Coffee is not exactly the best nostrum to use for getting to sleep. On the contrary, it’s the sort of pick-me-up people drink to stay awake. However, as there is an exception to every rule, there actually is a brand of iced coffee that can help you chill out.
RealBeanz, a Brooklyn, NY-based brewer, offers one such ready-to-drink coffee. RealBeanz’s Relax is a decaffeinated brew mixed with milk and a touch of Madagascan vanilla to make a delightful, not too sweet sipper that goes down smoothly. And, more than that…
…this particular drink is compounded with several herbs that have long been known in the practice of both aromatherapy and homeopathy to help lull the mind and body into a state of repose and relaxation.
Chamomile, in particular, helps alleviate the effects of stress and eases anxiety. Lemon balm helps relax the drinker’s mental state and calms the psyche. And there is a tinge of passion flower to help relax tense muscles. So, you see, it’s the sort of coffee you can chug down at the end of the day – and still be able to grab forty, well-earned winks.
(Note: I found RealBeanz iced coffee in the chilled drinks section of Shopwise Supermarket in Alabang. All variants are priced at P 117.00 per bottle.)
