I’m only starting to really brew looseleaf green tea as of late last week, and hate myself for not doing it frequently earlier. There’s the classic “pour boiling water into a teacup” thing which I only learned earlier this year. Plus, tea seems to work better than Adderall on me (I don’t know what happened to my response to Adderall, I seem to “freeze” on it more than before, but it’s okay if I just need tea)
Tea is one of the most potent pro-longevity interventions for so many reasons, such as appetite suppression. Even early Taoists associated it with “eternal youth”
I also fill the container to the very brim with leaves, which massively increases the dose of caffeine, but tea is safer than coffee in large amounts.

I drank so much tea yesterday that I could barely sleep last night, and taking 350-440mg melatonin also did not make me sleep much, and feel hyperalert today
[this puts my nicotine overdose last year in better context too, because I took heavy doses of melatonin when i did this too]. I dose heavily on melatonin for doris-loh reasons [it’s one of the safest molecules ever]
