Show Description

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.

This blend is not intended for every day use, rather as an aid to help sleep when you really need to rest. Regular use can build up tolerance to the effectiveness of the herbs.

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.

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.

I bought htis tea to help me sleep thru the night, but the valarium root is very strong and overwhelming. Unforunately it didn't help my sleep either. Im not a fan of valarium and actually gag when my husband takes the pills so I was not a fan of this tea. Hopefully others like it better.

I have a sleep disorder, so a restful night has been a struggle for many years. The two times I tried taking valerian capsules, I lay awake the entire night and didn't sleep at all. A friend had me try the Extra Sleepy Bear, and when I saw it contains valerian, I was expecting the worst. Thankfully, I was wrong because I had a good night. I love the taste and pleasant sweetness. I placed an order for more and have continued drinking it in the evening. Excellent tea!

A blind buy of a pound. Shipping was quick. Price was right. Quality of tea blend was high. Naturally sweet in just the right amounts. Smells beautiful when dry in my jar, as well as brewed. Looks pretty. Love love love the way it smells actually. It works. I doubted that it would have any effect on me, but it actually works. When I finally do fall asleep, I sleep well and wake up rested.

Extra Sleepy Bear is my most favorite tea. I drink it every morning actually to help start my day in a relaxed state of mind. It creates the perfect state of relaxation. It also has a really good taste, just the perfect amount of sweetness and flavor. I love this tea and I am so happy I found it through the NM tea co.

I ran out of a different "Sleep Tea" from another company.....thankfully so after I received this amazing "Extra Sleepy Bear". There is no comparison. The scent is beautiful and strong, the taste is wonderful and the effects work every time. Not to mention the extremely quick shipping! I'm a fan of New Mexico Tea Company!

This tea works like whoa. I've tried valerian in capsule form before and it didn't help me get sleepy, just made me feel weird and dissociated. But pretty much immediately after I drink a cup of this tea my eyes get heavy and I get that pleasant sleepy feeling I remember as a child, and within an hour all I want to do is drift off to sleep. Not only that, the sleep I get is crazy deep and I wake up feeling very refreshed. If you have a hard time sleeping, this might be just what you need. It definitely is for me; I won't be without it.
