It’s been a hard, long day and you’re looking forward to two things: your bed and a warm cup of tea.
The question is: should you really be drinking that cup of tea before heading off to the magical land of Sleep? Are there any negative side-effects to drinking tea at night? The answer is “yes and no”, it really depends on a few variables…
Herbal teas generally don’t have any caffeine, or may have just very tiny trace amounts if any at all, making them a great choice.
The different, of course, is that they aren’t steeped using actual tea leaves, but rather (often) a blend of various herbs, spices, and plants. You can make tea out of just about anythingYou may want to try herbal teas, such as chamomile or peppermint varieties which are more likely caffeine-free, and can also help with headaches. If they have regular tea leaves in the blend, there will still be trace amounts of caffeine, however it wont be as strong as pure leaf tea, for obvious reasons.
