I. Tips for people with different physical conditions

The ritual of making and drinking tea has been practiced for thousands of years with good reason. A comforting cup may ease morning sickness, and even make for a shorter labor. But for some people who have some special healthy problems, teas are potentially dangerous and should be avoided.

Neurasthenia patients:
Strong tea is not suitable for people who are suffering from neurasthenia especially in the afternoon and evening because of caffeine included in tea leaves can affect your sleep. The best way is to drink flower tea in the morning, green tea in the afternoon and drink decaffeinated tea in the evening.

should be careful of strong tea. Caffeine remaining in milk can make baby excited (cry) and not easy to sleep.

Gastric ulcer patients
For those who suffering from stomach ulcers, it is a good idea to avoid tea that contains caffeine because it promotes the secretion of stomach acids. Stomach acid is often the cause of ulcers and can cause stomach ulcer symptoms worse and delayed healing of existing stomach ulcers.

Keep away from strong tea when you are drunk
Strong tea may make the human body excessively excitable and can badly affect the cardiovascular as well as the nervous system. For people who are drunk, drinking overly strong tea may induce heart and blood pressure disease. And also tea can affect kidney function and increase the burden on kidney.

The elder
Raw tea is unfavorable to older people. Because of its peculiar processing method, most of compounds included in fresh tea leaves have not been eliminated and it gives off a strong smell, so can cause abdominal discomfort for the aged.

Say no to tea under six circumstances

Drinking tea on an empty stomach
It’s not uncommon for a person drinking green tea to experience nausea and an upset stomach. This is most likely to occur if you drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The culprit seems to be green tea tannins which may stimulate the stomach to secrete more acid. This is a particular problem for people who have peptic ulcer disease or acid reflux problems. And even more,
it also leads to “tea drunkenness”. Some people compare it to a strong caffeine buzz, side-effects include shakiness, nausea, strong dizziness and other unpleasant sensations associated with consuming excess caffeine. One possible way to relief those unpleasant sensations is to drink it only after eating a meal or to drink some fruit juice and sugar water.

Drinking tea before or after meal
Maybe you are familiar with the habit that people like drinking tea after a meal, but form a perspective of a healthy nutritionist, this habit is not advisable. Drinking tea just after a meal (within 20 minutes) restricts the body’s absorption of iron (Fe) consumed with the food. That is to say if you drink tea just after the meal, your body will not sufficiently benefit from the meat you ate just now, because a substance called tannin existing in tea will bond to the iron, bring negative effects on body’s ability to absorb this important mineral.

Drinking tea before bed

Tea has caffeine and caffeine keeps you awake.so if you want to have a good sleep, say “no” to tea water when you are going to bed. This is true, especial for fresh green tea. However, all above is not absolute. It depends on how sensitive you are to caffeine, and what type of tea you are drinking.

Love Geye Cha

Geye cha refers to teas has been brewed the day before, there is a great deal of bacteria bred and multiplied in it, especially when it has been stale. Geye Cha for too long, most vitamins have been lost, and the infusion of protein, carbohydrates, etc. will be bacteria, fungi breeding nourishment, so people often think Geye Cha is dad for drinking.

  • Interesting advice, but the theory that tea could disrupt the absorption of iron is actually not entirely true. If the person consumes a balanced diet that includes foods rich in Vitamin C (including fruits, leafy vegetables, etc) then tannins in tea are less capable of binding to the non-heme iron present in non-animal based sources of iron. In the case of heme iron found in animal products, tea tannins are not capable of interfering with iron absorption.

      Drinking tea can decrease the absorption of iron from plant-based sources, but have non-effect on heme iron in animal. We have corrected the information in the article.

      Thanks for your question.

      Additional studies have shown that long term use of appropriate amounts of pu-erh teas have the potential to lower LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and increase HDL levels (the good cholesterol).

      It’s said that drinking around 3-4 cups a day is good for you body. But, if you drinking too much tea in a day, as with overindulgence of any kind, can bring negative consequences.

      Hope it helps.

  • Hi this article has good information, I never suspected tea (which I am a devoted fan)could be the reason for stomach problems, tinnitus in my ears, dizziness and feeling my stomach was bloated. I have all these symptoms but never would have suspected tea as the culprit. I will try and reduce my intake of tea and will be glad if my symptoms go away. Bryan
