Which types of tea do you drink after dinner/evening

There was a post further down about tea in the morning, thought I would ask about tea in the evening. Morning vs. evening has different considerations (morning: need to wake up, empty stomach, time available, etc.; evening: what was for dinner, caffeine and sleep, is it summer (hot) /winter (cold), etc.).

For a while now I've been alternating days between Rou Gui in my yixing, TGY, or Da Yu Ling (new for me, still learning). From time to time I may have Long Jing or Bi Loo Chun (want to try Dan Cong too).

Would like to know how one's meal affects one tea choice afterwards (light meals = lighter tea?).

If I had to pick only one tea it would be sencha, though I seem to enjoy it more in the morning than in the evening.

Unfortunately for me I'm not very considerate when it comes to picking my evening tea, often I'm left wide awake at 4am! Haha

But after dinner a nice green tea is soothing and invigorating, but not so much that it would keep me awake later when I go to sleep! A high roast TGY is almost like coffee after a meal, and someone's I would go for that. Later in th evenings I would enjoy a white tea if I had any on hand because it always seems to relax me!

If dinner is strong with bold flavours then a black, pu'er or darker oolong would be a good choice for me. If it's a light meal like a salad, then a green, white or light oolong would go nicely :)

If caffeine keeps you tossing, Hojicha is great in the evenings since the roasting lowers it significantly. The caramel-toasty flavor is also a great way to clear your palate after a meal.

Oolong tea, green tea, and sometimes Darjeeling black tea. If it's very late rooibos, hibiscus, or chamomile as none have caffeine but they're not teas.

I like Hojicha in the evening as well. The woodsy aroma, it being colder months now, and the warmth seeping from the cups make for a relaxing evening.
