      I tried a sampler sized bag of this tea and really enjoyed it

    • Kaitlyn Elvin


      Wasn't really my cup of tea (heh). I thought it kind of tasted and smelled like feet. Not a whole lot, but enough for me to give the rest of my sample bag away.

      i have a hard time sleeping due to anxiety, but this tea has me falling asleep in less than 20 minutes!

      This is perfect for the stress of quarantine keeping me from falling asleep.

      The taste takes some getting used to but it doesn't fail to help me sleep.

      I will preface this review by stating that I take a nightly prescription medication, which I believe definitely affected my experience with this tea. I don't really mind the medicinal taste of this tea and rather quite enjoyed it, but it ended up making me feel tired without making me super sleepy. However, once I fell asleep, I was plagued by these feverish visions that washed over me every time I woke up in the middle of the night, which is completely uncharacteristic of my sleep pattern. I also experienced my first instance of sleep paralysis in which I tried calling out for my partner in fear but was only able to let out a squeak or two, unable to wake him up to comfort me. I was wholly disturbed by my experience with this tea and will refrain from drinking it again. My word of advice is to be extremely cautious when taking literally any other medication or substance that goes into effect while drinking this tea.

      Bold Valerian smell is very stinky and you better like chamomile. There is so much going on in this Tea; lavender, chamomile, spearmint, valerian. all that said it does seem to relax, help you drift off, not sure if it is a placebo effect, if it would work with any decaf tea. But the history of Valerian, who am I to argue.

    • Han


      I didn't like this, it was overly medicinal which i think came from the valerian. I love "sleepy" teas and this was a huge disappointment. Dumped out my cup.

      A great soothing evening tea with chamomile flowers. Hint of lavender, lemon and spearmint. One of my top 5 favorites

    • Anita Blake


      A MUST-HAVE if you have problems dropping off to sleep. It'll calm the mind and ease you right off

    • Cassandra Guild


      I thought this tea was nice, but I'm not sure it made me sleepy. I think it's comparable to other sleepy-time or calming teas. I enjoyed the lavender flavor.

    • Sky Kutil


      A really enjoyable sleepy time tea. Has a very woodsy initial flavor with hints of lemon and lavender.

    • Contessa Richter


      I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Lavender and cherry is very hit and miss for me. I cold steeped this one while I was at work and it did its job that night!

    • Katherine Moore


      This tea is delicious and soothing and it does a good job of masking the valarian root flavor. However, I was disappointed because I only got one little bit of cherry in my sampler pack. It was a really good bit of cherry.

      This is a good nighttime tea. The herbs, particularly the Valerian, are very relaxing in the evening. The chamomile flavor is more mild than Sleeepytime blends and this tastes a lot better.

    • Galatea D


      I'm not a lover of chamomile or mint, but the valerian in this is a selling point. It is much better than Sleepy Time tea, with more spearmint notes.

    • Red Wolfe


      The slight taste of spearmint brings this all together. It really helps me relax.

    • Mocha Cocoa


      Very pleasant tea. So delicious. Its ingredient helps sooth my mind

    • A. Wood


      Yummy tea. Totally healthy and beneficial for your body

      A must have! I probably have more 40 winks in my house than any other tea.

    • Bailey Green


      I am in LOVE with this! It reminds me of a tea I've had before. But its much better. My new nightly tea!

      A very flavourful tea. Very good for reading or chilling after a busy work day. Add a little of honey during the cold months and it helps with a sore throat.

      This tea, despite all of it's fancy ingredients, tastes almost exactly like the Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime tea, which I honestly view as an accomplishment. It's soothing and has none of the offensive flavor valerian has on it's own.

      This tea is ok. There is some taste in it that I am not a fan of, but I can't tell what it is

    • Krista S


      A subtle yet soothing way to end a day. It really does help me get to sleep. 😌😴

    • Annie Katharine


      I love a good nighttime tea and this one joins the ranks at the top of my list.

      It’s not my go to evening cuppa, but if I need to unwind and get in bedtime mode, this is a good choice.

    • Max Sugerman


      This was a really interesting blend. It was very floral but not overpowering

    • Ashleigh Baan


      This tea is very calming and is the perfect thing to drink before bedtime.
