A few years ago there was a point where I would drink 12 cups of tea a day. Black tea. Straight Up. Caffeine in tea? Surely not! At first I didn't think it had any affect on me at all. That was until I realised it wasn't normal to lay awake at night with twitching eyeballs. What? Nobody else goes to bed with twitching eyeballs? I decided it was probably best to cut waaay back on the tea. Amazingly I started to sleep better and my twitching stopped as well.
These days I'm a lot more modest with my tea drinking. Only the occasional cup of normal tea and lots of herbal teas. I adore herbal teas, so I don't really feel like I'm missing out. But do you know what's the tastiest herbal tea? The tea you grow yourself.
I'm always looking for new flavour combinations to try too. Basil and thyme tea? Sure I'd give it a go! Perhaps with a squeeze of lemon.
How about you? Do you drink herbal teas? Do you grow your own? Got a favourite combination I should try?
