Anyone else fell nausea after drinking tea, especially on an empty stomach? I handle coffee (black, strong) fine, but cheap conventional tea (i.e. Tetley, Store Brand, etc) really make me feel sick. On the flipside, Stash "teas" (fruity, spices, etc) have not adverse affects on me. Anyone have an answer?
I believe that nausea from both green and black teas are common when they are taken on an empty belly. I cannot drink my green tea on empty or I will HURL!
Yeah I'm really careful about when I drink my green tea. I have to have a full stomach or I'll be extremely nauseous for an hour or so.
Save the tea for right after breakfast and right after lunch.
Put a little beef gelatin in your tea and you won't feel the nausea. I use about 1/2 tbsp and dissolve it in a little tap water, let it sit while the water boils for my tea then add a little boiling water, stir, then put in tea bag and fill cup with boiling water.
Yes, if I have it in the morning without food I get nauseous, even to the point of dry heaving at times (before I made the connection.) A friend is the one that actually told me it was common and helped me make the connection. I've had this effect with various forms of tea from the actual tea leaves.
I drink a lot of tea and have noticed if I don't use fresh water in the kettle, it makes me feel sick every time. Twice boiled water for tea is not good. There's some sort of chemical reaction, or so I've read anyway.
Oh and nauseous can actually mean "affected with nausea". http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/nauseous
I did a 24 hour fast the other week and drank some green tea during it. I was very nauseous the rest of the day.
I think in my case that I might be sensitive to the the tannins in green tea. The longer you steep the tea, the more tannins there will be in the tea. I was steeping my tea for like 5 minutes, which is pretty long. I haven't drank any green tea since, so I am not sure if a shorter steeping time would resolve this for me.
