Norms and rules of consumption for tea

Many people know about the benefits of tea, but little is said about its dangers. Almost no one knows that tea can cause a condition similar to alcohol intoxication. This can happen if you drink too much brewed tea. Signs that tea intoxication has occurred are manifested in dizziness and tinnitus. If you drink strong tea often, and especially on an empty stomach, it may begin to disturb the stomach.
Side effect
People who drink tea infrequently are most affected. And for those who have any gastrointestinal diseases, it is not recommended to drink strong tea leaves, since it will irritate the walls of the stomach.

Those who most often consume tea varieties served strong fermentation, switching to less fermented varieties, may experience intoxication. The former include such types of tea as red, oolong, and puer, while the latter include green and white tea.

Any tea should not be drunk on an empty stomach.

Intoxication can occur after drinking too fresh tea, especially one that was harvested in early spring. This tea has a high content of caffeine and other active, aromatic substances. This additionally stimulates the central nervous system, hence the feeling of intoxication.
Tea Tips
• How should tea be used to minimize its negative effects? Here are the basic rules:
• Drink tea at the right time, not on an empty stomach. Otherwise, dizziness and nervous tics may occur.
• Drink tea slowly and calmly.
• Do not drink tea in large quantities (the norm for tea is not more than 10 grams per day).
• Drink warm tea, not hot tea.
• Evenly distribute the amount of tea per day, do not drink the entire norm at once.
• Do not drink tea “for nothing”, jam it.
• Drink only fresh tea leaves before they have time to cool. No more than an hour has passed from the moment of brewing.
• Do not brew tea leaves for too long. Otherwise, unwanted compounds may form there.
• Drink tea with the right foods. An ideal snack for tea would be iron-free foods. Since iron-containing products react with the polyphenolic substances of tea.
• Do not drink tea right before meals, as studies have shown that in this case, the absorption of iron occurs only 40%.
• Drink tea half an hour after or half an hour before meals.
• Do not drink medicines with tea, as tea eliminates all their beneficial effects on the body. The tannin in tea reacts to the medicine, and they can be poorly absorbed or not absorbed at all, precipitating.

Remember that yesterday’s tea leaves are poison. If the tea has stood for at least a day, then vitamins and nutrients almost completely disappear in it. But pathogens actively multiply there.

If you notice that tea, having stood for a long time, however, has not deteriorated, then it can be used as a medicine. But not inward, but outwardly.

Due to the fluorine and tannic acids contained in the tea, it can counteract capillary bleeding. Such a problem usually occurs with various purulent lesions of the oral cavity, inflammation and eczema, as well as with periodontal disease.

Yesterday’s tea leaves can help with redness of the eye proteins. You can feel the freshness in your mouth just by rinsing your mouth with tea.

By choosing the right time for adoption and calculating the norm for tea, you can find a healthy drink and strengthen your health with it.
