I'm an Explorer A+ (new to this) and find that even a cup of green tea brewed for only one minute makes me feel quite off. It is the same with any alcohol - literally, one sip of wine - no kidding - goes straight down my spine and throws me off. Anyone else? Even though green tea is a superfood, I suppose the best thing to do is leave it out? Opinions/experience anyone?

Thank you!

I get the spine thing with wine too - right in the cervical area. Weird. I did buy some green tea (loose leaves) and found I felt off after having it. I can only use the type in packets? I have no explanation for this.

Whenever I used to try green tea, because I thought it was supposed to be healthy, it made me feel funny and broke inside my mouth out with canker sores, just like black tea did. I don't drink any alcohol.

Does this happen every time you drink the tea?  Also, caffeine is not recommended for explorers, and even the caffeine in green tea can be too much.  I drink decaf green tea and decaf coffee now, only rarely drinking a caffeinated drink.

I like alcohol, but it tends to feel like a toxin to me.  Exercise gives me a cleaner high.  Red wine usually feels the best to drink of all alcoholic drinks, but many reds have sulfites or nitrites (something like that).
