Ugh..I got a crazy migraine today..was not fun, pretty sure it was weather related, finally had a Tylenol after having some matcha for caffeine and it is mostly gone. Anyways, I am having this tea because I find that I feel better when I have at least one cup of tea with milk in it a day, whether it’s due to the calcium or something, it seems to help anxiety, head hurting, etc haha. So tonight, this has milk and brown sugar in it. And it is good, as always. Hoping my headache doesn’t come back anytime soon..although it seems like it probably will, right before bed. Ugh, gotta love weather changes! See previous notes on this tea :)

I had a terrible headache yesterday and I think it was weather related also. Hoping for some sunshine tomorrow! :)

MissLena

Mine definitely was! It was sunny and really nice out, then some crazy clouds rolled in and it got super windy..the pressure was also dropping immensely :( I’m hoping it stabilizes tomorrow, even if it isn’t sunny! Hope your headache does not return!

Good you know to have caffeine for migraine. I like puerh for migraines too because it doesn’t upset the stomach (I get nausea migraines). Try it sometime.

MissLena

Ah yes I should have had that today! My stomach was a bit upset from it, that probably would have helped, i’ll keep it in mind for the next one (usually get one during every major weather change or if a storm comes)

I didn’t know it was good for headaches.

I had a neurologist who had the same kind of migraines as mine tell me about the importance of caffeine to help ward off migraines and the importance of doing things that make you happy every day.

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
