Hello Steepster! It is 1:55 AM and I CAN’T SLEEP. So, in going with tradition of late night tea in an attempt to shut down the hyperbrain, we are trying one from the vaults tonight. Sleepytime Honey. I’m not sure if I’ve actually had any of this before, but the box was opened and there appeared to be several sachets missing from the package. So I guess I’ve tried this before. Anyway, I looked on the outside of the box and couldn’t find steeping instructions. I know they are there somewhere, maybe on the inside? But since I couldn’t find them, I winged it. Boiling water 16oz brewed for 6-7 minutes with one teabag. I say 6-7 minutes because I spent about a minute with the bag in looking for brewing parameters with no luck. Well, onto the taste.

Taste is… yup, that’s sleepytime all right. That signature spearmint/chamomile blend that pretty much every one of CS Sleepytimes have. I did put a single splenda in this because I don’t like the sleepytime plain. Never really have. The flavor isn’t strong enough for me without the added umph. So as for the honey in this, I really can’t taste anything like sweet honey, just the splenda. There’s maybe a bit of muskiness to it that is supposed to be the honey? The mint is dancing on my tongue, and I don’t know how that is supposed to help me sleep – it’s almost invigorating. If I stick my nose in the mug, I get a strong whiff of the honey flavoring, but it really isn’t translating to taste. It definitely smells like honey. Sadly, doesn’t taste it.

Overall, if you like the Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime line you will probably like this one too. The flavor is very similar to other teas in this line that I’ve had. However, if you are looking for a good strong honey flavor, look elsewhere. It ain’t here.

The reason I’ve never cared for Sleepytime is I don’t like the flavor of chamomile. I love Tension Tamer, though!


I hope it helped you sleep!

This suffers the same exact fate as that of the Sleepytime Vanilla- its a vaguely pleasant cup of hot water, with the worlds smallest touch of flavor. In this case the honey flavor is somewhat musky. Not bad, just not a delicious honey note.
Oh well. I’ll be done with it soon enough.

I think they all taste pretty similar personally but the Honey is one I haven’t tried. Most people seem to prefer the Vanilla but I grew up preferring the Original and still do.

This tastes like the Sleepytime Peach, minus the peach.

It’s mostly chamomile. I’ve had several cups now, and I honestly can’t taste the honey. I felt like this should be sweeter.

That said, it’s pretty good, and I like to sip it as part of an evening ritual to get to sleep. I have a lot of trouble sleeping sometimes, so this is, hopefully, a Pavlovian training method. Drink this, body falls asleep. It’s soothing.


I really like honey vanilla chamomile by celestial seasonings :)


I have trouble sleeping too. My Pavlovian training seems to be “Lie in bed, read, check phone 10 times, lie in bed, fall asleep whenevs.”

I loved this one so much, I had two cups of it. When I first open the package, I can smell the spearmint the most. But when I steep it, it suddenly becomes a wonderfully honeyed version of the original blend.

It’s balanced perfectly and tastes very genuine. I get notes of coconut mingled among the honey and chamomile. They should try to make a Sleepytime Coconut next, haha.

My favorite? It’s a toss-up for me between this one and the vanilla flavored Sleepytime.
