The simple act of putting the kettle on and brewing a soothing sleep tea helps you to relax, unwind and let off steam. At T2 we have quite a selection of blissful brews ready to send you quietly off to the land of nod.
Sshhhhh! One sip of our sleep aid herbal teas and that 'do not disturb' sign is up! But if anyone should dare to disturb your heavenly slumber at least we have an enticing range of brew-tea-ful herbal tisanes to help send you quietly back to blissful oblivion.
But let's start with a calming day-time tea, one which helps you with reducing stress so that you have improved sleep quality. A popular blend in our Wellness range, The Quiet Mind goes about its daily business with the aid of adaptogenic herbs in delicious infusions. This herbal tisane will help to settle an overactive mind and calm the farm so you can fall asleep that night without all your day-time stresses resurfacing.
Come bedtime and you have a choice of tasty teas to tempt you. Ranked number one in the sleepytime tea popularity contest is our Sleep Tight Loose Leaf Tisane. Also available in tea bags, Sleep Tight tucks you in at night with an aromatic fix of lemon balm, lavender, jasmine and rose.
At T2, you can purchase these two ultimate calming teas in a duo pack, available in our Wellness collection.
You can also add Just Chamomile into your sleepy tea rotation, for its snooze-alicious blend of chamomile flowers promises the best deep and dreamy sleep.
The best sleep teas have a blend of herbs recognised for their natural sedative properties like chamomile, valerian root, lavender, lemon balm, passion flower, rose petals and hops to encourage restful sleep. These herbal tisanes are caffeine free to gently and oh-so-softly prod you towards the land of nod without a care in the world.
Studies have shown that green tea may be effective in reducing stress which in turn might help you to achieve more restful sleep.
Green tea is also bursting with naturally healthy tea ingredients so drinking a daily cup of blooming good green tea is a great way to stay well. But green tea does also contain a small amount of caffeine – not as much as black tea, mind you. Go ahead and indulge in your tealicious daily greens in a cup but perhaps choose another herbal sleep tea as your fave bedtime tea if you are a little reactive to caffeine.
All our teas and tisanes have brewing guidelines, so follow the directions on the pack to make the perfect herbal sleep tea as part of your bedtime routine. We’ll tell you how long to brew your loose leaf tea or tea bag, and at what temperature - so don't worry, it’s easy.
T2 brewing guides also give great tips on which teas like to perform solo and which will happily team up with a little milk or honey. We’ll also suggest which teas can multi-task as a scrumptious hot brew and as a refreshing iced tea to cool you down on hot summer nights.
A relaxing cup of chamomile tea is well recognised for its stress-reducing, restful qualities. Try a pot of Just Chamomile to unwind with the soft and fragrant infusion of golden chamomile flowers. This super relaxing sensory experience will help you to slowly drift off…
Chamomile is also a key player in our Sweet Dreams and Nighty Night Loose Leaf Herbal Tisanes. These soft and soothing brews combine gentle infusions of various heavenly herbs such as peppermint, lemon balm, strawberry leaves, St John’s Wort, sweet blackberry leaves, heather flowers, lavender, rose petals and more.
Incorporating a bedtime tea in your night time routine is a lovely way to unwind and prepare for sleep. What better way to say 'nighty night' than with a cup of exactly that? Our Nighty Night herbal sleep tea will lull you with its gentle warmth, beautiful bouquet, aromatic scent and tantalising taste.
The best sleep teas like The Dreamer, Sleep Tight and Sweet Dreams encourage deep sleep by whispering in your ear with their delicately sweet flavours. Behind the scenes their powerful, sleep-inducing herbs get to work reducing all of your stress, calming your overactive mind and helping you to unwind, relax and feel that luxuriously drowsy state before drifting off to sleep.
So, is it good to drink tea before bed? Absolutely! Perhaps keep your invigorating black teas for the morning, where a delicious breakfast tea will get you going, but herbal sleep teas are certainly the ideal night time brew.
