How to Decrease the Chances of Tea Causing Adverse Effects While Drinking

Avoid freshly-picked teas

First flush tea leaves in spring is usually of the best quality and highest grade of tea. Because these teas have been stored for less than a month, they contain much higher levels of caffeine, active alkaloids and other aromatic substances than older teas do. This increase in chemicals can stimulate the central nervous system and stomach, which can cause one to feel inebriated. Therefore, it’s better to wait at least a half month before drinking.

warm teapot

Never drink tea on an empty stomach

warm teapot

If you drink tea on an empty stomach, you will not only dilute gastric juices so that you aren’t as able to digest foods as well, but the high absorbency rate of water in the tea will also cause your body to absorb caffeine easily causing you to experience dizziness, stress and possibly even neurasthenia in your hands or feet. If you do feel a bit tea drunk, you can consume some high-sugar candies, snacks, sugar water, or meat as soon as you can to relieve this symptom.

Keep Your Tea Light

People who seldom drink tea should keep your tea light since the excessive theophylline and caffeine contain in strong tea will both affect your mental state and physical health.

Try Not To Overindulge

Drinking too much tea, as with overindulgence of any kind, can bring negative consequences. Although tea is a very healthy drink with plenty of health benefits, if you drink more than 10g of tea daily, it can irritate the stomach and esophagus lining, especially if you drink hot tea, which can lead to ulcers, acid reflux, can increase the symptoms of GERD and IBS and can make you feel slightly intoxicated.

warm teapot

It is also a good idea to take your tea with a snack so that you have something to help absorb the tea in your stomach. Salty and sweet food can not only provide sodium for your body, but also cause your blood-sugar level to rise, making it less likely for you to experience any adverse effects from drinking your tea.

When you drink tea in the proper times in the proper amounts, tea can be the healthiest drink you can have for your body and mind, and you can enjoy the many benefits of tea by following the above healthy tea guidelines.

  • Its been helpful to read about tea and its effects. I have been taking tea on an empty stomach which results to stomach cramps and gases after an hour, dizziness and fatigue too. This occurs only in the mornings. Should forget tea in my beverages?

    • TeaVivre

      Thank you for your questions.
      You should avoid drink tea on an empty stomach, especially in the morning. Due to your don’t take food almost a whole night, it much longer than noon or evening.
      You can take some food, even a simple meal. However, you should have breakfast for your healthy rather than give up tea in order to don’t have breakfast.
      Hope it helps.

  • Having drink very strong tea for 40 years i fear having read all the bloggs it may not be doing me any good! I gave really bad stomach pains at night when I lie down, don’t get much sleep! Had the test and the doctors came up with ibs and redux! But the tablets only worked for a while! Tonight after my meal I had my regular hot leaf cup of tea, strong, just how I like it ! I have at least 6 mugs of tea a day. If I take your advice and drink 1hr after a meal and only 10g per day I’m hoping my symptoms improve

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your message.
      Tannic acid and theophylline not only will inhibit the secretion of gastric acid, but also will react with the protein in the food, produce some hard to digestible protein coagulum. The tea soup will dilute the stomach acid. It will made the food keep in your stomach much longer. All of them would increase the burden on your stomach.
      We still not sure if your stomach pains have related to the tea. You’d ask doctor for help about the disease and pain. But it’s wise to change your way to drink tea. At least it wouldn’t increase the burden on your stomach.
      Hope it helps!

  • I offently drink a very strong tea but i donot feel tired as by alcohol even i feel active and fresh for7-9 hours

      Thank you for your message.
      It’s a small probability event. It’s usually happen to someone whom don’t often drink tea or drinking tea on an empty stomach.
      Repercussions is the result of theophylline. It’s vary from person to person. Some person have much more resistance of theophylline. Then may not get repercussion.
      Hope it helps.

  • I have gone through the blog and understood that it speaks about what to do and what not to do with tea. But I’m looking for the solution when I had excess tea and have nerves cramps. Unfortunately, I could not find the response on this. Would appreciate if someone cud give me a response.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi, Dubby,

      Thanks for your question.

      Combining 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. Such as:
      1. Meat: it can easily contribute to the feelings of satiety than others.
      2. High-sugar candies: it aims to cause your blood-sugar level to rise.
      3. Some tea and food pairings.
      4. Drinking some sweet water, such as water with honey, brown sugar or rock candy.

      All this methods can help us to relief the symptoms of tea drunk.

      Hope it is helpful for you, and if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

      Because of the tea contains variety of alkaloids and caffeine, which has the excitement of the brain and promote the role of hyperthyroidism, and lead to repercussions.

  • I am a tea lover. I have been drinking tea all my life. I drink black Ceylon, Darjeeling or Taj Mahal. Four cups a day at least. And I never knew about the drunk effect util it happened to me. A few friends and I had a pijama party and we drank four teapots of six cups each. We felt light headed and started to laugh for every stupid thing we said. We were drunk and happy. Nex day we could’t believe that tea had made us drunk. Thank God there was no hangover and we felt perfectly well.

    • TeaVivre

      Thank you for your sharing.
      Yes, the tea can bring repercussions if we overindulgence. Tea is a good thing, but still need appropriate drink it.
      Wish you have a nice day.

  • So, during a meal or snack is recommended, while waiting one hour after a meal is recommended as well.

    Which is most important?

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      This to suggestions has different benefits.

      To have meal or snack while drinking tea can keep us from “drunk” of it.

      And to drink tea one hour after a meal can help us digest the food we’ve eaten.

      So if you want prevent yourself from tea drunk, the first suggestion will be recommended.

      Hope it helps.

  • I’ve always loved tea. When I was younger I noticed I felt “weird” after drinking a cup (cold or hot). I thought it was because of the caffeine since I didn’t know anything about tannins at the time. When I got older I read a bit on tea and was introduced to the word tannins. I now believe it is because of tannins that I had a strange feeling after drinking tea. Now I am very careful not to “oversteep” the tea so as not to release too many tannins. As long as I brew the tea on the “lighter side I don’t have any problems. (I drink tea every day.) I have to stay away from pu-erh. No matter how I brew it, my system does not handle it well.

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      Tannins are a class of compounds in tea,which tend to have a bitter flavor and astringent properties. Generally speaking, the longer you brew tea, the more tannins will be released and the bitterer the tea will be. Study shows tannins have both positive and negative effects on health, and like most substances, are healthiest in moderation.

      We don’t recommend to drink plenty of strong tea on a daily basis, because the stronger the tea, typically the higher the tannin and other contents. Tannins prevent your body from absorbing essential nutrients, like calcium, it also can easily cause headaches and insomnia as well as irritation and stomach problems.

      On the other hand, as you mentioned, to brew the tea on the “lighter” side is very appropriate. And if a particular tea or type of tea doesn’t agree with you , like pu-erh teas, I think you may probably avoid it. Because it’s a good rule to listen to your body too.

      Hope it helps!

  • I drink tea soo much… full glass not half… par day… I am addicted to it.I can’t give up it..and also I have soo much gas.. now I feel a little pain in stomach.. what to do??

  • Ani

    I never drink tea but since I joined this new company, I have been drinking around 5 cups a day and I felt light headed and dizzy in a training session. Is it due to the excessive tea?

    • TeaVivre

      Hello, Ani. Thank you for your question.
      According to your description, 5 cups of tea a day is not excessive, but it depend on the tea concentration. Usually, 5-10 gram per day will be better.

      We should also pay attention to the fellowing tips:
      1: Do Not Drink Tea While Hungry
      2: Never Drink Tea Which Is Too Hot
      3: Don’t Drink Tea Immediately Following a Meal
      4: Do not drink too much strong tea

      If you feel light headed and dizzy, you can try to reduce the amount of tea drinking, or reduce the concentration of tea.

      Hope it helps.

  • Your blog is helpful.Thanks.

    I was surprised that tea has also adverse effects. I usually have a cup of tea,but this morning I had 6 cups and that was after lunch. I was sitting on my couch when I suddenly felt dizziness and nauseated. I vomited 3 times and now Im afraid to drink tea again.That was awful.

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      It seems that you’ve drunk too much tea in a day, that’s why made you feel dizziness and nauseated. Everything should in a moderation, even to tea.

      Here I kindly suggest you limit your intake to three to four cups per day and follow some drinking tips, then you’ll have a better experience for it.

      Hope it helps.

  • Hi, I used to drink tea daily, probably about 4-5 cups per day and usually drank it when it was hot. All of a sudden it started to have bad effects on my stomach and whenever I drank a cup of say PG tips with milk it would send me into crippling pain for up to 3 hours. Visited a doctor about this and she said she didn’t know the cause as I drank wine which has tanins, drink milk by itself and drink different types of caffeine.
    I haven’t drank a cup in months because I’m not willing to go through the pain that comes with drinking English breakfast tea.
    I can drink Green Tea with no bad effects

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      English Breakfast tea is a blend of different kinds of black tea, usually from Ceylon and Darjeeling. So compared with Green tea, it has a higher amount of caffeine. Through tea is a very healthy beverage, we still need to follow some tips when drink it:

      1: Do Not Drink Tea While Hungry
      2: Never Drink Tea Which Is Too Hot
      3: Don’t Drink Tea Immediately Following a Meal
      4: Do not drink too much strong tea

      Hope it helps.

  • I am having dry tong and mouth since I stared drinking loose tea, but I like teas more than coffees…any suggestions?

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      The tea has substances called tanin and caffeine in it. It tricks your taste buds into thinking that you have a mouthful of saliva , so it shuts down the glands. When you breathe the air drawn in and out dries your mouth.

      Sometimes this can be a physiological reaction due to dehydration if your body is lacking in water content or electrolytes. The contents of the actual tea, the type of tea and fermentation level can all affect the effects of drinking tea.

      To reduce or eliminate this, drink purified or mineral water while enjoying your tea to keep your body properly hydrated and enjoy your tea thoroughly.

      Hope it helps.

  • Is it possible That if i drink to much sweet tea cause dizziness?

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your question.

      It says the caffeine in green tea speeds up the working of the nervous system and can cause severe effects like dizziness, increased blood pressure and increased heart rate. Everything in limited and monitored quantities can be beneficial and excessive use should be avoided, even tea is considered as a very health beverage in the world.

      Hope it’s helpful.

  • Dear Teavivre, this news is dreadful !
    It seems that tea has as many adverse effects as positive ones. I no longer know when to take my tea. It would seem that the traditional english morning and afternoon teas are the right way to go about it, with cakes or sandwiches. But I’m still confused as I love an early morning tea but this is not good ? Anyway it’s not good to snack between meals, it tires the digestion. So, neither before nor after nor during meals and Ï beleived that the chinese drink tea all day long and with their meals ! Is this not so ? Neither between meals as I might be hungry and certainly not tea alone on an empty stomach ! Please help as I love a hot tea five times a day : breakfast, mid morning, after lunch, 5 O’Clock, after dinner. I have noticed the effects you have described : stomach irritation, dizziness, nervosity.What tea should I drink and when ?
    Thanking you for your ravive.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Frances,

      Thank you for contacting us.
      I’m glad that you love teas.
      You may drink tea in the early morning, however I’d like to suggest you drink some mild, warm tea like black teas, ripened pu erh teas. Normally the English morning tea is also a black tea.
      And to drink the tea before your lunch. The tea will help with your digestion and make you hungry. In this way, you may have some snacks. Therefore this is not good for people who are on diet process.
      And during the meal, I’d like to suggest you don’t drink tea along with your food. At the meal time, soup is a better choice.
      For afternoon tea, just the same with mid morning tea. You drink tea along with snacks, and this is the time to add more energy to your body. because you may get hungry several hours after lunch.
      Some Chinese tea did drink tea all day. Tea is a just a drink for them. They may have a sip, and then have another sip after a while when they are thirsty.
      Not the same as your special tea time which you just drink tea, eat snacks etc.
      And every one has different reaction to teas. As long as your body didn’t have bad reaction to tea, you can drink it anytime you want.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Hi … I think I must be addicted to tea. I honestly cannot say how many mugs of tea I drink a day… If I was to guess I would think it would be close to 14… I use that as a substitute to food as it is easier for me to boil the kettle and make a tea then cook or make something… But lately I have been getting more palpatations and dizzy spells that are scaring me more now and I am very tired now…. I was going to go cold turkey this morning but I have only had 3 mugs since I was awake at 7.00am and it is now 11.00am…. I have been drinking water and had some warm water with lemon juice to help me go to the toilet (yes I am constipated)… So any ideas to lower this amount would be very helpful…. I love my tea but I think it is getting ridiculous….
    Love your website 🙂

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Monica,

      I’m glad that you enjoy tea that much.
      You mentioned that you suffered palpitations and dizzy spells recently, it sound like tea drunk. However, tea drunk will disappear in several hours. If you still suffer from palpitation, I’d like to suggest you go to see a doctor.
      If you drink a lot of tea on an empty stomach, or drink too much, you will be drunk easily. Please balance food and tea.
      Hope you get better soon.

  • Hello,

    While in Beijing, I bought a 25 year aged Pu-Erh tea. I have prepared exactly as they showed us in the tea house – remembering to rinse the leaves first. I drank 1 cup, 1 hour after lunch and suffered extreme diarrhea and gas that lasted almost 10 hours. Could I have bought a bad tea or have you heard of people having such extreme reaction?

    Your article had some other great insights – thank you!

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Christine,
      Thank you for your question.
      I’m sorry to hear the situation you met.
      Everyone has different reaction to a tea. And you’d better go to see the doctor, and find the reason of diarrhea.
      Did you drink the tea alone? if not, then what about other people? Do you still suffer the diarrhea, too?
      And you mentioned the you did the same as the people in tea house do, so I suppose that you drank the tea in the tea house without diarrhea or any bad effects. And since I didn’t drink the tea, or see the tea, I can’t say anything for sure. Hope you can understand.

  • This seems to explain a lot. Over Christmas I have drunk a lot of (black) tea and even today I have drunk around 5 cups (normally it’s 2 or 3 which is absolutely fine) and I have been experiencing bloating and nausea. It must be the tea as I have been eating very healthily! Thank you very much for this article. I will definitely cut down on the amount of tea I drink!!

  • I notice that you mention that some people become nauseous when they drink less oxidized teas. I have indeed found that I can only drink black tea, pu’erh tea and darker oolong teas without feeling extremely nauseous for several hours. But ligher ooling teas — and all green teas and white teas — seem to have this effect on me no matter what. I’ve tried a range of both Japanese and Chinese green teas, as well as greener Chinese oolongs to test this, and they all have the same effect. I’ve tried a range of different tea grades, as well as organic and non-organic. And I always steep according to the tea company’s instructions. I don’t drink it on an empty stomach or in large quantities, so I can’t figure out why it’s bothering me so much?
    I do like the taste of the darker Chinese teas best, but I’d like to be able to switch up my routine a bit from time to time with some lighter ones.

  • Wow I am worried for myself… I started drinking about 50 oz or more of oolong tea a day and now that I read this and it all makes sense…. The restless sleeping, the ringing in my ears and the bloating. I take fish pills, vitamins and birth control WITH the tea! I sometimes drink it fast, on an empty stomach, and sometimes hot(usually warm)! I just really don’t like plain water and I don’t know what to do because I think the oolong has aided my weight loss and improved my skin/acne 🙁

    • TeaVivre

      HI Katelyn,

      I’m glad that you are interested in our article.
      Please don’t worry about yourself.
      Everyone had different react to the tea, as long as the tea didn’t have bad effects on you health, then you can drink it anyway, anytime you want.
      However, drink in on an empty stomach will make you feel hungry, this maybe not good for weight loss.
      As for the hot water, we also use a boiling water or 95 degree water to brew a oolong tea, it’s ok. But not everyone can drink it very hot, because the hot water may burn your mouth. If the high temperature water is ok for you, you can still enjoy the tea in the way you want.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Hi, I am a bit confused, you suggest not to drink tea on an empty stomach but also not after meals? So when are the right circumstances to drink green tea? Many thanks for a reply

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Giovanni,
      Thank you for your question. We say do not drink tea on an empty stomach, because tea may stimulate your stomach, and cause bad reaction.
      However, if you drink tea just after your 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.
      Therefore, the proper time for drink tea is at least one hour after you have meals.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Hello, thank you for this very insightful and informative article. Recently I have been drinking, or indulging even, in white tea. Ever since this habit began, I noticed, there won’t ever be a day when I would not feel ‘dizzy’. The dizziness I am feeling is not ‘dizziness’ per se. I couldn’t explain it but I feel more like I am out of balance. It is usually accompanied by a heavy pressure on my head which travels to my temples and behind my ears. This pressure or heaviness causes me to feel lightheaded and it is disrupting my sense of balance/equilibrium. It doesn’t matter what position I am in, whether I am sitting or lying on the bed or standing I will get this sudden feeling of tilting to one side or bending over. Is this type of dizziness unusual? It only began when I started drinking white tea…it is awful, and I really like white tea. There was this time when I had nothing but fruits and vegetables in the entire day and white tea when that evening I began to feel really lightheaded like I would faint. Ever since I started drinking tea, my sleep in the evenings would be an interrupted one due to my constant urinating. I have heard that tea can cause you to urinate a lot so this did not surprise me but it is definitely a sleep killer. I wouldn’t even drink any tea at all before sleep and yet I would still get up several times every night because I am in need of urinating. I think drinking any tea at all has really done me more bad than good, and this is terrible news to me because I love drinking tea. But, I just don’t know anymore. I would usually drink tea before I eat a meal and after I ate a meal…I rarely or never drink it during meals. Also I used to drink green tea 3-5 cups a day though I didn’t experience any dizziness. But with white tea there is dizziness, disequilibrium, head and ear pressures, and one time even foggy hearing. This is truly awful.

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Pauline,

      Thank you very much for writing to us.

      Sincerely sorry to hear that you met this probelm. Actully we suggest that do not drink any teas before sleeping. Do not use tea to take medicine. The caffeine in teas is cordial, not suitable for depressant, anti-tussive and hypnotic medicine. Besides, polyphenols in teas will react to medicines and produce sedimentation, which affects efficacy. Do not drinking tea when hungry. If you do, the tea will dilute acid in your empty stomach, restrain your stomach juices’ secretion. Drink proper amount of teas every day. Too much tea will impact your sleep. Hope this is helpful for you.

      Hope teas will bring happiness to you.

  • Over the last several months I drink 1 or 2 cups of tea every evening. Last night I had 2 cups of chia black tea and 1 cup of green tea. I got a feeling of being unbalanced and the feeling would not leave me after an hour. I went to bed and woke up feeling fine. This has never happened before. Could this be the tea?

  • Hello. Thank you for this great information. I have been drinking roughly 40oz of a particular blend of tea for about 6 months now as it helps with my migraines. The blend consists of red raspberry leaves, peppermint leaves, alfalfa and nettle. I make the tea and drink it cold throughout the day. I also recently started drinking about 12 oz of a blend that contains orange peel, red rooibos, red raspberry leaves, hibiscus flowers, ginger root and rose hips. I make this tea hot with a bit of stevia added to it. From what I am reading, it sounds like I am drinking too much tea which can be harmful. Am I drinking to much? Thank you for your information just want to be sure as I started drinking the tea for my health but now not so sure.

  • Hi, I drink on average about 3 cups of tea a day. I mix it up usually but I mostly do green tea. is it okay to drink in this amount?

    • TeaVivre

      Drinking around 3-4 cups a day is ok. But do not drink teas when you are hungry, within one hour after meal and before you sleep.

  • Hi…

    I heard that drinking regularly Salted Black tea damage our Thinking power. Is it True?

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Grtien, in fact drinking tea as a habit can prevent memory loss, if you drink it rationally.
      However, regarding salted tea, it is not a good way for tasting teas. The salty flavor may affect black tea’s mellow taste, and if you drink it regularly, you may intake too much salt than the normal amount your body can absorb. High salt level in your body may cause problems in blood pressure, heart, kidney, or other diseases.
      Hope this is helpful for your concerns.

  • HI, i suffer bloating and drink up to 10 cups of black tea a day. is this too much?? thanks

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Natasha, you can drink black tea, but it is not suggested to drink 10 cups a day. 3 to5 cups will be good because you are suffering bloating. And it’s better not to drink the tea at meal or just in a short time near meals, for the tea liquid may affect digestion.

  • Hello and thank you!

    I have a bad habit of drinking 4 waters and 3 black teas for breakfast normally im fine but twice ive puked and felt intoxicated an entire day. Today am clutching my lower abdomin in pain after having two black teas Im extremly dizzy and thought i must be pregnant. After reading your article im aware I have been sickening myself.

  • Very good article! Just I don’t understand the amount of tea, which you can drink safely. 10g – does it mean 10 grams, and if so, how much is it in fact? How about tea bags?

    • TeaVivre

      Hello John, yes 10g means 10 grams tea. It is equal to 0.35 oz’s tea. For tea bags’ amount, it is different depends on the manufacturer who produced the tea bag. But mostly, the amount of tea to use in a brew is strongly connected to the water amount. It is suggested to adjust the water’s amount according to how much tea you use.

  • Hello, I contacted you on your website about two years ago. At that time the site was just being developed. I am impressed with all the information that you now have on your pages! Congratulations. You now have a well developed and website. I find the information you have developed to be both interesting and important. Such as, how and when to drink teas, allowing time after finishing a meal before taking tea, and other helpful suggestions. It is very helpful to know these details. I hope your business is continuing to grow and prosper. I look forward to enjoying some more of your teas very soon. ~Valerie Donahue
