Why would drinking Green Tea before bedtime help or not one to sleep?

Update:

I always drink Green Tea in the morning to wake up, but for some reason I also have been drinking it sometimes too when cant sleep and it seems to help, why would that be? Is it known for this?

    Green tea has quite a bit of caffeine in it, so drinking it before bed would be a bad idea.

    In addition, tea is a diuretic, so that would also make it a bad idea to drink before bed -- unless you like getting up in the middle of the night to go pee.

    Green tea? No.

    Camomile, mint, and/or lavender teas might help though.

    tea has caffeine..some people are sensitive to caffeine and it would interfere with sleep.

    I never heard of anyone drinking tea to help them sleep unless its an herbal tea that has sedative properties, like chamomile tea.

    Green Tea has caffeine in it therefore would not be good to drink before bedtime.
