Oxy I drink herbal teas all the time, not for ant specific purpose, just because I find them refreshing and away of limiting a lot of coffee, I also let them get cold and refrigerate them to drink on hot days, I find licorice tea very good at quenching thirst.

What. Licorice tea!!
Never heard of it. Not even sure if I would like it. Actually, I've never even had green tea, so I can't really speak aye!

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to us. (Gandalf the Grey)

Hi

I have discovered Tea Too, T2, it is worth a google. In their stores, they have promotional varieties in jugs and teapots for free trials. You will find many blends of chamilile available.

Some supermarket stores stock a small range of their teas, herbal teas, and tisaines. This is where I have seen liquirice tea, but they have so many different varieties.

Some people say the tea is expensive, and if you compare it to supermarket options, it is more expensive, but I make a pot according to directions and choose varieties that can be drunk hot or cold. I frequently just add another scoop and water to make the teas cost effective. Some varieties you can mix creating a different flavour. I add honey as a sweetener, as their sweeternes are all very nice, but adds to the cost in their upselling. In the summer, slices of fruit can be added with ice to make a refreshing and edible punch.

I find medications dehydrating and need to drink larger than average quantities, and this is a way of doing it without a caffeiene overload and just sitting and drinking a pot of tea with a book can be a distraction to the pain. Although not promoted I have found drinding tisaines has helped with weight loss.

Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good to me
Holding the world inside
Now the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
And it’s dark again

I haven't had that experience with Chamomile tea, I've had quite lovely results with it, feeling calm before bed.

In my experience it takes trying different teas to see which ones resonate with you. I've personally been attracted to fresh ginger, cinnamon and clove tea at night after eating, helping the body to digest food! if you love the smell and the taste and it's not too stimulating I'd say go towards those!

Rooibos is lovely and "sleepytime" is quite nice from celestial seasonings.

Hi Peter
There is Black Tea, Green Tea, White Tea and Red Tea, tea blends, herbal teas, tisaines; caffeine and caffeine free tea; faux tea; hydrating tea and dehydrating tea; and regional tea.
They say "oils ain't oils," tea aint tea. Just as there are many different flavours, blends and types of coffee, there is with tea.
Be brave.... go forth and discover.... :) LOL

(I won't start on chocolate, but there is chocolate tea, and tea infused chocolate!)
