What does Sleep Tea taste like?
Sleep has a mellow, honey-like sweetness with floral undertones. Golden in colour Sleep not only tastes clean and fresh, but it also looks gorgeous as well. As it is naturally caffeine free, Sleep won’t keep you up at night and is an excellent choice to be enjoyed at any time of the day.
