Sleepy Tea Herbal Blend – Natural & Calming, Loose Leaf
Our sleepy tea is something we created as a response from speaking with countless customers who struggle with sleep in one way or another, and is it any wonder that so many people do? With work pressures, caffeine, life stress which produces the stress hormone cortisol, increasing screen time and so many other factors…sleep can be hard to come by.
Ingredients: Organic chamomile flowers, dried hops, organic mucuna powder, passionflower powder, valerian powder
Produce of: Egypt, UK, India, Czech Republic & Poland
Before brewing, this sleepy tea smells like a slightly more herby chamomile tea. The flavour and aroma of this tea when brewed is very much like chamomile but with a hit of heady, herby-ness from the hops and other ingredients.
There are lots of fantastic meditation and mindfulness techniques that you can adopt into your daily routine that can be extremely helpful for improving your sleep, but we also love this sleep tea for a pre-bedtime soothing, calming drink.
The amazing ingredients of Sleepy Tea blend
The ingredients in our sleepy tea blend all may contribute to aiding sleep. Here’s how…
Our super fresh organic chamomile flowers come from Egypt. After harvesting the chamomile flowers are dried to produce the finest quality chamomile tea. Using only the finest organic flowers ensures maximum therapeutic value and maximum taste!
Better known for use in beer brewing these days, but did you know hops were brewed as tea by the ancient Greeks and Romans? When done so it makes a calming, tasty brew that pairs brilliantly with valerian.
Mucuna seeds powder hails from India and has been used traditionally in Ayurveda for thousands of years.
Significantly, contains L-Dopa and 5-HPT, which are the pre-cursors for dopamine and serotonin. These pre-cursors actually encourage and stimulate the production of these two hormones. Serotonin is commonly known as the ‘happy hormone’ as it is said to stabilise your mood. Low levels of serotonin are associated with anxiety and depression. Serotonin also plays a key role in deep and healthy sleep cycles.
Likewise, dopamine is a hormone and neurotransmitter that is responsible for reward responses, motivation and memory. The naturally occurring L-Dopa and 5-HTP in mucuna can help to stimulate the production of dopamine and serotonin.
This stunning flower has a much wider health profile and boasts a number of beneficial properties. First and foremost, passion flower is recognised for its sleep-promoting characteristics, it can act as a mild sedative by calming the mind of sleep associated anxiety and act as a muscle relaxant to further help the body prepare for, and maintain a restful sleep.
Valerian root powder, hailing from the valerian plant, is a flowering plant native to Europe and parts of Asia that blooms beautiful pink and white flowers in the summer months. Studies have shown that valerian can reduce the time it takes to fall asleep and can help improve quality of sleep. In fact a study by the Foellinge Health Center in Sweden reported that 89% of participants in a sleep study experienced improved sleep after taking valerian.
Valerian is so effective as a sleep aid because it contains linarin, a chemical that acts as a sedative by calming activity in the central nervous system. Unlike many prescription sleep aids, valerian has little to no side effects and does not trigger the groggy, drowsy effects often experienced the next morning after taking a conventional sleeping pill.
Yes valerian doesn’t smell great, but once in water it’s quite pleasant. Aside for this it is well known for aiding sleep.

1 to 2 teaspoons per cup. For best results use a tea strainer or teapot, pour in boiling water, stir well and steep for 4-5 minutes. There may be a little sediment left in the bottom of your cup and that’s to be expected due to the three powdered ingredients, it’s ok to leave this or drink it! Make sure to give the pouch a good shake before brewing.
Please note this product is meant for occasional and not continuous use.
Whilst taking passionflower and valerian is considered safe, the general recommendation is not to take them for more than 7 consecutive nights. After all, natural sleep is always better.
