As a woman who is a full-time employee, a wife, mother and grandmother, life can get pretty hectic. You run and run all day long and sometimes into the evening too. You are exhausted and all you really want is a good nights sleep. Sound familiar? So you try to get to bed fairly early but just can’t seem to wind down. You are still thinking of all those chores on your to do list, what to make for dinner tomorrow and what you are going to wear to work in the morning. Has this happened to you? Well, it happens to me all the time. I just can’t seem to relax and get to sleep.
Now for some good news. I am not alone. You are not alone. Lots and lots of people, both men and woman all over the world have trouble sleeping at some time or another. Hain Celestial realized that over 3 million Canadian’s have trouble getting a good night’s sleep. That is why they created a special caffeine-free blend of tea that can help you relax before bed.
Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea
Sleepytime Tea is not a new product in fact it is quite the opposite. Any idea how long Sleepytime Tea has been aiding people to relax before bed? Well, here is the answer.
Celestial Seasoning was actually founded back in 1969 by a group of entrepreneurs that wanted to create and share flavourful and all natural teas. They believed that it would help people live healthier lives. The company has grown a lot and today they are one of the largest specialty tea manufacturers in North America. They now offer over 35 different varieties of all-natural teas. They now serve more than 1.6 billion cups of tea per year. That is a whole lot of tea! So what makes Celestial Seasonings tea so different from other teas on the market today? Celestial Seasonings teas are made from the highest quality herbs, spices and fruit. There are more than 100 varieties of these ingredients and they come from more than 35 different countries. With so many different blends there really is a tea for everyone. Celestial Seasonings is also very environmentally conscious. They pay attention to everything from the manufacturing process, packaging and country-wide recycling programs. I noticed that the packaging is very minimal. Just a 100% recyclable cardboard box and a paper lining pouch to keep the tea fresh. I also noticed that there was no strings, staples or tags on the actual tea bags. These are the little things that most of us would never think about, but can make such a difference. If you are interested in learning more about Celestial Seasoning tea ingredients you can look them up here. This handy chart will tell you where it is from, what product it can be found in as well as the benefits.
I can’t believe that Sleepytime Tea is almost as old as I am and I have never tried it before. Very sad indeed. Well, as they say there is no time like the present. So I will be right back. Time to open the Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea and give it a go.

Ok, I am back with a steamy cup of Sleepytime Herbal Tea. I have to tell you it smells amazing! As soon as I opened the box I could smell the Lemon Grass and Spearmint. Now for how it tastes. Awwh, warm and cozy. The flavours are very well blended. It has a very balanced flavour and no one ingredient stand out stronger than the other. It is really nice and I can see why they call it Sleepytime. It has a calming aroma and since it is completely caffeine-free it is perfect to have before bed.
Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea is a herbal tea that contains all-natural ingredients and flavours. There is no artificial colours or preservatives and as mentioned before it is caffeine-free. This night-time herbal tea contains chamomile, spearmint, lemon grass, tilia flowers, blackberry leaves, orange blossoms, hawthorn and rosebuds. With all these ingredients you would think it would have a very flowery flavour but I did not find that at all. Out of curiosity I visited the Hain Celestial Canada website and looked up some of these ingredients. (I love that everything you ever wanted to know is right there for you) Most of the ingredients in the Sleepytime Tea actually aid in good digestion. While on their website I also noticed that they offer other teas that can actually help relieve a sore throat, cold or flu symptoms. I had no idea that quality teas could be so powerful in aiding us with our daily health.
After trying Sleepytime, I can understand how it has become Canada’s #1 herbal tea. It is really good and does make me feel more relaxed. Definitely better than having regular caffeinated tea or even worse coffee. I like having something warm to drink in the evening and sometimes make myself a coffee. Big mistake. I am up all night tossing and turning and sometimes even suffer from heartburn. This Sleepytime tea is sure to become my new favourite night-time drink. Warm bath, fuzzy blanket and a nice cup of Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea. Yeh that’s the ticket to a good night’s sleep. Sweet Dreams Everyone!
