This is the chamomile tea that you’ve been dreaming of. Every sip has been infused with reishi to support better sleep, and ashwagandha to chill you out. Put simply... you’ll be mellowed out inno time.
The verdict is in
“I tried the Dream and the Flow and loved them. I want more haha!"
My favourite thing about steep and mellow is the quality of hand selected plant based ingredients. As an athlete, I'm always on the hunt for nourishing drinks and this one just so happens to be hot, healthy and rich in flavour. Grateful for a daily dose of DREAM - it's a whole new level of chamomile.
Excellent flavor, highly enjoyable, would drink again. Love the packaging and sustainability aspect for sure.
The green tea is hands down my fav. I could literally drink it all day.
We've got people talking...
Soak It Up
Welcome to adaptogens & nootropics 101. Here’s everything you could ever possibly want to know about these funky ingredients.
Adaptogens & Nootropics 🍄 🧠
The main difference between adaptogens and nootropics is that adaptogens help support what we need in our bodies, whereas nootropics feed the mind. Adaptogens hear what your body is calling for and support it against various stressors like high blood pressure, anxiety, and fatigue. Nootropics on the other hand are like little brain boosters with the ability to increase memory, productivity and overall thinking power! In some cases, certain ingredients can have the benefits of both which is pretty freakin’ cool.
Relax + Unwind 🌙
Ashwagandha is like the smooth talker of the group, it just has a way of making you feel great. This herb is traditionally found in the Ayurveda traditional medicine practices of India. The root of the plant is what we use in our blends as it is the nutrient dense and filled with the most love. It’s best known for its ability to reduce anxiety and lower cortisol levels.
Reishi is huge in size, and benefits. *Insert whatever size joke that just popped into your head here.* This mushroom’s roots date way back as it was commonly used in traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean medicine. It’s best known for its immunity boosting qualities. It’s not a magic mushroom per say, but it’s pretty magical to us.
Valerian root has been used for centuries and is even noted in ancient Greek texts as a remedy for insomnia. Research indicates that this is because of the roots ability to tap into one of the mind's main sedative neurotransmitters known as gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). So if the Valerian root could sing, we believe it would be nothing but sweet lullabies.

We believe that we have two homes, our bodies and our planet. It’s so important that we take care of them and don’t feed them any B.S. (bad stuff). Here’s how we’re keepin’ it clean and green.
01 Plant Based Tea Bags
Our tea bags are actually made from corn.They’re strong enough to resist the heat in your mug, but delicate enough to break down in your compost. Give it 30 days and it'll turn into dirt.
02 Compostable String and Tag
Our tags are made from eco-friendly paper. The coating on them that is used to keep them from disintegrating is plant based too. Yeah, we thought of everything.
03 Plant Based Wrappers
Just like our tea bags, these bad boys are made with plant power. The only difference is that they’re made from wood instead of corn. Got wood? We do. Get your mind out of the gutter.
04 Compostable Tea Boxes
Our tea boxes are made from eco-friendly paper fibers and printed with safe inks which make them easy to properly dispose of. Pick your bin and let nature do the rest of the work.
Pro-tip: If you choose to compost, make sure you tear it up into tiny pieces to promote oxygenation and a smoother transition to this box's end of life.
