Child's Pose tea in a calming display

Teas for Calm Days and Restful Nights

Posted by Nicholas M. on

Despite the darkened winter hours, thankfully soon to be banished by the promise of spring, the hustle and bustle of modern life often comes with a dose of sleeplessness that can really bring you down -- both physically and emotionally.

Perhaps it is so appropriate, then, that the perfect cup of tea might come to the rescue, alleviating life's anxieties and enhancing a sense of calm and comfort. As British writer Jonathan Stroud once remarked, "Making tea is a ritual that stops the world from falling in on you."

While making tea is half of the ceremony that might invite a good night's sleep, the blissful act of drinking the perfect cup of tea is likely even more enjoyable.

Thankfully, we've got you covered with an absolute wealth of options to help you drift off to a restful slumber. Check out some of our best-selling blends below!

  • Child's Pose: Infused with organic Krishna Tulsi, roses, Pacific Northwest peppermint, lavender blossoms, natural tangerine essential oil and vanilla flavor extract, our Child's Pose blend is extremely popular with the Magic Hour faithful (racking up a nearly perfect rating from almost 200 reviews). Lavender, as Tom Ryan of noted, has been used as an herbal remedy since the Roman empire, and has long been associated with improved sleep and lessened fatigue.
  • Lucid Dreams: Containing organic Krishna Tulsi, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, orange peel, peppercorns and cloves -- as well as natural coconut and cinnamon flavor extracts -- this citrus and spice blend gestures towards the warm and cozy feeling of being wrapped up in a comforter or fleece throw. As for proper preparation for a night-time tea ritual, our notes suggest to "Steep as a golden milk latte or pour over ice and savor the intoxicating flavors of cinnamon, vanilla and coconut as the herbs soothe your nerves and calm your mind."
  • Aquamarine Dream: Featuring organic apple, chamomile flower, lemongrass, ashwagandha, lemon myrtle, passion flower, skullcap, linden, pea flower, cornflower petal and natural pineapple and blueberry flavor extracts, this herbal potion is beautifully colorful and rejuvenative. Designed specifically to calm troubled nerves and to help one achieve a restful sleep, one enthusiastic reviewer described this blend as simply "beautiful! With the first sip, you really taste the blueberry flavor. It tastes like you are drinking blueberry pie ala mode. It’s strong and sweet. A few sips later and after it cools you get the floral, herbal notes. I picked up a citrus note probably from the lemon verbena or the pineapple. This tea is very drinkable and Moorish, it’s really yummy. It’s a great relaxing and sleepy-time tea. I love it, it’s delicious!"

It should be noted that all of the above blends are caffeine-free, and if you'd like to sample these and other blends specifically designed to enhance your sleep, digestion, and immunity, there's always the convenience of our Herbal Magic Sampler Box. A variety of seven different crafted blends (including the trio above, plus Mantra Mint, Queen of the South, Queen of the Tropics, and Ruby Moon) is priced at an affordable $65 -- and in return, you receive enough ingredients to pour up to 105 cups of tea.

There's nothing quite like settling in for the evening with a good book, your favorite TV show, a classic film, a bedtime snack, and of course, the perfect cup of tea. People are creatures of habit, for better or for worse, and we're here to make sure that the tea ritual -- at least our part in it -- is as enjoyable as it possibly can be.
