Something we always get asked is 'what teas are good for sleep?' or 'what would you recommend for me to drink so I get good quality sleep?' or 'does tea help you sleep?'. So, we thought we'd share out top tips with you!
Tea is the perfect way to unwind, it’s warming and also forces you to take a moment to stop. Especially with loose leaf tea, brewing it can be an act of self care and mindfulness - taking the time to watch the leaves brew and the tea colour change and then sip the tea slowly, it’s a moment for relaxation.
Our teas are all blends, so we like to really focus on the ingredients, and these are the ingredients we keep in mind when creating a night time tea.
Not only do chamomile flowers help relax your nerves, but they also help relax your muscles! Being completely caffeine-free this herb is perfect before bed.
Lavender is a well-known sleep tonic, not just because of it's soothing properties but the aroma of lavender helps get you relaxed as part of your bedtime routine!
Both the flower & the root of this plant have been used for centuries to fight insomnia due to its ability to soothe & relax. It is naturally a mild sedative so great for helping with anxiety symptoms.
We have a variety of teas with relaxing ingredients - Chamomile is a real winner! A lot of people say that it can be an acquired taste, but our range is so flavourful and varied, you'll be sure to find a favourite in there!
