I've been drinking loose leaf for a few years now though when I first wake up I usually make an espresso (nespresso, for convenience). I have one with the same breakfast on most days (before I ride or swim)...and now to get a little personal, it works well for a visit to the bathroom
Although the prep of the nespresso is quick (a requirement at this time, before I head out for morning exercise...before work), the machine is loud and sometimes my wife is awoken by the noise.
So, because I love tea, and because it's certainly quiet to prepare, I may start having tea shortly after waking up. However, from the times I do have tea first thing in the morning, I don't recall it working so well at prompting the bathroom visit.
Anyone have some info on tea and it's role in encouraging bathroom visits, and what teas may work better?
When I do drink tea first thing it's usually green (fukamushi)...
