After chatting to a friend recently, I realised just how much I depended on my at least three-a-day tea and coffee fix. I drank it even though it gives me palpitations and disrupts my sleep pattern, but have always seen meeting up for a coffee as a social event. With the memories of a fluttery heart rate and sleepless nights in my head, I went out and bought some caffeine free tea bags.
During the first day of replacing my usual flat whites with these ‘virgin’ bags, my head was absolutely throbbing. Today, however, I have had no headaches and actually have more energy, if this is possible? The tea bags do not, admittedly, taste as rich as my old brew, but it’s worth it for sound sleep I had last night.
