Why cant't I sleep when I drink tea?
I like drink coffee in the morning (like to feel better) and then tea before to go to bed (to sleep well). It must be logically but for me it s quite different... When I drink tea at night I can t fall asleep half night then. Couple times I drunk tea in the morning and felt good. And couple times I was drinking coffee before to sleep and was sleeping pretty well... Why is that?
The main question is not about tea, about coffee... Why can I sleep better after coffee than after tea if coffee has more caffeine...

Tea contains theophylline. Personally, I have trouble falling asleep after drinking a fermented tea with supper (10 minutes, instead of five) but no trouble if I drink green tea (or decaf chicory coffee). I REALLY had trouble when I was in Yemen. Not only the coffee but the (fermented) tea kept me wide-eyed for much of the night.

Don't drink tea with caffeine. Caffeine will keep you awake. It's a stimulant. Drink herbal tea instead. A lot of people drink chamomiIe tea to heIp them sIeep.
