Peppermint tea in the afternoon

Japan
September 28, 2017 3:34am CST
I don't drink anything with caffeine in it after noon, because it keeps me awake at night. I was very sleepy right after school at 3:30, and I knew I had to be in a two-hour rehearsal. So I went to the staff lounge and found some peppermint tea bags. There is always hot water and various tea bags in there. So I filled my thermos with peppermint tea, and it really helped keep me awake. I need to remember this for future reference! Do you have something without caffeine that helps when you are sleepy but need to keep working?

I drink coffee if feeling tired and my sleep is not affected. I feel sleepy after I drink coffee.I wonder why others cannot sleep after a coffee drink.

I think the caffeine bothers some people's sleep. I know my dad drank decaffeinated coffee and he slept well. Do you drink decaffeinated coffee? i drink caffeine all day drinking iced tea, but even without it, i would not sleep without taking my prescribed medication for sleep. So why stop drinking it?

I LOVE peppermint tea. I grow my own. Sometimes I drink ice cold water as a pick-me-up. I never, ever have caffeine.

A few years ago, I had several different varieties of mint in a container garden but only the lemon balm is left now. I love fresh peppermint tea.

I usually drink water if I am sleepy to avoid the sleepiness I get from being dehydrated.

I usually drink coffee if I want to stay awake but too often that will make me sleepy. I like peppermint tea but I do not drink it very often because it is a diuretic.

Ginger tea helps me to keep awake, no caffeine at all
