I’m hoping one day to find a replacement for my beloved Bedtime Blues from A Quarter to Tea. This one has similar ingredients, but the flavors aren’t quite there. I’m guessing it’s the blueberry I’m missing. It’s still enjoyable, if a little bitter. The ingredient list is interesting too, lots of good stuff in here – chamomile, ashwagandha, mugwort, valerian root, passionflower, wild lettuce, chaga mushroom, peppermint – all the good sleepytime stuff, some adaptogens, and a little mushroom goodness. Having this as a latte, which is my preferred way to drink herbals these days.
This is a custom blend from a local tea company that focuses on healing herbs and Ayurvedic philosophies. I contacted the owner and told her about my issues with vestibular migraine and she created two blends for me – this one for head pain and another for vertigo and dizziness.
I simmered the blend for five minutes and steeped for another five minutes, per the package directions. The result is a minty, bitter brew but it feels very soothing. I leaned over the simmering liquid to inhale the steam and it had a comforting medicinal feel. The same leaves can be used up to 3 times so I’ll plan to make a couple more cups of this tonight to get the most of it.
