Some people are afraid of insomnia and only drink light tea, even never drink tea. People often say that insomnia when drinking tea is due to the caffeine in the tea. Caffeine is a double-edged sword, it can refresh and invigorate people without drowsiness, but when it is time to fall asleep, it is insomnia. However, drinking tea and insomnia cannot be generalized.
Why is drinking tea so refreshing?

First of all we have to make sure that tea is refreshing because it contains caffeine, that is what excites you. The higher the caffeine content, the easier it will excite you.

What does the level of caffeine have to do with it?
The content of caffeine in tea is mainly determined by many factors, such as variety, growing conditions, picking season, picking standards, processing, etc.

The caffeine in the tea is relatively stable and will not lose much due to the fermentation process. Many people feel that green tea has higher caffeine, because the tea polyphenols in green tea are not oxidized, and the caffeine is in a free state; and after the tea leaves are fermented, the tea polyphenols will wrap the caffeine and have less stimulation to the stomach But the content has not decreased.

Essentials for drinking tea at night:
When the tea leaves are brewed for about 3 minutes, most of the caffeine in the tea leaves has been dissolved into the tea water. At this time, the tea has obvious refreshing effects and makes people excited. If you are afraid of insomnia, don’t drink the first tea soup, let alone strong tea.

1. Drink lighter tea. 【Reduce caffeine】
Second, drink sweet tea. [Theanine is more, and it has been scientifically proven that theanine is more beneficial to sleep than medicine, without any side effects]

3. Drink more fermented tea.
So how do you choose tea?
Many teas can meet the above two requirements.
For example, black tea [it is best to choose fu brick tea and it has been stored for many years];
For example, Pu-erh [preferably the old tree Pu-erh preserved for many years];

There is also white tea [it is best to choose Shoumei, storage and oxidation for more than three years], and the process does not kill green, theanine remains more, and the taste is softer and lighter.
In addition, the tolerance to caffeine also varies from habit to physique. Some people drink tea all day without insomnia; some people suddenly drink tea in large quantities or on an empty stomach, they will have symptoms such as palpitation, dizziness, and limb weakness (this is called "drunk tea"). As for caffeine, as frequency and dosage increase, people's tolerance will also increase.
