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! :)

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!

when’s the new one? the 23rd? i can’t wait!!!!

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

My mom gave me a couple of bags of this because apparently I need to relax. So I thought I’d try it out tonight as I can feel the stress building. It smells like sweet, mint and chamomile. I know sweet isn’t technically a smell but it is so work with me here.

I really don’t know what to think of the taste. It tastes like it has been sweetened with honey, but there is something in the tea that burns at the very back of my throat. Like the post-vomit kind of burning. And yeah, that’s fairly unpleasant. Really hope that goes away soon. As I start to swallow, if feels like the tea is going to be bitter, so I wince. But it isn’t bitter – instead I get the honey/chamomile flavor. Then the sweet as I hold the tea in my mouth. As I swallow I feel a hint of the freshness of mint. After I finish my swallow, I feel the post-vomit burn.

Okay, I’m really trying to ignore the burning feeling. And I’m either doing pretty good at ignoring or it’s fading a little as the tea cools a bit. It doesn’t feel exactly pleasant but it no longer feels like I just finished yurking. The tea taste isn’t that bad, but there’s this weird aftertaste on my tongue (which I can now feel since I’m not as distracted by the throat burning) which I believe is the stevia. I have actual no reason to believe it is the stevia though. It could be the skullcap, St. John’s wort or valerian root, all of which (like the stevia) I have never had before. But that sweet scent and mid-taste (which hits the center of my tongue – right where the aftertaste is) seems to be stevia-related so that’s what I’m going with.

And yet I’m still drinking this tea. I have no idea why. Why am I still drinking this tea? Apparently the sweetness – even with the burning and weird aftertastes and whatnot – is kind of enjoyable. Yay sweetness. But it’s really not worth the rest of this tea. Actually, even the sweet isn’t worth it if it is causing that weird feeling on my tongue. Like a thin metallic coat of paint.

Yeah, I’m not going to drink this tea anymore. I made it through two-thirds but no more. I offered the husband the last third of my tea. He was smarter than me. He took one sip, made a surprised/pleased face (I think when he had the chamomile and then sweet) and then that quickly changed to this… horrified/surprised look and he handed the cup back to me. His response, “I kind of want to vomit to get the taste out.”

I feel like I already have.

Wow. I will be staying far, far away from this!

teaplz

That is so gross. I can’t believe you made it even that far. I think after a few sips, I would have just tossed it. Brave, brave Auggy!

S

Ah, I almost bought this…sounds awful! I’m still looking for a good bedtime tea, if anyone has any recommendations. I tried the bedtime tea by Bigelow and it was sour (hibiscus…bleh).

teaplz

Shanti, try Ocean of Wisdom by Samovar or Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea! Both rooibos, but both used to perfection. CP doesn’t even taste like rooibos, and OoW has some lovely chai-type notes in it. Both are extremely calming.

takgoti

Ew. Ew. Ew. Ew. Ew.

I hate the post-vomit burn feeling.

Kitch3ntools

ive tried this tea b4 when i was having trouble sleeping…its disgusting i took 3 sips and dumped it! Auggy i think you hit every flavor note on the head with this one because i tasted almost the same thing (i added sugar to mine…didnt help)

fcmonroe

This is a brave, brave review. I’m not that brave and I’ll be avoiding this tea. (Unless someone has a fantastic experience with it.)

Janni

This is deeply disturbing. I will definitely go nowhere near it. Ack. :P

LENA

erm…no thanks. your husband is too funny.

Auggy

@Shanti, this tea is very sweet with no bitterness. And looking at the other reviews, some people liked it so maybe you wouldn’t hate it. My instinct says that if I was more used to artificial tasting sweeteners, I wouldn’t have hated this so much. Maybe. Or maybe not.

@Kitch3ntools, Yay! I’m not insane! I seriously am blaming the stevia for the nastiness this tea has.

@Lena, the hubby actually pulled some milk out of the fridge so he could get rid of the burning throat feeling. I stole a few sips and it helped!

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
Bonnie

Feel better friend! Licorice esque is a cool wordishness.

Hesper June

I hope you arise tomorrow morning feeling refreshed!

ashmanra

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.

Ugh, I still think this tastes like the original flavor of Chapstick, even with a big blob of honey. Though the honey goes well with the mint, and it protects me from that mouth-drying tingle from the stevia. (I hate stevia.) Plus, I wish they had used ginger instead of chamomile.

But I’ve discovered that if I drink it as fast as I can, I get some good effects from the valerian. It makes me start to feel very comfortable wherever I am, which is nice when I’m ready for some sleep.

I figured out the ladoo taste — it’s the spearmint and cardamom together. It’s kind of silly that I didn’t instantly point out the cardamom.

I’ve had this tea for the last three days, and I haven’t been able to sleep that well, mostly because I’m super awake after drinking this. I have some dried Valerian root that I’ll put in tisanes, and I’ve noticed that it makes me hyper. …Does anyone else have this problem? I feel like I still have the endocrine system of a child.

gmathis

Have you tried tulsi? I’ve rhapsodized about it elsewhere, but it’s the only sleepytime-mellow-out herbal that actually does what it’s supposed to for me. Doesn’t knock me out, but certainly takes the nervous edge off.

Indigobloom

I use Magnelevures. Natural Calm is the version you can get at health food stores.
Valerian makes my heart race!

Calochortus

It’s good to know that others have odd reactions to valerian — I don’t think I’ll continue using it (because it also doesn’t smell that good). I have tried tulsi — it’s definitely calming! I’m working on a few boxes of Organic India’s tulsi, and I really like the taste. I’ll check out Mangelevures — it looks like it has a good amount of Mg, too, which I’m currently lacking in my diet.

Indigobloom

Let me know what you think! I really enjoy the taste of Natural Calm but it has other effects that aren’t so desirable so Magnelevures it is haha

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?

Yuck. All I can say is yuck. A tea is a tea, so I always love it, but I would rather not drink this again. This tea was only unsatisfying and made me have a sickish feeling in the back of my throat. Yogi tea has yet to impress me…

I am actually really surprised by all the negative reviews on this! I actually really loved it, but that might be due to two things:
A) I never drink things with sweetener.
B) I grew up drinking “medicinal” flavored tea
And lastly I think that everyone else may have steeped it for the higher steep time of 10min. I only did mine for 5 because it smelled nice that way.
The flavor is quite the mix. The chamomile is front and center for me, with the lavender being kind of a side note. The mint is pretty heavy too, but I love mint. I can also taste the small contribution being made by the raspberry leaf; which helps with lady things, but I hate drinking plain.
This tea is very sweet. Which was what surprised me the most about it. I can understand that it probably tastes better this way. But it still strikes me as odd that the manufacture is choosing how much/what is in the cup by way of this. Maybe that’s just me? I think that it helped a lot. But I see that a lot of other reviewers did not like that about the tea.
This tea also has that coating-the-throat thing that the kava one did. I have no idea what ingredient they are using that is giving me that sensation, but it’s not overtly unpleasant. After sampling this and the kava I must say that neither of them is inherently “relaxing” or makes me feel sleepy beyond the usual calming effects of enjoying a nice cuppa.

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.
