Marley's Mellow Mood Lite Raspberry Tea Lemonade

I have no idea what is up with me lately. Up until recently I have never had a problem with falling asleep. For my entire life, any place or time, I could just lay down my head and in a few minutes I would be out in blissful sleep. Things started to change when energy drinks hit the scene. I don’t drink coffee, so my caffeine intake is pretty low, so these drinks affect me a lot. If it’s in the evening when I drink one, I can kiss sleep goodbye. I’m aware of this issue though, so I know how to control it. Recently though, sleep tends to avoid me for no good reason. There are times when I haven’t had any caffeine, or other stimulants, my mind isn’t racing and I’m not worried about anything; I just can’t sleep. I don’t understand it at all. I’ll be watching a movie late at night, feeling like I’m about to nod off, so I’ll go to bed and as soon as I lay down, BAM I’m awake. Luckily it’s not a constant, just once or twice every couple of weeks, but it’s still bloody annoying. It’s for times like these that I like to keep a bottle of Mellow Mood in my fridge.

Now, as you can see from our older reviews these drinks will make you feel all warm and cozy, while your will to stay awake washes away. They aren’t as strong as they originally were, but they still get the job done. It confuses me when I’m on a decent hike and I find a bottle deep in the woods. Who thought that would be a good idea? You’re trekking through the woods and you decide, shit I need to sleep right now and then leave my trash behind. Scumbag idiots roam this planet.

There are a handful of flavors of Mellow Mood on the market these days, some are teas and some are sparkling. I am more a fan of the tea varieties. I mean who wants to drink bubbly water before sleep? (Yes I know this is just meant to relax you and not actually put you to sleep, but everyone I know who has drunk them falls asleep quickly.) Marley’s has done a great job making functional beverages that actually taste delicious. This is very clearly raspberry tea mixed with lemonade and it tastes natural. Sure it’s sweetened erythritol as well as cane sugar, but it doesn’t taste very diet and the other functional ingredients are completely hidden from your taste buds. I would drink this even if it didn’t help cure my ailments. I’m just lucky it serves other functions as well as tasting nice.
