    I like Kenyan Chai tea. My sister in law turned me on to it and its just kind of soothing and homey to me.

    Sleepytime tea. It's one of my favorites. One sip and there is relaxation.

    There are many herb teas that can help you relax - mint, camomile, sage and other cooler herbal teas such as green tea and jasmine tea. If you can create the right atmosphere too this enhances the feel good factor. A little honey in the tea may be good.

    Depends on how relaxed you want to get smile

    Chamomile tea is known for is calming effects on the nerves and quieting effects on the chatty mind.  Lavender is well-renowned for relaxation of body and mind.  These two, alone or together, make a pleasant herbal tea that can help calm and relax without lulling you to sleep. 

    Hops (like in beer) is also known for it's calming, relaxing properties. I personally find hops to dull the senses as well, making it one of my least favorite herbs to sip if I'm planning on staying awake.

    Although fragrant and herbal, chai teas usually use an actual tea base, meaning the tea contains caffeine - not the best for unwinding.  In fact, all true teas - black, green, white, red, pu-erh, etc - will contain caffeine. 

    Celestial Seasoning's standard Sleepy Time tea has chamomile in it, but then throws in spearmint and lemongrass - a diuretic and a stimulant!  So I wouldn't turn to it unless your idea of relaxing is dancing while holding your pee. (This explains their need to make a "Sleepy Time Extra" blend, the same misguided herbal concoction with sedative valerian root added in).

    Speaking of valerian, this is the tea for relaxing you right to sleep, particularly valerian root tea.  As a tea blender, I use valerian root with st. john's wort (a cheerful herb) and chamomile for the ultimate tea-k-o.

    Another mother of a relaxing herb is kava-kava, known for it's superior anti-anxiety effects.  It can be steeped, but I prefer to dissolve it's powder form in warm chocolate milk and down it like a shot in the evening (honestly, I don't know if anyone else in the whole world uses it this way.)

    Looking for more? Look into kratom tea.

    Hope this helps! Happy sipping smile

    My two favorite teas that help me relax is chamomile and lavender. I like to drink a cup of chamomile tea before I go to bed to help me sleep better. And lavender tea is just calming and one of my favorite teas.
