Sleepy Time Tea Blend
Sleepy Time Tea Blend
Are you having trouble sleeping? The ingredients in this blend were chosen for their ability to bring calm and relaxation to the mind and body. This sweet blend is full of herbs and flowers known for helping with achieving peaceful sleep. This is a full flavored, zesty blend with strong yet sweet floral aromas and flavors of citrus. This tea is naturally caffeine free.
This blend is a favorite among my children. They like to add a little honey and lime to it before bed.
Lemon balm (Melissa) - is included to reduce stress and anxiety. Lemon balm is a great source of calm. It also lends a note of sweet citrus to the tea.
Passion flower - is a powerful tool in relaxation. It is a plant ally used historically in treating anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria.
Skullcap - is said to positively impact mood and reduce anxiety by stimulating GABA, a neurotransmitter that helps calm nerves. It was used in traditional medicine practices as a sedative and treatment for conditions like insomnia and anxiety.
Valerian Root - is a powerful herb that helps improve sleep, promote relaxation and reduce anxiety.
Hibiscus flowers - are added for it's ability to help with falling asleep. They also lend a sweet, lovely flavor to this blend.
Lavender - In a 2017 sleep study, researchers monitored sleep cycles with brain scans and found lavender increased slow-wave sleep, instrumental for slowing heartbeat and relaxing muscles. Subjects slept more soundly on a lavender night. The group also reported feeling more energetic the next morning.
Hops - the best medicinal use for hops is as a sleep aid. It is a relaxing sedative herb and is particularly effective when combined with valerian, lavender, and chamomile.
Although this tea is sweet enough that it needs nothing added to it, you could always sweeten it with a bit of raw, local honey.
Use 1 tsp per 8 ounces of hot water. Steep for 8 to 10 minutes. I like to use a tea infuser or a organic cotton tea bag to keep the loose leaf tea in. Otherwise you could always strain the herbs out once it has steeped properly. This tea is also DELICIOUS sweetened with a little honey and lime juice and then poured over ice. It is great for combating stress and anxiety.
