I haven’t posted on Steepster in a while because I am now on a self-inflicted caffeine hiatus until further notice, hopefully at least a month. This weekend I very much over-did it with two grande tea lattes from Sbux and kept the teabag in both of them for the duration of drinking them…let’s just say the result was a massive panic attack (also from missing the bf, who has been out of town for over a week) and insomnia from 2 am until around 5:45 am that night. Worse is that I know how caffeine sensitive I am, and it just was not a great choice on my behalf to have that much in one day. Not the best time I’ve had haha, ended up skipping Monday morning from work to sleep ugh. So now I am off caffeine and on herbal teas only, cold turkey. I have also been making some lifestyle changes this week in terms of what I have been eating and it has been positive as well, not as many carbs and many more greens ftw!
This is the tea I chose for today to help me deal with caffeine withdrawal (pounding headache, general crankiness) and a weather change headache on top of that one. This tea is still quite good, I am running low in the tin and might restock at one point. It is a relaxing ginger blend with lots of spice. Now to sit and fester with my caffeine withdrawal and keep on working on a computer screen, very good for headaches. Sigh. At least it’s sunny outside. I miss actual tea :( see previous notes on this tea!
