Why was our Tea Bonbon 'Sweet Home' designed to calm you down before you go to bed?
Rose helps you let go of stress. When the aroma spreads and the steam curls up, you can let go of your worries and regain some inner peace. The next step is to move from sofa to bed and sleep tight.
Tea is a bit of a paradox: we love to relax with a cup after work, but the caffeine enhances alertness and concentration, which probably can last until the midnight and disturb sleep. should you give up drinking tea to safeguard your sleep? that's going too far!
One common way is to avoid drinking tea 4 to 6 hours before bedtime. Another effective trick is to throw away the first infusion or steep your tea for more than 3 minutes – here I mean real tea, instead of powdered teabags.
Actually the calming effects of some herbal teas can outweigh their action as a stimulant – rest assured and take full advantage of these teas as an aid in reducing anxiety. After a day’s busy schedule and working like a superman, help yourself to a cup of herbal tea such as a Sweet Home or chamomile tea.
The Sweet Home Tea Bonbon makes use of a recipe that was created by Siyi to complement the other bonbons. Like the After Lunch and Brainstorming bonbons it contains a relatively small amount of caffeine – much lower than a cup of coffee. Fermented Puer is a tea known in China for its homely and reassuring flavors, hence it is a common tea to drink after dinner. Sweet Home also contains Stevia rebaudiana, a natural 'sweetener' which has been drunk by indigenous people in South America for many hundreds of years before being adopted by the food industry as a healthy alternative to sugar.
Sweet Home is a great way to deliver a dose of mental quietness before sweet dreams. Key to this is the presence of rose leaves. As well as its variety of physical health befits, rose tea calms your mind and elevates your mood. Rose tea is a natural and safe alternative to the drugs sometimes prescribed for anxiety or sleeplessness. Furthermore rose also fights headaches and is known to reduce swellings. All these benefits help explain the great number of ways we find people using rose: in perfumes, oils, incenses and more. All these warming, sweet flavors were selected deliberately by Siyi to make your evening more comfortable and get you ready to settle down for the night. So enjoy your tea, then move straight from the sofa to bed...
