OMG   You are too funny! Thanks for the evening chuckle. Maybe I need to plan a night like this when my husband is not tired with a sore neck from sleeping incorrectly with his pillow. Bummer for me!

Quoted from Alia_Vo
Traditional Medicinals manufactures an excellent Organic Ginger Tea if one is in a pinch for time and would like the option of having portable tea bags to take along with them to work or travel excursions.

Alia,

I found the traditional medicinals organic hojicha (japanese roasted green tea). This is wonderful! It is a success in our household. Taste like black tea that we have been missing.

Quoted from Edna


The one kind of tea I drink that is a no-no is Twinings Earl Grey, as it is black tea and not green tea (Twinings makes an Earl Grey GREEN, but it is nearly impossible to find...even Whole Foods doesn't have it and, if Whole Foods doesn't have something, I don't need it *lol*...but they are looking into if they can order it for me).  


Edna,

I found this link today and thought of you. They have Organic Green Earl Grey Tea. I did not look any further but thought I would share the link with you, just in case you were interested.

Missy,
That's a great little tea site.  They have a good choice of white teas, as well, and give a brief explanation on what White tea is.  They have a few different grades of White tea also.

Yay for Earl Green for Edna!

Thanks for the advice Victoria, will give the twig tea / roasted green tea a try.

I also checked the link Lola, thanks it answered my Q perfectly!


I am very new to all this, only been involved for past week and only got onto this site today .The question I wanted answered was, is Rooibos Tea OK for type A. I am afraid I am still trying to understand all of this so read the answer and I realise it is OK for type O but I am still unsure if it is OK for type A. I really hope it is because I love my tea and really can't handle green tea or any of the herbal teas and Rooibos is as close as I can get. Hope you can clear this up for me

I just purchased the Mr. Itaru green tea and I love it.  I started drinking one cup a day in the morning and now I'm up to two (another one in the evening).  From what I gleaned (sorry, I never get to use that word) it has less caffeine than coffee but still it has caffeine.  I never drink coffee except in the AM because of the caffeine but for some reason this doesn't bother me when I drink it at night, so far.

In trying to get more information about the tea it seems that it is very important not to use boiling water (warm or hot is fine).  Also, the brewing time is extremely important 30 seconds but no more than 45 seconds.  

I'm writing about this because I started out using boiling water.  When I consciously started using just hot water (I don't think I'd like it with warm water) it seemed to make a difference in the way I felt.  Actually, much better.  

I also read in Japan that people drink 4-5 cups of this tea a day.  As I intend to continue drinking the tea on a regular basis now I haven't heard about any toxicity or side effects, if you will.

The tea should look light green when brewed.  It has a milder taste than alot of green teas (no aftertaste) and I chewed on a piece of brown rice.   What a great nutty flavor.  I've never tasted brown rice that flavorable before.  I'd love to be able to get some to use with meals!

Anyway, I'm so thankful that this is available through NAP...

I used to hear a lot about how long it takes for caffeine to reach it's maximum level in the blood.  This is something I have not seen discussed in a long time.  What I used to hear is this:
When we ingest caffeine, it doesn't immediately reach its peak level in the blood.  It takes about 5 hours before it is at its highest concentration and then it begins to diminish.  Maybe it is even longer than 5 hours, because I can't recall the details of this.  So maybe if you drink coffee just before you go to bed, it would be at it's maximum caffeine level just in time to wake you up in the morning.

Victoria,

That's interesting about when caffeine reaches its peak in one's system.  I was drinking the tea around 8PM and going to sleep around 11PM.  

It would be great to think its the caffeine in tea or coffee that's disturbing my sleep but I've been waking up at early hours for a few months now without drinking caffeine at night.

Looks like I have to see what else is brewing in the ole noggin.......
