Can Tea Make You Sleep Better?

When I was approached by Tea company Teami about trying some of their products, my first thought was – not one of those detox teas that give you diarohea. I’ve seen so many people try them – including my sister, and I just don’t know if I’m down with something that flushes your system.

However, Teami have a range of different teas and after doing some exploring, my anxious stressed out self couldn’t help but be excited about the though of a tea that claims to relax you. I wake up most mornings with a light headache and aching jaw from clenching my teeth all night and I rarely sleep through without getting up in the night at least once. Could this tea be the answer to my prayers?

The Ultimate Question : Can Tea Make You Sleep Better?

So the ultimate question for me was – does the tea work? I tried it out in the handy little flask (more on that later) night after night and I have to say my results were varied. When I slept, I woke up refreshed, I slept more deeply and I didn’t clench my jaw . . hurrah! However, I wouldn’t say that it changed my sleeping habits. It didn’t get me to sleep any easier but when I did sleep, it was joyous. 

Just one more comment on the taste – it’s nice. Not what I expected, I mean how can a tea that tastes nice benefit you? I added a dollop of honey as suggested on the packet and it was delicious.

So if you get the flask, it’s super handy as it keeps the tea super duper warm for ages and has a handy sieve that strains the tea as you drink. As I was drinking my tea before I went to bed – my nights got later as the tea just did not cool – that flask is thermal alright. I used it like a little tea pot to stew the tea, pouring it into a mug when I wanted to drink! They also do these handy little tea infusers that fit neatly into a mug!

    I am a firm believer that tea makes you sleep better! I used to have all sorts of problems sleeping, then I got into the habit of having herbal teas before bed and now I have hardly any problems drifting off to sleep! Just don’t drink tea too last minute before you sleep otherwise…. *full bladder*. Because nothing sucks more than having your sleep pattern disturbed and having to get out of your cosy bed! x

      It totally does! I hope you give it a try! If you do let me know how you find it!

    I love drinking certain teas before bed! But to be honest I have no idea whether they affect me at all, sometimes I have a nice deep sleep and wake up refreshed and sometimes I wake up more tired than ever!

      Really? Thats interesting! I do think though that sometimes things like the weather can really affect your sleep pattern regardless of the tea or anything you have drunk!

    This sounds interesting! I actually just scheduled a post about tips I use to sleep, but nothing makes me feel refreshed in the morning or gives me a sleeper deeper and these are definitely things I’d like to happen, I always wake up feeling eurgh, after A: not getting sleep for hours or B: waking up multiple times! I may just have to take a look around the site!

      I know totally, I’m always up to go to the toilet in the night at least once! Absolute nightmare!

    I’ve never really gotten into the whole idea of drinking soothing teas before bed but maybe I should! This one sound fab and I love the concept of the flask (especially if you’re anything like me and forget you’ve made a cup of tea just as soon as you’ve made it…) x

    • 16th April 2016 / 6:43 pm

      I always have the tea it helps me so much!!!

  6. 12th April 2016 / 9:16 pm

    Oh this looks really interesting! I’m a very anxious person and sleeping is a real problem for me. I certainly can’t remember the last time I woke up feeling refreshed! So I might have to give this a go! x x

    • 16th April 2016 / 6:43 pm

      Definitely do! It really helped for me! I would totally recommend it!
