“A wise man once said, ‘To be still sometimes requires great effort.’ For a path of less resistance, unwind with a well-steeped cup of TAZO REST. Fragrant rose petals and lavender mingle with calming lemon balm, lemon myrtle, and soothing valerian in a delicate, aromatic blend to which eyelids willingly succumb.” ~The quote on the box of TAZO REST

TAZO REST contains:

lemon balm

rose petals

honeybush (rooibos)

orange peel

lemon myrtle

lemon verbena

licorice root

ginger

ornage essence

Chinese geranium oil

My new favorite relaxing ritual at bedtime… TAZO REST tea. Last night while finishing my latest re-read of The Shell Seekers, by Rosamunde Pilcher, I was sipping this tea. It has a much more soporific effect than chamomile. I fell asleep holding my book and the reading light was still on when I woke up 4 hours later. 🙂 I know enough about herbs to know that the valerian was the culprit. This stuff is heavenly.

Enjoy!

    You know what I’m discovering, about all hot drinks, is that they get cold too fast. I either end up drinking them right away, and then consume more cups, or I reheat them multiple times to drink at a semi-normal pace. Any suggestions??

    The Nissan stainless steel insulated travel tumbler with a lid that seals, really works well for keeping hot drinks hot, but they’re kind of expensive, ($25 for an 18 oz.) and if you are both a coffee and tea drinker, I wouldn’t recommend using the same mug for both beverages because ultimately anything that houses coffee long enough “adopts” a coffee taste that is almost impossible to get rid of. The Aladdin “On the Go” tea tumbler is pretty awesome and has a tea infuser basket right inside. I’m not a fan of the other Aladdin products, and by the looks of it, either are a lot of other people…pretty low ratings on their other “on the go” products.

    Or if you consume most of your beverages at home…the best way to enjoy hot beverages is to get a little electric tea kettle that you keep on the counter all the time…Cuisinart makes one called “Perfect Temp” that is a fabulous, cordless, electric tea kettle. There are other, less expensive ones that are cordless, and ones with cords, but I think this one is the best for the money. 😉

    Hope this helps!

    Awesome, thanks for the help! Are you going to include a chapter in your tea book about products or tips like this? :0)

    You’re welcome 🙂 Yes, there will be lots of little bits of wisdom like this scattered throughout. You can’t help but pick up some good tips when you’ve worked with some of the best tea people in the business. I have many years worth of this in a pile of notebooks here in my study. Can’t wait to share!

    I LOVE this tea. My aunt gave me a couple of teabags to try it out. I tried the first one early in the evening and fell asleep on the couch so I realized that it was good stuff. I was having trouble sleeping a few nights later, drank a cup and was out like a light in 30 minutes or so. I went to the store last night to find some as I have had insomnia all week and I feel wrecked and they didn’t have any. =-( I am now on a search for a BIG box so that never happens again. Love and light all…

    I agree! This is amazing. I tried the Yogi tea that contains valerian (I think it’s called Dream) when I couldn’t find the Tazo Rest, and it was delicious, but not as powerful as the Tazo. I like your idea! Stockpile the stuff!

    Thanks for commenting!
    Best,
    Melissa
