I feel that Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Extra Wellness Tea is one of the best packaged teas available. It is good quality and affordable, at about $3.00 per box. The tea contains chamomile, tilia estrella, and valerian, which are all included to produce that calming and relaxing effect. As soon as the box of tea bags are opened, the rich wholesome smells of the herbs hit you in the face. There is no doubt that the herbs are authentic. There are no artificial flavorings or preservatives. This product is caffeine free and gluten free.
The box of tea is carefully wrapped to help preserve the freshness. There are 20 bags in each box. The bags are stacked within the box and joined together in groups of two. The bags are not individually wrapped. You can’t help but admire the graphic of the cute Teddy bear on the box cover, dressed in night clothes.
I steep 2 bags at a time to get a stronger brew and to fall asleep quicker. The tea taste very nice, when sweetened with honey instead of cane sugar. Don’t expect to fall asleep right away, as this product works gradually. I usually begin to feel mellow about 30 minutes after drinking the tea. Upon waking up, this product doesn’t leave you with that groggy, hangover feeling that results from taking sleeping pills.
I enjoy a cup of Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Extra Wellness Tea after a hard, stressful day, or when it is close to my bedtime. Celestial Seasonings offers a regular version of Sleepytime tea as well, but it does not contain valerian. Sleepytime tea is also available in vanilla and decaf lemon jasmine green tea flavors.
Another thing that I like about these teabags is that they are environmentally friendly. Celestial Seasonings does not use strings, tags, or staples in the teabags. This results in less waste in our landfills. The box packaging is composed of 100% recycled paperboard. It is very good to know that this product is made by an ethical and environmentally conscious company.
