    I struggle with pain due to fibromyalgia and it can make it really hard for me to sleep, this tea really helps me get a better night’s sleep. It’s the only tea that has ever helped me. I love the ritual of slowing down and making the tea. It tastes great and paired with Nikki s calm candle you are on to a winner for a better sleep.

  2. Petrina Menzies

    Wow! After 6 months of not getting a full nights sleep at last. I’ve got problems with damaged nerves in my leg, the doctors keep changing the tables etc which I don’t like! I decided I would try the sleep tea. I can’t believe one cup of tea last night has given me the first full nights sleep with not waking up with the pain in my leg. I feel so calm and relaxed it’s unbelievable. I’m going to tell the doctor not to increase my tablets again! Until I’ve had two weeks drinking this tea each night and then see how I feel. I’m hoping I can decrease the tablets!

      Oh wow Petrina!!! This is wonderful news. I hope the sleep tea continues to bring you a good night’s sleep. 🙂

    Well what can I say.. I have terrible trouble sleeping at the best of times and if I do its never restful. This tea is a pure comfort a cup of this before bed and I’m gone and relaxed. It’s wonderful to know that what you putting in your body isn’t going to upset your system as it’s pure natural bliss. If you have any troubles sleeping one cup of this and you’ll be hooked. Another jar to add to my growing collection xx


    I’ve been drinking this most evenings before bed and I absolutely love it. It’s massively helping, especially in COVID times to improve my sleep which has gone from 8-9 hours to 6 at best. It’s a bit of a ritual now and not only is it comforting, it really does make me sleepy! Hurrah. Yet another win from the Nikki Hill tea collection. I’m obsessed.

    For those that like herbal teas… I highly recommend Nikki Hill Apothecary (based in Wilmslow)… I’ve tried them all.. tetleys, pukka, twinings.. you name it… none taste as “natural” as hers.. these are my 2 go-to ones –

    ☕️ Female Harmony Tea – rose petals, chamomile flower, lady’s mantle, lemon balm & dandelion leaf (helps regulate all things female 😉 I’ve been using them now for nearly 3 months, gone from mega pain to virtually zero)

    ☕️ Sleep Time Tea – chamomile flower, lavender buds, hops flowers, valerian root, lemon balm & passionflower.. as it sounds, to aid sleep 😴 again, marked improvement in nearly 3 months, I’ve gone from 4-5 hours sleep a night to 6-7.

    There’s plenty of others.. one of my friends particularly likes the “digestive tea” as she suffers from quite bad reflux.

      You made my day when you emailed me to say my sleep tea was better than Pukka’s. LOL! And the fact it’s improved your sleep as well is fantastic. So pleased. Thanks for this wonderful review Katy. xx

    Sleep time tea is an essential part of my daily routine. Anytime after 7pm I pour a heaped teaspoon into a half sized cafetiere and watch the flowers just dance with joy, the camomile are my favourite (you just don’t get whole flowers in regular supermarket teas) I then pour the tea into a glass cup so I can see and appreciate what I’m drinking. It’s a beautiful smooth flavour. The quality of the flowers means you can refresh the pot again, never throw out after the first brew! Making and drinking the tea is a mindful way of reminding me and my body to slow down….For a super blissed out evening, I will make up a pot and double up with a Sleep Time Bath….seriously we all deserve this as part of our self care routine!

    I have been using Nikki’s products now for about a year. Honestly I absolutely love her sleep tea, it’s very pleasant to drink and sends me off to a lovely, peaceful sleep. I find Nikki to be knowledgeable in her field and she has also helped my mum with her menopause symptoms. I have used a variety of Nikki’s products including the Sleep Elixir, White Peony tea, Liquorice tea which is excellent for sweet cravings by the way and the Relax tea which I use before yoga or meditating. Once you try these products you will never look back, they’re fab!
