Caffeine is both a great tool and can also be a great scourge depending on who you are talking to and what you are talking about. For many people who are using tea to calm themselves down, it is the perfect combination of flavors and aromas, but some people use it as a tool to work harder or more diligently. This is one of the reasons why caffeine has become such an addiction for many people across the globe.
Some people would love to have the warm, delicious tasting tea without the caffeine and that is possible with all of the globalization that has occurred in the past 20 years. Now it is possible to get teas, such as red rooibos and others, that are full of flavor and have a relaxing aroma without the caffeine. If this is something that entices you, it’s best for you to focus on getting natural or herbal teas instead of traditional variations from Asia.
The herbal tea also includes other options besides rooibos. There is a plant called honeybush, which offers a sweet flavor similar to the rooibos. Both of these are from South Africa and they have been used for hundreds (if not thousands) of years by the local communities. If you find the tea at a local shop, you’ll see that it is completely free from caffeine.
The same holds true for something like chamomile and lemon balm as well. Both of these are native to regions of Europe and lemon balm is a particular favorite in the Mediterranean region. You’ll find that Bulgarians and other coastal people love lemon balm in order to sooth them and provide a relaxant. Many people even liken the feeling of lemon balm to the most strong sedatives because it is so powerful for relaxing your entire body.
