how do I get that tea glow?

I drink a lot of tea-- two or three cups a day, black with milk and sugar. Maybe one in twenty cups of tea will taste sublime and leave me with a pleasant sort of afterglow that lasts for an hour or so-- not a caffeine buzz at all. The other nineteen cups are just tea. How do I get that tea glow more reliably?

Cheap tea never works, nor does green tea (which I do enjoy anyway, without milk or sugar). The more expensive the tea the more likely it seems to be to do the job, and brewing it really strong (with more leaves rather than a longer time) also helps a bit. But I just can't seem to get that very special tea experience consistently. Can you?
