Sleeping BeauTea

Want to biohack your sleep? Combining nutraceuticals, minerals and Chinese & Ayurvedic Tonic Herbs, this is our ultimate herbal sleep tea! 

Awaken the Shen is calming and heart opening, while pearl powder is soothing and grounding. L-theanine is a GABA precursor, your neurotransmitter for relaxation. Ashwagandha can help to regulate sleep patterns, and also influences GABA pathways.  Bupleurum & Dragon Bone is a Vegan option to replace the pearl powder, it is a classic Chinese herbal formula that helps to relieve stress by relieving liver stagnation and is also used to help curb addiction. 5-HTP is a precursor to melatonin, the neurotransmitter of the sleep cycle. Magnesium, the mineral of calmness, adds another layer of deep sleep and rejuvenation, while SugaVida provides crucial micronutrients. 

Want to take it one step further? Use the adaptogenic herb Gynostemma for your tea base in Spring Dragon Tea. Let the stress of the day roll off your back, and may deep, delta, stage 4 sleep be your new best friend.

In a small pan, combine the water and coconut milk and bring to a light boil. If you are using Spring Dragon Tea for your base, then bring just the water to a boil and turn the heat off and allow the teabag steep for 5 minutes. Remove the teabag, add the coconut milk, and continue warming to a simmer. 

Place all ingredients in your blender, adding your hot liquid last. Cover the lid with a towel, making sure the lid is vented. Hold the lid down tightly. Blend on the lowest setting, gradually ramping it up to a high speed and blending well, for 30 seconds.
