I like chamomile at night, especially with wildflower honey. Yum!
Herbal teas like chamomile actually aren't really tea at all, they don't contain tea leaves and so no caffeine. I think red tea (rooibos) is also caffeine free, I like that one.

I have unbearable anxiety that Xanax wonít even take care of when I drink peppermint mocha lattes. Thatís the only type of drink I truly have issues with and I have no idea why.

Yes I get some reactions from caffeine too - although tea contains caffeine it does not seem to affect me like coffee.

Chamomile sounds like a healthy alternative!

I can drink coffee all day and night and it has no effect at all.

Noe that I mostly drink tea, having a strong cup of coffee can rally jack me up and trigger some unpleasant anxiety that reminds me in some ways of a bad mixed episode. I really have to watch it.
