haven't had one of those yet.

Me neither.


I kind of experienced something similar after the one time I got the buzz with a sencha. Two hours long of headaches and general dizziness. Can't say if that's what you're referring to, but it definitely felt like a hangover.

We had our exterior painted by two painters, an owner and his side-kick. It was July and the climate was quite nice. The painters liked tea and would sometimes stay for extended (5 hour) tea sessions.

We had one tea session that included a number of young puerhs. The next day the owner told me the side-kick was so tea-high that when he went to the van to leave he tried to go in the rear side door that held all the ladders. The owner had to yell to him, "You are welcome to sit here up front with me!"

In the end, our house got the best paint job ever!

Never had a tea hangover, but I have felt like absolute crap after drinking Lipton on an empty stomach! I told my mom and she looked like me like I was a total lightweight. She drinks black (red) tea with milk at least three times a day!

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

I think theanine withdrawal must be a significant part of the tea hangover. I tend towards a weekly binge, and while the decreased alertness the next day is significant, I can be cranky, frustrated, and impatient, even when demands on that alertness are low.

Would you consider yourself someone who is sensitive to medicines/other altering substances? Im not sure Ive actually been "high" from tea. I get mild relaxation and enjoyment from it but I know from my past, I have a huge tolerence to substances.

I couldn't generalize, but I am half your size :mrgreen:
What I was alluding to on the other post was the reinforcing effects of drinking with other people. You're having a good time, and encouraging each other to drink more. I've sometimes tried to keep our circle's sessions to three teas, but four is the norm and five is not out of the question. And my longest session was 7+ hours, 20+ teas.... No tea drunk? Try harder! :lol:

Thats true! Maybe I need to find a group who will drink tea with me rather than beer! :lol:

I've definitely noticed that drinking tea with close friends will enhance the qi buzz. For me it's not necessarily the amount we drink either. I can drink the same amount with a couple people that I would alone but the euphoric buzz will be more pronounced. It's just sharing the moment and feeding off each other is naturally going to make you feel good :)
