There are far better chamomile blends out there, but Sleepytime is an old classic. I can’t help but turn to it when nothing else works, and if nothing else, the scent lulls me to sleep.

Ooh yummy. The perfect bedtime tea, especially for those insomniac nights where you just can’t sleep. Sometimes I can’t even finish the cup because I fall asleep. :)

I like this tea as well and now that I can buy it in K-Cup format it is even better!

It does help with sleeping but still think Davids Tea Mother’s Little Helper might be a bit better at that.

What can I say? It’s Sleepytime. This was the first non-sweet tea I drank (at a friend’s house, served by her hippie mom) and it has stuck with me all these years. The chamomile and spearmint flavors are most pronounced, but like other people have said, it’s not so much the flavor, it’s the comfort-food aspect of it. If I really want tea to comfort me, this is what I go for. I actually have a box at home and a box at work—the only tea I do that with.

I love this tea. It is the perfect before bed blend. I’m a big sucker for mint and this is the perfect fix without being too strong. As the other reviewers have been saying, it’s ideal for winding down, especially if you’re sipping it in bed while reading a book.

Randomly saw this in my pantry and brewed some up. To me, the taste is very close to watered-down Throat Coat while chewing Double Mint gum. It’s not a “bad” taste profile…but I wouldn’t consider drinking it every night to go to sleep. Plus, the flavors only come out if you steep the bag more than 10 minutes. Not a big fan of this whole “waiting” thing.

Upside though: there’s a bear on the packaging.

Used to have this every night before bed. It’s a bit bland for me, but it was a nice night-time tea fix.

A very nice blend of chamomile, spearmint and lemon grass that I find enjoyable and this is coming from a person who is not that fond of flavored teas. Personally I think it is the spearmint that sets it apart or at least for me as I heavily lean toward sweeter spearmint over its stronger peppermint counterpart. The chamomile is a nice herb to help unwind with closer to bed time and the lemon grass and spearmint add some nice flavor and extra sweetness as a sugar-free alternative to honey.

Boring and bland. Rather have a rooibos before bed.
