Therefore, before you start drinking tea daily, it is recommended to inform your doctor if you have any restrictions or health problems.

Your article about the various kinds of tea was interesting. I would never have thought to make lettuce tea or know that drinking too much of it could be harmful.

I drink tea occasionally, especially when I'm feeling under the weather. One of my favorites is lemongrass and lemon tea flavor because I am a fan of these two ingredients. In the meantime, my husband loves lavender tea. He usually drinks before bed. Thanks for sharing the article. I'm sure it helps and guides those who are battling insomnia problems.
