Fresh Tea for Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams! Herbal Tea from LUPICIA Fresh Tea

So many products on the market claim to be fresh these days, but we know for sure that LUPICIA Fresh Tea is one of them. The company, which has over 15 years of experience in Japan and has opened U.S. stores in Northern and Southern California as well as Hawaii, offers fresh teas packaged in outstanding materials. Each 50-gram serving is enclosed in nitrogen-filled foil bags to prevent oxidation, and come sealed in lovely tins that include expiration dates, helping ensure that the leaves are enjoyed at their prime.

There are over 400 varieties available, including original, flavored, herbal and wellness blends, as well as plantation teas — brews that are produced in specific plantations and regions. We sampled Sweet Dreams!, an herbal blend made with chamomile flowers, ginger, apple bits and fennel. With its calming, fruity aromas and light, flavorful taste, this low-caffeine tea is just right for drinking at night.

Price: $9 for a .88 oz tin of Sweet Dreams!
