Yeah that's it. There's something to those multiple infusions, because when I drink something like two cups of earl grey, and then a cup of oolong a little later, all that happens is that I can tell I have a lot of caffeine in me. It does not give me a headache though.
With Oolong when I infuse it many times, the effects kind of just creep up on me. I feel fine, and I don't even feel like I do after drinking coffee, but then I get a bad long lasting headache. This only happens when I drink 6 cups though, and on an empty stomach.
As for stomach upsets, I don't get them from tea. Well I get a very short lasting stomach upset sometimes after drinking Pu-erh, but for the most part tea usually makes my stomach feel better.
