Hmmm, I think that drinking tea prior to a workout is a good idea. Just as long as you are making sure to stay hydrated. This may be all mental, but atleast for me, drinking tea helps to revitalize my mind. It helps to wake me up from my "sleepiness" and live in the present. This is why I will sometimes drink a cup of tea and meditate before I go in for a long training session, exam, or tournament. It helps me to feel more at peace I guess. Though I don't drink just any old cheap tea from the grocery market, I actually bring back my own tea from China whenever I visit my family there. I usually drink Pu-ehr tea. It is very good, but quite expensive relative to other teas.

So basically, I personally would recommend to drink a cup of good quality tea before a long day, just make sure to stay hydrated...maybe drink some gatorade beforehand as well. ^_^

Tea really helps me out. I used to drink coffee all the time, but it caused major headaches. Besides TKD, I'm also a competitive swimmer and the chlorine made it so bad that my coach had to take me out of the pool. Since then, she has forbidden me from coffee while in season. On the other hand, tea doesn't cause that and it helps revitalize me. It's my new coffee.

Didn't you say you were 17? And drinking coffee at that young age? Man times have changed. At that age I never needed caffeine to get moving. Way to go starbucks..

My grandmother got me on it when I was 5. I come from a family of coffee drinkers. Yeah...such a great influence. Back then, coffee only caused me to calm down. I miss my old reaction a bit. I'm sorta glad I got off of it though. I have way more energy for anything that is active.

Hmmm you guys are definitely right that caffeine have different effects on different ppl

I remember in teh last year of highschool, many nights i drank super super strong (i added like 5 tspoons of expresso to the cup lol) coffee to keep me up to study...then half an hour later I felt sleepy and slept with no problem at all

No addiction AT ALL...I swear

But I also remember earlier this year I did the same but with normal dose of coffee, and couldn't sleep until 6am

My personal advice is to avoid it if you dont' like it.
eg. If you extremely hate coffee, but drank it anyway to energize, you wouldn't feel as good as if you didn't drink it at all
I actually hate coffee, but love virtually any type of tea

Just remember that some teas help with healing of sickness and injuries - but you can decide for yourself whether they help with exercise or promote "weakness"
