a very definite five stars!

Welcome to heaven, Judy.
Yes, you have arrived.
You are asleep now, thanks to Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime tea.
But I don’t remember going to sleep.
My point exactly. That’s why I call it heaven.
But who are you?
I am Sleepytime Judy and I am asleep.

What welcome relief, knowing there is a pleasant, calming antidote to the stresses of a relentlessly busy mind that sometimes refuses to shut down. Just walk to the kitchen, put the kettle on, pull out a Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime teabag, place in a favorite cup–mine is a slender version of a Blue Willow cup, pour on water at just the boiling point, and wait for the tea to steep.

Meanwhile, pick up the box–how many times now–and read the the words.
“100% Natural Herb Tea, Caffeine Free.”
“a comforting blend of chamomile and spearmint creates a lullaby of tender flavor to soothe your senses…”
“…it lets you curl up under a quilt of flavor and quiet the tensions of your world…”
‘The sweetest way I think of you is when the day is done.’ Emily Dickinson
Ingredients: Chamomile, spearmint, lemon grass, tilia flowers, blackberry leaves, orange blossoms, hawthorn berries, and rosebuds.

But before I take my cup back to bed, I look at the last panel of the box. There’s papa bear asleep in his cozy chair in front of the fire, Mama is carrying the baby and holding the hand of another, taking them to bed. Through an open door one can see two little bears already asleep in their bed. All in all, a cozy room of happiness and warmth and the promise of sleep.

I sip my cup of Sleepytime tea quickly, almost gulping. I have learned that if I sip my usual slow sipping, I will fall asleep only halfway finished. That is how efficacious the tea… really… is…..

The classic!

Sleepytime is a popular tea that has been around a long time due to its high quality. The natural flavors and ingredients have made it a required tea for the cupboard of persons interested in healthy eating for the last 30 years! The predominant flavors are of chamomile and spearmint–but the additional ingredients–including rose buds–create a satisfying, complex blend that is very tasty and soothing. Not only is Sleepytime caffeine-free but it contains herbs that are mildly relaxing and healing for the stomach. Drink this lovely tea before bed either with or without honey.

Sleepytime contains chamomile, spearmint, lemongrass, tilia flowers, blackberry leaves, orange blossoms, hawthorne berries and rosebuds. The healing qualities of some the herbs in Sleepytime are listed below, however please note that there is insufficient quantities of each herb to have anything more than a very mild effect. Blackberry leaves, which are soothing to the stomach, contain tannins which provides a tea-like base for the flowery flavors of chamomile and rosebuds. Spearmint is one of the milder mints and is also useful to soothe tummy ache. Chamomile is a wonderful herb that has a relaxing effect; it also can be used to soothe tummy aches, headache, menstrual cramps and is a mild anti-fungal.

Celestial Seasonings gets extra points for their packaging: they utilize 100% natural recycled paperboard in their boxes and they don’t package each tea bag individually. Instead they use a system of a waxed paper bag inside the box that stays shut when you fold it. It keeps the bags fresh and utilizes less packaging than individually wrapping each bag. The art they use on each box is beautiful as are the quotes and information they put on every surface.

Quote from the box:

“Ultimately, the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or friendship, is conversation.” Oscar Wilde.

Soothing, calming, allows you to relax and rest.

Tea has a great flavor – almost what I’d call ‘spearmint’ flavor which is great with honey or sugar with or without cream. I drink it hot and if it does cool, it’s still good. It does help me relax and go to sleep when I’ve had a long day. My grandchildren love the flavor and we often share a pot of tea as it is perfectly safe for them. Celestial Seasoning Teas are great teas always but Sleepytime is one of their classics! I’d recommend this tea to anyone, as out of all of Celestial Seasonings teas, this is probably ranks as close to number one on my list of favorites. And I do have a lot of their tea in my pantry — my son swears I must own stock in it, LOL. If you like tea, try it, I really think you’ll be glad you did as I feel Sleepytime truly is one of their best teas. 🙂

at it’s best. I have been drinking this tea since high school and the flavor has not wavered. I’ve tried plain chamomile and it didn’t make the cut. Nothing beats a cup or two of Sleepy Time before bed as it calms the nerves and settles the tummy. What a perfect way to drift off into slumber !

My Absolute FAVORITE Evening Tea!!!

Just 1 cup in the evening caps off my day and gets me relaxed and is a permanent part of my bedtime prep. This CS Sleepytime Tea is my absolute FAVORITE evening tea ritual! I think it is the wonderful flavor of camomile plus the spearmint that adds that extra something refreshing…ahhhh…(sigh)…big yawn…I’m toddling off to sleep now…….. P.S. I also love a cup anytime I’m feeling somewhat stressed and especially whenever I need to wind down like after a long time on the computer or after stressful shopping trips. Take a cup and you’ll really be in a mellow place.

Great price on a great tea!

Tea’s are very personal and everyone has their favorites. I really enjoy this tea when relaxing, or before bed. The subtle mint flavor seems to comfort and sooth. A little sugar (I’m not a fan of honey) really makes all the flavors POP! Being a fan of this tea it was a no brainer to order it in bulk, the price at the time was great, cheaper then the grocery store (by far). The packaging was efficient and made it really easy to store.

Bedtime Ritual

I love Sleepytime tea at night while I’m laying in bed reading a book, winding down for sleep. It has a fresh, comforting flavor, and a really great scent. It is a main part of my relaxing bedtime ritual, and I make use of Amazon’s automatic re-ordering program, which saves me So Much money compared to grocery store prices. I only gave 4 stars because after about a week of drinking it every night it kind of loses it’s charm. That’s when I alternate it with Celestial’s Tension Tamer, just to keep things interesting. Great product for herbal tea lovers, and again, a much better price here than in the grocery stores.

Nice tea

I love Sleepy Time tea, I used to give it to my children, since it is caffeine free, as they grew up, it helped them warm up and fall asleep quickly.

Just a little story and a small cup of warm tea, that was the routine especially in the winter. They are all grown now but I find that they are now serving it to my grand children and it is having the save effect.

I still drink it between all the other teas I enjoy but this one is just a little more special.

A Favorite Year after Year

We make most of our tea from loose leaf in a press pot. Sleepytime is the lone exception. We’ve been drinking this tea for many years now and it still rates among our very favorites. It’s the perfect blend of camomile and mint. And you gotta love the bear.

Nite Nite…

Have used this herbal tea for sometime now…one cup before bedtime and it always helps me rest better. Love the discount for ordering the six months supply.

Very good bedtime tea or tea for car or motion sickness!

I have been purchasing and drinking this tea for years.In fact since Mo Siegel used to advertise it on TV..now that is a long time ago. It really helps calm frazzled adults as well as hyper children before bed. But what is more share worthy is the fact that it is a great tea for children that suffer from motion sickness.
Our oldest daughter used to be car sick all the time. We carried an endless supply of “baggies” for her as she would 8 out of 10 times relieve herself when commuting back and forth to school.
We discovered that this tea, given 20 minutes before the ride and every hour or so on long family trips curtailed her horrid events completely. The main ingredient is chamomile and it really helps relieve motion sickness and soothe frazzled nerves.

Flawless herbal tea

Sleepytime tea is one of those teas that can always be counted on. It’s very mellow, with a great taste and smell. Perfect for relaxing after a long day. This is the tea that all other herbal teas should be measured against.

Perfect for the Evening

Valerian and Chamomile are blended with spearmint leaves, lemon grass, hawthorn berries and orange blossoms to create a delicious tea to savor late at night before you drift off into dreams. This tea is much more effective than regular Sleepytime and I can say this because my sleep cycle has been fairly regular with much fewer nights of tossing and turning. You may also find that your mood the next day is rather mild and you feel more relaxed in general. This could be due to getting a good night’s sleep for a change or it could be that the valerian has a lasting effect. Valerian is a very effective herb if you can’t get to sleep and this tea is highly recommended for insomnia. Unlike sleeping pills, you won’t feel groggy the next morning. Blend in a little lavender or orange blossom honey to enhance this deliciously mild minty tea.

Wow, Im Addicted…But It’s Great

What a wonderful product!
I can drink it all times of the day, so obviously the original Sleepytime Tea causes no real drowsiness.

I start my day with the tea and end it with the tea.
It makes me so relaxed and it’s healthier then smoking..lol

It’s also made me a fan of sugarless tea.
Never again will I go back to sweet tea or terriable diet sodas!

Try some Sleepytime Tea if you love tea! The flavor is amazing and very smooth as well as unique. It’s great hot or cold!
You will not be dissappointed.
