Hello from Los Angeles!

Postby Sugarmint » Jan 17th, '09, 17:36

I was addicted to coffee for years until my doctor took me off it. Luckily, it wasn't the caffeine that was the culprit. So I found another source of caffeine, tea! It was tough getting over the coffee addiction but I did it. Now, I am a total tea convert. My conversion started when my meditation teacher introduced to puerh. I first tried camel's breath although rose toucha is now my favorite. I'm still very new to tea so if anyone has a puerh suggestion, I'd appreciate it.

In trying different types of tea and different brands, I found out that some brands have a laxative effect on me. I'm pretty sure, it was the brand and not type of tea. Has someone had this same experience? I am really curious to know.

Have a great day/night!

The only way in which I've heard of tea having a laxative effect is through caffeine. Perhaps you've had some strong stuff indeed!

In any event, welcome to good ol' TeaChat. Pull up a stool and have a sip.
