Beaker

Juiced up...

I've really been craving the coffee these days because the insomnia bug has been making me uselessly listless lately (say that five times, fast!) But, I know that drinking my beloved brew only sets me on a merry-go round of sleeplessness, so alas, I've limited my intake to a couple of cups on the weekend. And now I'm trying to get back into the old tea routine. The black teas do have caffeine, though not as much as coffee, and in a pinch, I can drink tea black ~ something I don't like to do with the coffee. Gotta have the cream and sugar in my coffee!

But the herbal teas are more healthful. So of course I don't really like them. I have found that Celestial Seasons Apple Cinnamon tea is really yummy without sugar, though, and have come to depend on that as my winter lifeline, cup-in-hand, beverage-of-choice. Are there any other herbal teas that you've tried that are good 'straight'? Some variety would be nice!

Have you considered the fact you could be going through a coffee detox which is causing sleepless nights? Just curious.

My personal favorite tea, (Celestial Seasons Apple Cinnamon tea was my favorite until I found this one) is Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy tea and herb blend. No sugar/sweetener required. It is wonderful...

And thank you for the Valentine poem! It was very nice. Cathy

Hey, Natalie ~ Ya know, that's a good thought, but I think I already went through that, as I've been off all caffeine and sugar (except for 2 cups of coffee a week) for a month now. If there are any toxins in my system now they have to be environmental. Which is possible maybe? I'm thinking it's perimenopause, though, which may explain why the insomnia seems to be cyclical.

Cathy ~ Oh, yeah! I've had the Good Earth and really liked it, but had forgotten about it! I need to go get some. Thanks!

I like regular tea, but with a wedge of lemon and no sugar.

That's how my Nonna always drank tea...
