The sandman is a popular character found in Western mythology who sprinkles sand into the eyes of sleepers to bring them pleasant dreams. He has been featured in anything from children’s tales to comics to movies and music, including Neil Gaiman’s famous Sandman comic series, the song “Mr. Sandman” by The Chordettes, and the 2012 animated movie Rise of the Guardians. If the idea of a spritely stranger blowing sand in your face doesn’t appeal to you though, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. This 40 Winks tea will help you drift right off to dreamland, no sand required.
