Tea, anyone?

I have a severe case of insomnia...which means, my usual bed time would be around 2-3am. No matter how early I go to bed, I'll always (or most of the time) end up staring endlessly at the ceiling or counting sheep in my head. I've tried sleeping pills, milk, bananas...even reading yawn-worthy techie books, but none would seem to work for more than a couple of days.

So when I chanced upon a section in Healthy Options where all sorts of Teas are located, it's no surprise that I'll be picking this up first:

yep, these are not our usual tea bags in boxes...

handy packaging

round teabags
no string to help one identify what kind of tea it is and aid in removing the teabag from the cup

i've tried this variant for days and surprisingly, i was able to drink it without adding some honey or lemon. did it work? yep, during the first few days but like the others, it just lost its powers (on me, at least). but i would recommend this to those who don't have a severe case of insomnia like mine. when i first tried it, it really made me feel relaxed and my eyes felt heavy and ready to doze off to Dreamland. I've tried Chamomile tea from other brands but this is the only one that worked for me.

for 6 round teabags, this tin can costs Php250++ which is kinda expensive. but if it worked for someone like me, it might work for you too...and that's what matters anyway.

i still prefer those tea bags with a string, though.

How about you? Do you have a sleeping disorder too? And what do you do about it?
