Best Sleepy-Time Teas

According to a 2018 study by The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine, about 25 percent of Americans develop insomnia each year. This could be due to stress, a hectic travel or work schedule, a bad sleep routine, or even late night snacks. Of course, how much caffeine, alcohol and nicotine you consume might not help either.

We all know we're supposed to get at least seven hours of sleep each night, but winding down in these times is tougher than ever. Luckily, tea is a timeless luxury proven for centuries to aid insomnia, relax those muscles and sooth your soul.

Herbal blends of chamomile, lavender and lemon are just a few teas known to get those lids all droopy. If you're searching for the best sleep-inducing brands, our list is ready to tuck you in.
