The Best Tea For Sleep

In the wired 24/7 world in which we now live it is unsurprising we are frequently asked what the best tea is for sleep.

Much like a brisk walk in the fresh air or a glass of wine, we believe that enjoying exceptional tea should be a regular if not daily pleasure because preparing and drinking tea is a calming activity in and of itself. However, the soporific effects of some sleepy teas obviously go much further than simple calming.

Sleepy, or bed-time teas, are of course not really not teas at all, but caffeine-free, herbal infusions or tisanes. We have a number of these in our range, including Chamomile, Rooibos and Peppermint but our number one go-to for a decent kip is our functional Dream On blend.

Packed with ingredients known to have either a sedative effect or relax the body, our Dream On blend has garnered a loyal following:

Honeybush

The soothing qualities of honeybush are believed to help relieve depression, anxiety, and have even been used as a treatment for colicky infants.

Chamomile

Chamomile has been used for centuries to treat insomnia, stress, anxiety, and upset stomachs. 

Lavender

Lavender in tea reduces stress and anxiety and might have stronger effects in women than men according to some studies.

Lemon Balm

A member of the mint family, lemon balm has a minty yet lemony taste. It is believed to interact with the GABA receptors in your brain, the activation of which reduces stress and aid sleep. For best results, it is advised lemon balm should be combined with other herbs, as found in our Dream On blend.

Rose Petals

Research published in the Iranian Journal of Basic Medical Sciences found that rose tea works in the nervous system to produce a mild hypnotic effect and can help to induce sleep in a way comparable to medications such as Valium.

Not only is this blend functional, it is also well-balanced delicious and highly addictive - why not try it for yourself and get a great night's sleep while doing so?
