I had to go off tea for a while a couple years back. I was unfortunately in a situation where the only tea I had access to was brewed really strong and oversteeped. The thing about tea not giving you the jitters and keeping you up all night? yeah....wasn't happening at that point.
I'd been hitting the tea as a comfort thing, hoping to calm my nerves and get a bit of that peace I generally get with tea. The 4-5 cups a day I was having for that couple months was making it so I was wound tighter than a watch-spring. Hell, after 2 months of NO tea, I tried having a single cup in the morning to help wake me up... I STILL got insomnia from it. Insomnia and crankiness.
Brewing my OWN tea has never done that to me. geesh
