    How to Get Rid of Tea Drunk?

    Combined with my own experience as well as other tea lovers' opinions, we do think it's best to consume some food as soon as you can if you feel a bit of tea drunk.


    The best food we highly recommend is meat, which can more easily contribute to the feelings of satiety than others.

    High-sugar Candies

    It aims to cause your blood-sugar level to rise, making it less likely for you to experience any adverse effects from drinking tea.

    Try Some Tea and Food Pairings

    The delicious tea makes it a great match with any snacks, for those who like sweet or salty snacks, they are always to be a great help to prevent or get rid of tea drunk.

    Drinking Syrup (tángshuǐ: sweet water)

    Except for eating some food, syrup is to considered as a wise choice when get tea drunk, it includes a cup of water with honey, brown sugar or rock candy.

    How to Avoid Tea Drank?

    • Onari :


      Is it normal for the 'tea drunk' feeling to involve coughing or pain/soreness in the throat? Or, is that something atypical? I have experienced tea drunk symptoms which don't involve coughing or pain/soreness in the throat, such as light-headedness, dizziness, a feeling like being drunk. But, then there are a few teas which have caused me to cough or have irritated my throat. Sometimes, it was painful. So, I wonder if those teas are of poor quality, or if this is a normal reaction. Any perspective you can provide is greatly appreciated, thank you!

      Hi Onari,

      Thanks for your question.

      Since you are not irritated to all kind of tea, so I think it may due to the tea which makes you coughing and painful on throat have low quality or pesticide exceeded.

      Besides, here is another article about the tea drunk, http://www.teavivre.com/info/drink-more-will-be-repercussions/, which may help you a little.
