Yoga Studio Matcha Tea Sleepy Head Tea

Sleepy head is a floral infusion designed to relax the body and mind. Gentle, soothing chamomile with hints of honey sweetness and paired with tangy elderflower and fragrant lavender. Traditionally used to ease stress and insomnia, this tea imparts a moment of repose.

Drink by boiling freshly drawn water, infuse leaves for three minutes and enjoy without milk. Parcelled in our special loose-leaf Fuso bags which are biodegradable, our mesh infusers are the perfect size to let whole leaf tea expand, releasing those delicious flavours for your delectation.

Matcha, which is occasionally spelled ‘Maccha’, is a finely ground green tea synonymous with the Japanese Tea Ceremony known as ‘Chado’.

As the most potent of green teas (at around fifteen times the strength of its counterparts), it was originally reserved for Japanese royalty and religious dignitaries. However, thanks to its fantastic antioxidant properties, it has become increasingly popular amongst health-conscious Western tea drinkers. Some of the health benefits include energy boosts, calorie burning and an overall body detox.

Unlike most teas, this simultaneously sweet and astringent tea is best enjoyed by drinking with long sips. Its high dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals have been proven to significantly increase energy whilst avoiding the ‘crash’ associated with more caffeinated beverages, making it both a perfect start to the day or an antidote to post-lunch lethargy.
