sleepytime tea hobbiesHow is it that you enjoy your night time tea? Do you enjoy a cup of herbal in the quiet after the kids go to bed? Do you sip a cup during the nightly news? I take mine out to the front porch and sip my tea while I drink in the night. Listening to the night sounds of suburbia, Killdeers winging through the dark... Sometimes watching a bat fly in and out of the streetlight catchng insects.

So... every night before I attempt to get to sleep I sit out on my front porch and have a pot... yes a pot!... of some kind of "sleep" tea or sleepy time tea. For two nights now, I've been drinking California Tea House's Bedtime Chai II. Although, the jury is still out on whether it will help with the RLS, I've slept better the past two nights than I have in quite a long time...
