Goodnight Irene – Use coupon code “BETTERSLEEP” at checkout for 20% off

Goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams when I’m fast asleep from this nighttime tea. The Goodnight Irene tea contains valerian root, an herbal ingredient that encourages a more restful sleep. The valerian root may help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. Drinking this tea half an hour before resting your head on the pillow can help settle your nervous system and battle restlessness. This is a great tea for anyone with a ragweed allergy who can’t drink the popular sleepy chamomile tea. 

Chamomile

This well-known tea has relaxing qualities that are perfect for unwinding after a long day and settling into bed with a good book. Chamomile is a daisy-like plant that has been used to treat fevers, inflammation, insomnia, and general stress. Chamomile has a taste that resembles apple and literally translates to “earth apple” due to both its smell and flavours. Make sure to steer clear of this tea if you have a ragweed allergy.

Tibetan Herbal Chai – CURRENTLY 15% OFF

This tea is ideal for settling your digestive system so that your body and mind are both prepared for dozing off. The herbal version of Tibetan Chai tea is caffeine-free and rich in spices that are both flavourful and helpful for soothing an irritated stomach. This blend contains chamomile, as well as ginger, hibiscus, lemon balm, cinnamon and other comforting ingredients.   

Green Tea Decaf

This green tea does not compromise its flavours in the process of decaffeination. This tea is both a mellow and aromatic traditional loose-leaf tea and fan-favourite from China. If green tea is your cup of tea, then don’t miss out on your favourite to avoid the boost of caffeine. Try this decaf option before bed!

Can Tea Really Help You Rest Easy?

Answering this question means answering the question around what is in the teas you are drinking. A few herbs, flowers, and plants have been capable of promoting a better sleep and a few of these include: chamomile, valerian, lavender, lemon balm, St.John’s Wort, and peppermint. If you are a caffeine lover, simply cut down on the consumption of these stimulants 4-6 hours before bed. Beverages and food that fall into this category include coffee, soda, chocolate, and even some caffeinated teas. Enjoy a relaxing herbal cup while you are unwinding and reimagine your bedtime routine with your new favourite bedtime teas.
