Question Too much tea?

Lately I have been drinking 4-5 cups of bagged tea a day, and putting two tea bags in each cup (I combine caffeine free ginger tea with regular green tea with lemon).

My question is, is this too much tea daily?

Thank you.

Re: Too much tea?

As long as you enjoy it and don' have any adverse effects from it, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't continue drinking it.

Ask yourself the following questions:

1) Does the caffeine make you jittery?

2) Does the caffeine keep you awake at night?

3) Does the tea act as a diuretic, causing you to urinate frequently?

Exactly! if you enjoy it and there are no side effects just keep drinking it

Re: Too much tea?

I drink 3 - 4 cups of ginger & lemon tea a day and a couple of glasses of decaf green tea. All unsweetened. I think I feel better!

Re: Too much tea?

Try replacing it with green tea instead. It has great antioxidants and helps to remain in good shape as well.
