    Herbal teas should not be consumed willy nilly. Herbs are medicine, and act as such on the body. Many herbal teas should not be drank by certain individuals. You'd be surprised at the contraindications of herbs.

    But remember that tea also contains l-thianine which creates calm alertness. Green tea has been shown to lower both blood pressure and blood sugar. The average amount of caffeine in a cup of tea is 27 mg whereas in coffee it's 80 mg.
