“As much as you can eat healthy, it’s also important to remember to drink healthy too. Tea is very healing.”

Kristin Chenoweth

Getting enough sleep every night is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. Having a cup of tea that will give us better sleep quality is the perfect end to the day.

Making my own bedtime tea blends was one of my New Year’s resolutions. I love combining herbs, spices, and tea leaves to make tea for every mood.

One of my popular posts is Cozy Hygge Bedtime Rituals to Try Tonight. I believe in changing our routines into ones that nourish us so we have the energy to face our daily challenges.

Creating herbal tea blends is a fun hobby that will pay off immensely.

You can either grow your herbs at home to make your tea – find out more from this article I wrote on How to Grow a Tea Garden.

What is bedtime tea?

This recipe combines USDA organic tea ingredients that helps give you a good sleep. Herbal tea recipes use medicinal herbs that have calming effects and are natural sleep aids.

When is the best time to drink bedtime tea?

Drink your cup of bedtime tea at least an hour before bed.

If you would rather buy your ingredients in bulk, it will save you a lot of money over time. I do a combination of both.

Tea has been the world’s favorite drink for over 4,000 years, and that’s quite the testimony. Herbal teas are loaded with micronutrients that offer health benefits with every sip.

Going through the ritual of making and enjoying your tea can help you unwind before bedtime. That’s a good thing for everyone.

After researching every ingredient, everyone agreed that the herbs helped them have a more restful sleep.

I always buy organic herbs because no one needs any additional pesticides in our bodies.

While browsing through the All-Natural Herbal Remedies booklet, I found this recipe for one of the best bedtime teas. The combination of loose-leaf tea ingredients makes this one of the best teas to use as a sleep aid for sweet dreams.

Does the Bedtime Tea Recipe make you sleepy?

Not only does the ritual of making yourself tea relax you and help you fall asleep, but the ingredients in this tea will help give you a peaceful night’s rest. This tea has a delicious warming flavor you’ll love.

You will find that the ingredients, when mixed together, will answer yes to the question, “Does bedtime tea work?”

Is tea good before going to bed?

The calming act of making tea combined with herbal ingredients is a great way to create a good routine for both your body and mind.

Consider drinking your tea about an hour before bedtime if you frequently get up to go to the restroom during the night.

Bedtime Tea Ingredients


Passionflower - Ingredient for Herbal Bedtime Tea Recipe
Easy Sleep Tea Recipe Ingredients -Passionflower

The passion flower is a climbing vine with leaves used to make tea.

It has a subtle earthy taste – when mixed with chamomile and lemon balm, the taste is barely noticeable.

You can buy dried herbs in bulk – they seem expensive to start – but a pound of each dried herb will make a lot of tea! Passionflower tea is an excellent start to this recipe.

Dried Passionflower can be found here on Amazon.

Sleep Tea Recipe Ingredient – Chamomile Flowers

We all know chamomile tea is a natural sedative, but did you know it also helps relieve stress? It has a calming effect, that is needed for a good night’s sleep in today’s busy world.

It also boosts immunity, eases cold symptoms, reduces inflammation, and soothes stomach aches.

Chamomile is the perfect ingredient to add to any bedtime tea formula. It’s known throughout the world as a sleep inducer.

The flowers are gorgeous, so they add loveliness to any tea garden. Fresh or dried flowers are what you use to make your tea. 

Chamomile flowers have a slightly fruity taste. You can find organic dried chamomile flowers here on Amazon.

This beautiful flower is known as the best tea before bedtime.

Lemon Balm

Lemon balm helps with both insomnia and anxiety. Both are bedtime tea benefits that will make you a happy camper.

Part of the mint family, lemon balm looks like mint but smells and tastes like lemons. Adding lemon balm dried leaves to your bedtime tea routine instead of taking it as an herbal supplement is a wonderful alternative.

You can find organic dried lemon balm here on Amazon.

Tips for Making Herbal Bedtime Tea Recipe:

  1. You can substitute your preferred sweetener, like maple syrup, for a little honey in your cup of herbal tea.
  2. It’s best to buy organic dried herbs or grow them yourselves. You don’t want to ingest pesticides in your tea before bedtime.
  3. If you want to give this delicious sleep tea blend as a gift, you can fill your own tea bags to put in a cute tin canister with a note wishing them the sweetest dreams. You could add loose leaf tea to the canister and a mug tea infuser.
  4. You can find tea bags on Amazon here.
  5. Add a little almond milk or warm milk to your organic tea to add creaminess and create your perfect cup.
  6. Whenever I have leftover orange peel, I like to add that to the tea blend as well.
  7. Spearmint leaf can be used in place of lemon balm.
  8. When making your own herbal teas, store them in an airtight container in a dark spot.
