Sleepytime is a ‘coffee substitute’ made from chamomile and valerian root. it contains no caffeine, giving you the benefits of the herbs without the buzz or withdrawal effects. Sleepytime tastes delicious and can be used as a beverage replacement for coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks etc. we recommend using 1-2 teaspoons per mug and brewing for 3-5 minutes in hot (not boiling) water. discover more about sleepytime here! Now you can enjoy them with our new all-natural flavours! We’ve grown tired of people asking us if we could make an all-natural version of our best-selling teas and beverages without artificial flavours, preservatives, soy or GMOs. so instead of continuing to answer them, we decided the best way was to do what they’ve been asking for! It took us three years of research and development but we’re finally ready with products that are better-tasting than our originals (in fact, all our testers preferred them) and use only natural ingredients.

Sleepytime Originals

We like to call these new products ‘sleepytime original’ because aside from switching out artificial flavours with natural ones (and taking out some other minor ingredients), they are exactly the same as our old formulas. dandelion root has also been changed to organic dandelion leaf since it has none of the bitter aftertaste dandelion roots can sometimes have. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to replace all your unhealthy drinks and food items with healthy, tasty replacements then take a look at our new store!

We predict that this news will be met with raised eyebrows, spilt coffee and perhaps a little anger. There are several claims in the article that deserve some investigation. For example, is sleepy tea really caffeine-free? Is it healthier than coffee? Does it taste better? How about dandelion root vs leaf? What exactly has changed about the formula between old and new sleepytime products?

Sleepy tea really ‘coffee without the buzz or not

Yes, although you might have to adjust your expectations of what a herbal beverage can do. Both valerian root and chamomile have sedative effects on humans, although they are thought to work through different mechanisms. Modern research into their effect on sleep quality is lacking, but preliminary research suggests that they may be beneficial in treating insomnia. Valerian is also thought to improve mood and relieve stress without the side effects of other sedatives like benzodiazepines, which can lead to physical dependence with long term use.

There are, however, plenty of reasons you might want to keep drinking coffee in your life. ‘Coffee without the buzz’ doesn’t mean healthy, or better for you than tea – it just means that it won’t make you feel like touching the sky when you’re tired (or switch into overdrive when your energy dips).

Sleepy tea compare nutritionally to coffee

Although there are many differences between chamomile and coffee, including their chemical composition and effects on the body, there is one thing that they do share: caffeine. but not all of us drink coffee for its caffeine content – some drink their daily cup to get a different set of chemicals like polyphenols and antioxidants.

So where does sleepy tea fit in? Well, we know from their website that it contains chamomile and valerian root (the other ingredients don’t matter much because the doses are so low). about 20 mg of caffeine per 8 fluid ounces (240ml), which is pretty similar to a small mug of brewed coffee. The same goes for the antioxidant content: both drinks score around 48 µmoleTE/240ml.
