Well what do you know? My first added tea!
40 Winks wasn’t anywhere on the site so I had to add it. Believe me I looked. Nowhere to be found. Anyway this is one of Adagio’s wellness blends. It’s supposed to promote sleep. We shall see…
Upon cracking the package, I get a strong pungent aroma. I’m guessing that’s the valerian root. It’s listed as the first ingredient so it must be prevalent. I’m also getting an aroma of chamomile and mint, which are also both ingredients. So onto steeping.
Western Style, 212F, 5Min.
Upon drinking the first thing I notice is that the pungent valerian aroma doesn’t fully translate over. It’s definitely there, but the tea is still palatable. There’s a slight tingling sensation in the mouth that I suppose would be the mint? I can totally taste the chamomile as well. Grassy notes are apparent as well. They become more and more noticeable as tea cools. Surprisingly no sweetener is needed in this one, although some people may wish to put a bit of honey in it for medicinal value. I can’t really have honey anymore so I am grateful it does not need any sweetener to drink. I don’t know if this will put me to sleep or not (I have weird sleep patterns) but it is certainly soothing. I would totally recommend this for a last-cup-of-the-night kind of tea. It’s flavor is nothing to write home about, but it’s not horrible and who knows maybe it will help you sleep.

Update: The first cup of this did nothing to help me sleep. However I no sooner finished the resteep second cup than I felt like I was hit by a truck. The sedation effect was that sudden. My friend has nicknamed this tea “80 Winks” as not only does it take two cups to work on me, but after it did put me under, I slept for almost 14 hours! Going to try again tonight. Will keep informed.

Valerian Root always does the trick for me. I have a tea with valerian root in it (one that isn’t chamomile heavy since I don’t like the taste of chamomile), and I also just keep a bottle of valerian root in capsules to help with difficult nights.
