Sleep Tea: The Best Tea to Sip in Your Comfortable Bed
There are few joys better in this life than having a hot, relaxing cup of tea before bed. It puts you in the mood for sleep, comforts you, and can even have some fun medicinal properties that enrich your life on the most comfortable bed.
It’s with that in mind that we’ve come up with this handy guide to the best before-sleep teas. Now you can pair Nectar’s most comfortable bed with the most delicious tea that suits your taste and sleep style. So grab a book, boil some water, and plop down on our most comfortable bed, because here’s all you’ll ever need to know about herbal teas.
While the taste can be kind of strong, and not for everyone, valerian root is a super effective, powerful relaxant. The best thing about it? It’s totally natural. Valerian root works by activiting phytochemicals in your brain, letting your body know that it’s time to curl up on that most comfortable bed and go to sleep.
Chamomile is a personal favorite of mine. It always works for maximum relaxation without the feeling of grogginess in the morning that can be associated with many sleep-aid pills. Not only that, chamomile has a number of other useful properties. It’s chocked full of antioxidants, can reduce cholesterol, and help with inflammation. All that, and it tastes great too. This do-all tea is the equivelent of a Nectar mattress. It doesn’t cost much, and it does a great job no matter what ailes you.
This is a tasty tea that has a name that leaves you thinking about chapped lips. Amazingly, that’s about the one thing that this cure-all doesn’t do. Lemon balm reduces stress, helps with anxiety, indigestion, and has been reported to help with cold sores. While I can’t verify that last one, I can say that this tea also tastes great and pairs well with a book while you’re chilling on your most comfortable bed.
If you still haven’t found your favorite, don’t fret! We will be deep diving into more of these in future posts on the Nectar blog. As always, the right tea is the one that works best for you. Just like a Nectar. Our memory foam is designed for you to be supported and comforted all in one. That’s great news no matter what kind of tea you’re drinking.
Never heard of banana tea? We don’t blame you. This is a great tea for people who not only have trouble falling asleep, but also staying asleep. There’s all kinds of nutrients found in banana infused tea, banana peels are rich in magnesium and potassium. It’s a great alternative to taking a magnesium supplement in pill form. This tea relaxes your blood vessels and also your muscles, so if you suffer from restless leg syndrome, it may be worth taking a shot and downing some banana tea before you rest up on the best mattress.
This might be obvious, people often use lavender smells to get them ready for bed, but did you know that the tea is also super effective? Lavender is known to open your airways, so if you’re suffering from bronchitis, asthma, or even a chest cold, this can be a great option for a pre-bedtime gunk-clearer. It will reduce your cough and help with respiratory issues. And just like Nectar, it’s a low cost solution to your sleepless night problem. Try it with chamomile for some added benefits!
Ginger and Turmeric
This is a classic tea that not only aids digestion, it can help promote a long, even night of sleeping for better health. Turmeric is a known anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory agent, while ginger is also a mild antibiotic that promotes good gut flora. Try this one if you have an upset stomach before bed for a great tasting option to settle down your digestive system. This combination has been used in eastern medicine for years, and it’s great that the west is finally starting to catch on.
As always, any of these teas is great when paired with a Nectar mattress. Nectar makes the best mattress for the best price. With all the money you’re saving, you’re going to be able to try all different sorts of teas! What a tasty way to spend all that excess savings!
