I guess the 39 bucks is worth it then.

Hmm, I've never ordered from Pure Puer so I'm not sure :? Although I can tell you that I like most of Menghai and Haiwan's shupu. They are pretty reliable.

So anything from then I guess? Maybe someone else who knows more about the vendor can give you some more advice.

Haha :lol: Guess I don't then, because I usually have no problem getting to sleep.

However, in my younger days I drank a Red Bull almost every morning. That might have something to do with it. :shock:

Mugicha is nice but it's roasted flavor isn't for everyone, I personally find it extremely refreshing as an iced drink, the barley naturally has a little bit of sweetness to it. Def. worth a try, I get it here:

Oops, missed your question Plant Partaker. Sorry about that!

I have had ready-to-drink bottles of mugicha from Japanese markets and I find it very refreshing on hot days. I'm afraid I don't know a ton of vendors- I tend to get mine from Lupicia (lupiciausa.com) or pick up bags from the Japanese market.

My favorite at night is actually a tisane. I love licorice root or dandelion tea right before bed. I find that the excessive amounts of sugar actually lead me to a sugar crash and I fall asleep very soundly. That doesn't work for everyone though, so another option I know many people like is mint. I know that if you have a caffeine sensitivity that you really shouldn't be drinking tea of any kind before bed unless it is a tisane.
