I’ve recently returned from a 2-day tea hiatus. I wanted to stop drinking tea to see if my crippling stomach aches would stop. They did. But, I also suffered nasty caffeine withdrawal, which gave me crippling headaches. So, I have 2 options: 1. Drink tea, be healthier, but have stomach aches or 2. Don’t drink tea, be lethargic, and have headaches.

This tasting note shows which option I chose.

I get stomach aches from tea too sometimes, but if I keep it to 1 or 2 teas per day I don’t really have any trouble. I think having it with tomato sauce based foods makes it worse.

What? That sucks! Have you talked to an allergist?

try switching up teas; coffee makes my sick – i drink it anyway, but try mate only one day, green another….perhaps it’s just blacks

once you narrow it down you might be able to find your limits (1 black a day, rest green, or a few blacks but only with tums)

@Harfatum – Tomato stuff hurts my stomach too! I can no longer eat tomato soup, much to my dismay.
@ takgoti – I don’t think it’s an allergy issue. I’ve had stomach ulcers due to stress before (darn high school), so I think it’s more that my stomach is all messed up.
@AmazonV – Good idea, I’m definitely going to experiment. Black teas are my favorite, so I want to know exactly how much I can drink without being in pain.

What concerns me is that I drink 3 cups of tea per day at most, which isn’t very much. But my stomach is wacky, so who knows. Today I’m drinking only blacks.

Bio

I have recently been forcibly transplanted from Princeton, New Jersey to Burleson, Texas. I’ve been recovering from culture shock ever since. When I’m not dodging scorpions and pickup trucks, I’m a college student, drummer, lover of music and animals, Harry Potter freak, and a vegetarian. I just got a job at a bookstore, which is the perfect place for somebody like me.
