Are you having trouble nodding off? Read on to discover The Tea Makers of London’s Top 5 Teas To Aid Sleep

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea is known to contain high levels of antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties which are useful in the treatment of menstrual cramps, gastrointestinal and respiratory tract issues. This delightfully floral tea dates back to the Ancient Greeks, Romans & Egyptians where it was drunk to aid indigestion and to help sooth stomach cramps. Most famously, this completely caffeine-free tea is used to help treat stress and anxiety making it an ideal bedtime brew.

Our two-star great taste award-winning calming chamomile tea is a delightfully relaxing drink best enjoyed in the evening after a meal. Packed with premium golden chamomile blossoms, this calming herbal blend will ease you into its soothing embrace and help you reach the land of nod in no time.

We recommend a warm cup of chamomile tea 45 minutes before bed, enjoy the sweet apple and subtle floral flavours and add a dash of honey if you like!

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint tea is another ideal bedtime brew. The essential oils in peppermint tea are proven to help you relax and get a better night’s sleep. Rich in antioxidants and calming properties this soothing herbal tea can help relax your muscles, calm anxious thoughts and relieve digestive discomfort, making it easier to fall asleep and enjoy a more consistent sleep routine. Be sure to choose a herbal minty blend as peppermint green teas contain caffeine which you'll want to avoid if you are having trouble sleeping.

Our great taste award-winning peppermint tea blend is the perfect after-dinner brew. This highly aromatic single-origin herbal blend is guaranteed to help you feel refreshed, relaxed and uplifted. Enjoy a warm cup of peppermint tea an hour or so before bedtime and let its calming qualities deliver you to the land of dreams.

Organic Rooibos Tea

Being naturally caffeine free and low in tannins, Rooibos’s soothing properties relax the body, aiding in digestion making a good night’s sleep that much easier.

Rooibos is grown in a small part of South Africa and has been used for generations to cure all sorts of aliments. Popularised in Europe around 300 years ago, the rich taste and health benefits of this tasty tea make it a firm favourite around the world.

This is a great choice for those looking for a night-time brew, but also wanting to keep the flavour of black tea. Being processed in a similar way to black tea leaves, it keeps that bold, nutty and earthy flavour linked with black tea and can be served with milk, unlike many herbal teas.

Rooibos tea tastes great on its own, or you can deepen the flavour by adding your choice of milk, lemon or a drop of maple syrup. For a slightly sweeter option you can try our vanilla rooibos , which has the same calming properties, with extra vanilla flavour.

Rosebud Tea

Roses have been used in herbal medicines for hundreds of years, making it an important tonic in Traditional Chinese Medicine, easing fatigue and calming nerves. The natural, sedative properties of this delightful rose tea can help you drop off to sleep a little quicker and even improve your quality of sleep.

As a herbal blend, rose tea is high in antioxidants which have other benefits like boosting your immune system and fighting inflammation.

For a beautiful, indulgent experience brew whole rosebud tea in a glass teapot or cup and watch the buds unravel in the hot water, then enjoy the sweet, floral flavours to help send you off into a great quality sleep.

Lemongrass & Ginger Tea

Lemongrass and ginger are the ultimate combination, working together to calm nerves and settle your mind ready for sleep.

Lemongrass is known to relax muscles, inducing sleep and potentially helping you sleep for longer once you’ve dropped off, meanwhile gingers warming effects help you to feel cosy and settled before bed.

This herbal blend also has the added bonus of settling stomach aches, relieving nausea and taking the edge off sore throats, all things that could be adding to you struggling to sleep.

Brewing lemongrass and ginger tea for 3-4 minutes before sipping on a cup at bedtime, can help towards a restful nights sleep.

By adding one of these tasty herbal blends into your night-time routine, the ritual of sipping a brew, will become a game changer in getting a restful cosy night’s sleep.
