Well I slept better, it was not lthe knockout liquid I had hoped for but some improvement is better than none.
I did have some wacky dreams but like most dreams as soon as I wake I can't remember them.
So it was a sucsess and I will continue to drink this tea and enjoy not only the tea, which is very good but also the better sleep that it brings. Thank you @pigh for the recomendation .

Haha! Super! I have the luxury of no drugs, no drink ... so sleep is always good. With this tea, I did wake as if I'd had an even better night of sleep and so was hopeful that would translate to others. But yes, there's something psychoactive in that tea!

Well I only drink once in a blue moon, unfortunately I don't have the luxury of no prescription drugs, how I wished I didn't have to take them but I do.
My sleep was better and better is good. P.

The makers of Yorkshire Tea (my preferred brew) say otherwise: https://www.yorkshiretea.co.uk/brew-news/the-great-milk-debate
From the linked article:

...“So when people ask me how to make the perfect cup of tea my answer is always simple; use freshly boiled water, brew to preferred strength (we recommend up to 4 minutes for optimum infusion)and add your milk or sugar (if you must) to your taste...
Hell, I'm a knuckledraggin' Yank who doesn't even drink hot tea and even I knew that! :D :p ;)

As regards tea, give me an Arnold Palmer any day. I'll let you look that one up.

I remember having this debate in uni with a few of my course mates. I insisted boiling water is the way forwards, as you can't truly make a cup of tea on the top of Everest!

To add hot water to a cup of milk + tea bag is nigh-on blasphemy to me.

Pretty much the same goes for me!

Really enjoying a consignment from Gently Stirred ...

I got some 'Pink Peony' (Chinese White Peony with rose buds), some Malawian Thyolo Estate 'White Peony' and some 'Red Peony' from the same estate. All lovely!

The Chinese 'Pink Peony' just has that edge that only really good Chinese can do, it's that certain extra tingle and bite that is just lacking from the African 'White Peony'. That said, the African really is nice - very close indeed and a really refreshing drinker. The 'Red Peony' is a slightly darker fired tea which is somewhere between a 'White Peony' and a 'Shou Mei' (same tea as 'White Peony', just lesser grade leaves).

I've also just finished a Malawian Thyolo 'Dark Fired' tea, which is verging on a red tea. Really good! Lovely big leaf teas, all of them.
