This is up there with Constant Comment in my sentimental journey of teas. Celestial Seasonings’ herbal teas got me through high school, and given my schedule, it was mostly Lemon Zinger in the morning and Sleepytime at night.

Even though I don’t drink it all that often anymore, I still always keep a box of Sleepytime around for nights when I do stupid things like drink caffeine at 2 in the morning. It’s soothing, with just the right amount of mint. Maybe it’s Pavlovian at this point, but just smelling it seems to settle my mind a bit and it actually does make me a little sleepy.

It’s not one of my favorite herbals, but it’s good and it’s familiar, and sometimes it’s just what I need. Tonight is one of those nights.

Preparation

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
