Valerian and passionflower tea is great. I have a sleep time tea that combines these two with a few other herbs. I could never drink valerian tea on its own because valerian tastes bad. But I know how beneficial it is. I'm so happy that I found a tea mix that allows me to get the benefits and that actually tastes good.
I tend to get kind of wind-up at the end of the day, especially if it was a rough day at work. I have trouble falling asleep for this reason. Valerian and passionflower tea help me unwind so that I can fall asleep.
