I work in the freezer at a big box store—today I spent about 2 1/2 hours in -15 degrees. Brr! Had frost on my hair, eyelashes, scarf. I love it! I was definitely needing some tea when I got home, though. I hadn’t tried this before, and since I don’t want to be up for the next five hours, I figured now was a good a time as any.

Long story short, yum! I’m a sucker for mintyness, so this is a big thumbs up from me! Smells amazing, and happened to come with a “collectible tin,” aka, tea transporter for bags that aren’t individually wrapped. Happiness! A hot cup of tea on lunch can help bring feeling back to my legs. :D

This is one of my favourite bagged teas and herbal teas. I pretty much go for either Sleepytime or Tension Tamer whenever I just want a soothing evening tea. This one is quite chamomile-ish, but it has a bit of an extra something to it. Lovely.

There is A LOT of better “get sleepy” tea out there. Look harder. Even Bigelow’s version is better than this. This is just bland and old-tasting.

I’ve been drinking this all my life, and though now I find it too mild, it is a perfect choice for a palette that is new to tea. It’s gentle and soft, which is why I usually add honey to this rather than sugar due to its light taste.

I recommend this most for children and people new/just getting adjusted to tea.

[First Try] Less minty than I expected, which was nice because it didn’t feel too stimulating. Not at all sweet, either, which again sort of worked in favor of the lulling me to sleep aim. I don’t believe that the herbs in this blend are going to actually have any noticeable effect on sleep or calmness, but the experience of a cooling cup of warm tea plus the mellow flavor certainly had me relaxed and ready for bed.

UGh, I’m sure I need to try this one again because I kind of made it and didn’t sit to enjoy it like I do my other teas. I got not much flavor profile and mostly other sensory profile during this first impression, but I do have a whole box of this stuff so I can try it again.

This was such a miserable week for me, and I made this yesterday when I came home. I was frustrated, grumpy and sad. Mostly I needed something to calm me down, and since I had finished off the last of the Tazo Calm (and I haven’t seen a sale recently), which is my usual standby, I tried this one because I wasn’t in the mood for straight camomile and dealing with flower heads in my tea cup.

I don’t like it as much as Tazo Calm. It sleeps much more herbally, and reminds me of the Badger Sleep Balm if you’ve ever tried that. It’s also got a lot less inherent sweet than the Tazo version. BUT it is much lighter on the wallet and it did force me to calm down. I do mean force, it’s quite strong I think. I only had two small tea cups before I really didn’t want it anymore, and that wasn’t because it tasted bad. It does taste not too appealing cold.

I do know that I don’t like the packaging. I just prefer tea bags that are individually wrapped I think. Honestly I thought the tea bags stuffed in another bag and sealed with resealable glue… was a Trader Joe’s thing because I had never seen another company do it. I think it kind of takes out the portability of the teabag, which is why I still buy tea bags from time to time. This seems like it won’t keep the tea fresh for very long at all, and I don’t think I’m going to go through this THAT quickly. I suppose that’s one way of keeping the costs down though from company perspective.

I combined the Sleepytime with a vanilla I had around. I actually have no idea what brand the vanilla is. One of those thing you throw in a nice tea tin and stupidly write vanilla and swear to your self you’ll remember what it was. Duh! But it helps make it much more interesting. My vanilla is a loose leaf and the Sleepytime is a bag. I throw both of them in the brewing basket together and it works out fine for me.

Haha, when I started reading your comment I thought you meant vanilla extract, and then I had to go back and read it again. I don’t think I have any straight JUST vanilla flavored teas, the closest I have is probably an earl grey cream. I did pick up Sleepytime Vanilla when I picked up the Sleepytime though and I’ll try that another day.

This tea is not kiddin around. It really will put you to sleep. I mean, it won’t knock you out but if you find yourself over thinking a lot of things it helps calm your mind. Oh and don’t worry the flavor is good too.

Reminds me of my childhood. So nostalgic.

It serves its purpose – helped me sleep, and I have chronic insomnia – but it doesn’t taste good at all. All in all, it’s a good tea if you’re trying to sleep better, but the taste could definitely be improved – though it is a simple matter of opinion.

The first thing I taste is chamomile. It kind of overwhelms everything else.
