to avoid using it too often so that it remains effective, and if I stick to that, it “really works”.

Liz hates the way Yogi teas taste, but I like the licorice esque sweetness.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Feel better friend! Licorice esque is a cool wordishness.

Hesper June

I hope you arise tomorrow morning feeling refreshed!

I bought Get Some Zzz’s for hubby. Is this better? I like licorice esque, too. Hope you rest well and feel better. My hubby has been sick for almost a week with a summer cold.

Jim Marks

This works. I don’t know if that’s better or not :)

ashmanra

Just remembered I had a sample that my daughter ordered. I gave him Stress Relief instead of this one, but he said it seemed to help! He said his brain wouldn’t stop spinning when he went to bed…lots of changes at work coming, but most of them really good! Still, you need to sleep!

Jim Marks

I know that mental sensation. It is the primary reason I don’t sleep well, in general.

Fever delirium makes it much more acute for me. Ugh. fever delirium is a preview of Hell, I’m quite convinced.

Bonnie

I get that sensation regularly from my migraines …almost like vertigo or being seasick. I close my eyes and play Chant or Russian Liturgical Music very low …drink cool not cold 7 up or mint tea (first I have to drink something high in caffeine which helps migraines) ..
but for cold and nausea …sticking with brat diet (bread, rice, applesauce, tea) helps the tummy and head feel better.

Jim Marks

This is a metaphorical spinning. Thoughts that are caught in a loop going around and around. Tuesday evening I had all the hymns I’d worked hard to chant correctly “stuck” in my head as my fever got worse. Not in a calming way, but in a skipping record on the wrong speed kind of way.

During a bad migraine or fever delirium I’ll be frantically trying to compose software code in my mind to “break” the loop I’m stuck in. Of course, then the code itself becomes the loop.

Bonnie

Methinks both are horrid! I grab my Icon of the Theotokos and cling as I try to keep from spinning off the edge of the planet!

ashmanra

Ugh! I get the thoughts spinning thing sometimes, so that is why I thought Stress Relief might be the better tea for him. If he could quit thinking about work, he could go to sleep!
Next time, I will try the Bedtime tea and see what works best for him, and ask him to compare the effect of those with Get Some Zzzz’s.

Jim Marks

I steep for 10 minutes and drink it 15-20 minutes before turning in.
