THE STORY OF LULLABY

Perhaps the most famous lullaby of all time is "Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht", otherwise known as "Lullaby and Goodnight", published by German composer Johannes Brahms in 1868. It goes:

Lullaby and goodnight, with roses bedight
With lilies o'er spread is baby's wee bed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed
Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

The song works wonders on children. Unfortunately, as we age, lullabies tend to lose their efficacy. (Read: no one will sing them to us!) So, what to do when the minutes stretch to hours, as you lie staring at the ceiling? We have just the solution - a delectable tisane designed to "bless thy slumber" sip after sip.

Naturally caffeine-free, Lullaby blends a number of sleepy-time herbs to soothe the spirit and calm the mind. To ensure you sleep even more soundly, we've sourced each of these from growers known for their environmental sensitivity, letting you rest assured the environment wasn't harmed to facilitate your slumber. Don't forget to turn the lights out.

More about our key ingredients:
Valerian Root: Believed to elevate gamma-aminobutyric acid in the brain and induce sleep.
Chamomile: Known for its anti-anxiety, relaxing, calming properties.
Peppermint & Spearmint: Said to ease the mind into preparation for sleep.
Rosehip: Packed with Vitamin C - thought to act as a natural antidepressant and sleep aid.


BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a rolling boil (85 degrees Celcius) for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
