  • Note to Self

    Dear Self: Drinking caffeinated tea two hours before bedtime is a STUPID THING TO DO. No wonder you're still awake at 1:30 am. Please don't do this stupid thing again. Camomile is your friend after 6 pm.

    Sincerely,
    Me

    LOL - I had a terrible period of insomnia about two weeks ago that I could NOT figure out. Finally I realized that the Kombucha tea I was guzzling down with my dinner at night was full of caffeine!

    I finally took benadryl to get to sleep. Good luck

        Heh. Glad you figured it out! I took two advil for my splitting headache -- but that was an hour ago. Headache is gone. I'm wide awake. Damn it.

            Before quitting dairy I drank my coffee with milk and had the opposite reaction - it always made me so sleepy...

              I take my coffee and tea black. No milk to offset the caffeine. Oops!

                  I like Yerba Mate...
                  For some reason it gives me energy during the day...but at night, I can drink one and fall asleep like a baby.
                  Primal (2013)
                  Locavore (locally grown foods when possible)
                  Training consists of Muay Thai, BJJ, weight training, and mountain biking

                  Would like to be in good shape by my 36th Birthday (07-07-2013)

                    I've heard this before about Mate teas, and I've experienced it first-hand. It perks me up but doesn't give me the jitters.
