Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 212°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 7 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 7 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

This tea contains herbs that have been traditionally known to have a calming effects on the body and mind to induce sleep. Drink 1 cup about an hour before bedtime. Can be drunk with milk if you like such things.

If you are interested in this same blend but without the valerian and hops try our starlight sleep blend.

Extra Info:

Valerian is most often used as an alternative medicine for insomnia in place of hypnotic drugs. It is also sometimes used as an alternative for sedatives, such as benzodiazepines, in the treatment of certain anxiety disorders.

Hops are also used in herbal medicine in a way similar to valerian, as a treatment for anxiety, restlessness, and insomnia. A pillow filled with hops is a popular folk remedy for sleeplessness, and animal research has shown a sedative effect.

Koalas are not bears... but this guy was too cute not to use on the label. And somehow "Extra Sleepy Arboreal Herbivorous Marsupial" does not have the same ring to it!

I ordered this tea to help me get a deeper sleep. I tried it the night I got it and slept amazingly. Now I drink it whenever I have a bad day to help with anxiety and whenever I need a deeper sleep. Works great for both. I get sleepy and relaxed and fall asleep almost immediately after drinking it. Definitely going to keep ordering this.

Does what it is supposed to. Not so much a "knock you out" tea as a "Wow, I slept better." tea. Pleasant yellow - green cup. Complex flavor - a little tiny bit of a pleasant "medicine" aftertaste. Smells great - easy to drink and works well. A great sleep aid.

Yumm :) I love this tea with a little bit of agave and almond milk. I wouldn't say that it makes me sleepy but once I fall asleep I stay in a really deep sleep all night.


No more insomnia

I suffer with insomnia. I will go to sleep and wake up about 2, 3 or 4 in the am. Then after trying everything to get back to sleep, when I do, it's time for me to wake up. Needless to say that I am tired all of the imd because of it. I received this tea as a sampler with my last order. I drink a cup just about every night and not only do I go to sleep but I stay sleep throughout the night. This tea does not put you to sleep but it does help with your body relaxing enough to stay sleep and it's light so it doesn't need a lot of sweetener.
