Best Selling Teas in India to Help You Sleep Better

TOP TEAS TO HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER

Getting a night of the perfect, restful sleep often turns out to be quite elusive. No matter how well you make your bed, how optimal you keep the temperature of your AC, or how fluffy your pillows, sometimes you just cannot get yourself to fall asleep. Well, we have the perfect antidote for your sleepless nights- sleep teas.

Teas are a huge part of many cultures and cuisines, a common sight during breakfast and tea time. However, certain teas, when added to your pre-bedtime routine, can help enhance the quality of your sleep greatly.

Tulsi tea

Leaves of the Tulsi plant are used as a remedy quite frequently for common maladies. These leaves can also be used in teas- freshly or dried. Tulsi leaf teas are a rich source of antioxidants that provide the added benefit of acting as an antidepressant. They help reduce stress levels, and sooth and calm your body. They are the perfect choice of tea to drink before bedtime, as they will help you slip into a deep slumber.

The Organic India Tulsi tea comes in a pack of 25 tea bags. They are immunity boosters as well, and are affordably priced (Rs 161 for a pack).

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile is a useful ingredient in tonics for several illnesses- ulcers, wounds, menstrual cramps, muscle inflammation and more. One among these is insomnia! Chamomile’s soothing effects help lull the drinker to sleep. A cup of chamomile tea doesn’t just help you fall asleep; it helps achieve good quality sleep which results in you waking up feeling refreshed.

The Teabox chamomile tea bags also come in packs of 25. They are pricier than Tulsi teas, costing Rs. 253 per box. Buyers can however be assured that they will get their money’s worth, since these teas are sources from the Himalayas and the producers export to many countries.

Spiced Apple Tea

We’ve all heard of the phrase- “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. This spiced apple tea isn’t scientifically proven to keep doctors away, however, it does do wonders for your sleep! This is regular tea revamped with the sweet tartness of apple. It is a must try product for those who wish to try something new and different.

The Karma Kettle “Spiced Apple Roiboos” tea comes in a box with 20 tea-bags. It is definitely more expensive than the other options we have explored in this article, priced at Rs. 299 per box. It can be prepared as iced tea or a cold brew as well, apart from as a regular hot-tea.

Organic Lavender and Rose Blend

Few things smell better than lavender and rose, and this tea has them both. This brew comes in a tiny glass bottle, promises good sleep and clear skin, in the same package! This tea is made by brewing buds and petals in water. It is proven to enhance relaxation and sleep, and has a positive effect on anxiety as well.

Ausum’s Organics Lavender and Rose Blend tea comes in bottles of 30 grams each, costing Rs. 255 per bottle.

Herbal Valerian Root Tea

Herbal teas are a treasure trove of goodness and nutrients that help your body in a variety of ways. At the end of a long day, sipping a cup of herbal tea is the best way to unwind. This has scientific backing too- herbal teas have been proven to reduce stress, calm down the body and boost brain health, apart from improving the quality of your sleep, of course. Hence, a cup of herbal tea is the perfect addition to your pre-bedtime routine.

The Tea-Trove has come up with this delicious blend of chamomile, lavender, peppermint and valerian root. The flavour of this tea is sweet and punchy at the same time. It comes packed in a bag containing 50 grams of loose leaves, and costs Rs. 355 per box.

Celestial Seasonings Herbal Tea

Here is another herbal tea you definitely should try – the celestial seasonings herbal tea from Sleepytime. Completely caffeine-free and healthy, this tea should be your new pre-bedtime partner. 

This tea comes in a huge pack of 6 tea bags, liberally priced at Rs. 1258.12 for 20 such packs (containing 6 tea bags each!). To make it better, the packaging is completely sustainable, making this a very low-waste and low-calorie drink for all the environment and health conscious folks out there!

Herbal tea with Chamomile, Lavender & Valerian

We’ve talked about the benefits of herbal, chamomile tea, lavender and valerian tea. Well, guess what?- this tea has got them all! The Pukka Organic Tea Bags, Night Time Herbal Tea with Chamomile, Lavendar & Valerian, combines the flavour and goodness of all the teas mentioned above, helping you tackle a harem of problems – from sleep to skincare- all in one go!

These teas are a bulk purchase of sorts. They come in a pack of three, each box containing 20 tea bags. This pack of three is priced at Rs. 1245.32. 

There are a myriad of things you can do and products you can buy to help you sleep better. But teas are often overlooked.

If you have not tried teas yet, we hope this article will compel you to check them out!
