Easy Bedtime Herbal Tea

Whether to pick me up or help me relax, tea is one of my absolute favorite drinks. I love waking up to a warm (or iced in the summer) cup of tea. A robust black tea in the morning for a little caffeine boost, a subtle cup of green in the afternoon when I’m feeling a mid-day slump, and a cozy herbal in the evening suits me just fine. One of my favorite parts about traveling is visiting countries that have tea ingrained in their culture. In Ireland, tea is offered with just about every meal, and a scone is sure to accompany it. Near my hometown lies a historic tea house that still serves fresh biscuits, jam, cream, and a menu full of teas that can overwhelm even the most skilled tea connoisseurs. I love to visit the tea house on a lazy Sunday with my friends; I simply can’t get enough of tea! If you haven’t hopped on the tea bandwagon yet, it’s never too late. Tea has countless health benefits, including being an effective natural sleep aid. Enjoying a good book with a cup of chamomile tea is my favorite way to fall asleep. Here is an easy-to-craft bedtime tea that you are sure to love.
