The Big Tea Switch

So I’d been doing tea instead of coffee for two-and-a-half days, but got coffee with the breakfast I had delivered today and it’s punching me in the brain. Before the tea switch, I’d been doing decaf-to-caffeinated at home at around a 2:1 or even 3:1 ratio for months, but with the pandemic lockdown I’d been drinking too much every single day and it was wrecking (sorry here) my excretory system. Hence I’ve been doing a tea thing, and even though it’s been caffeinated black tea, and despite my the decaf ratio I’d been doing on coffee, my system has settled down. What I didn’t expect was that after just two-and-a-half days, a fully caffeinated coffee would make my head spin. Tea, though, ends up being more expensive than coffee, so I need to look at bulk tea that I can still just make pots of essentially the way I’ve been doing: four teabags in the coffeemaker carafe, water double-run through the coffeemaker, steep for awhile; then I drink that pot over the course of the day, which is less tea than I was having coffee every day beforehand.
