Country of Origin
What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
I was so skeptical to try this tea and did not think it would help me sleep. I now drink it every night and have heavy eyelids within 5 minutes of drinking it! I love it. It does smell really weird to me....but it tastes great! Very soothing. I always fall asleep very quickly after this. My husband loves it too!
My traveling companion
I really dislike flying…the pressurized cabin and the turbulence all make for a very unpleasant experience! My saving grace has been this tea. A small double strength cup an hour before I fly makes all the miserable happenings just melt into the background.
Weird buzz feeling
For about an hour or so after drinking it I felt a weird buzz--not relaxing, but more like I might be going to be sick. It was really uncomfortable--maybe the valerian? I do take BP and arthritis meds at night, so there might have been some interaction? I did not at all like how it made me feel, and I didn't sleep better because of it, so this tea is not for me. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to buy the sampler tin. Those sampler tins are great for finding out if the tea is one your body or taste buds like!
Perfect alternative to OTC sleep aids!
I have trouble sleeping and restless leg syndrome (RLS). With RLS, sleep aids often make it worse and that is the case for me. I've tried 'sleepy time extra' tea in the past and felt it had a strange taste-- something I couldn't put my finger on but figured was the valerian. So when I saw this tea while out shopping I thought I'd give it a try despite my past experience with valerian. So far it is helping me get to sleep and the valerian isn't causing my RLS to flare up. Plus, no unpleasant aftertaste. Thankful for this tea. :)))
Helps me sleep through the night
I love this tea. I wouldn't say that it "knocks you out," but it's definitely relaxing. I tend to wake up during the night, but when I drink this tea, it helps me stay asleep -- usually through the whole night! Pleasant taste, it's lightly minty and calming.
