    That's interesting about the tea. For myself though I have been sensitive to black tea, green tea, coffee, coffee diet pills, too much chocolate. I get the sane over wired, shaky jittery feeling.

    Sooo... There may be something else to blame in the coffee causing the elevated cortisol, but since black tea lowers it, I doubt caffeine is the cause.
    Or something else you find in tea that significantly counteracts the caffeine that lowers it for that matter.... Ah, confounders. Is there a caffeine only trial on this somewhere?
