Is it unhealthy to drink "too much tea" ???
K. This is the perfect place to find out if I drink too much tea. (Mostly yerba matè, and green)
Ok, so I wake up and drink a liter, in about in hour. At the place I work, we sell beer in 33oz mugs. I have one at home and I usually drink any where from 4-7 liters of tea a day. I don’t feel ANY negative side effects. My energy is thru the roof, I’m in a much better mood, and my job keeps me running around all day so it’s beneficial to me. Anyway, just wondering if this is excessive? It might be, but I feel fine sooooo, I’m probably going to keep drinking line this. Also, Im 24, 5’1", 110 lbs and I smoke.
Well, if you smoke, I wouldn’t worry about what tea is doing to my health if I were you. I don’t say that to be snarky, just to suggest that if you are concerned about not harming your health, drop the cigs! Then address other issues if necessary. FWIW, I had a pack a day habit in my early 20s. Your future self will thank you for quitting!
Well, its mostly weed. Spliffs. Tobacco and weed. And Ive been smoking for like….6 years probably. I just don’t want my teeth or anything to fall out. I’m pretty healthy and active. I just read this article about some woman who drank up to 100 tea bags a day, and doctors thought she had cancer but turns out, too much tea. That’s why I’m curious.
I understand what people say about moderation being key, but… how much is too much tea?
I think I drink about 5-8 12oz cups in a day, (brewing two at a time and alternating) but I always pair a black tea with something else, and in the evening I’ll drink decaf teas too. I can drink black tea right up until I go to bed without it (seeming to) affect my sleep. But I think at the most I’d have 60-72 oz in a day of caffeinated tea.
Sounds like a lot, but then I think that is still less than some coffee drinkers drink in a day.
Yes. Please see attached article:
