Why it cause me discomfort by drinking tea?

Somebody realized that they feel discomfort by drinking tea,
usually happened after a long period without tea or from one tea to another tea.
It brings trouble to those tea lovers. They are getting upset and thinking that maybe they can’t drink tea anymore.

But what is happened? Can’t they enjoy tea anymore?
Of course not! Tea is a standard beverage in human history. If tea generally caused discomfort or disease, it would have been eliminated long ago.

Then, what is the discomfort that tea brings to me?
In the following situations, drinking tea will make people feel uncomfortable.

1. Use poorly preserved tea leaves.
2. Drink a tea that has been left for too long.
3. Drinking tea while sick.
4. Allergies.
5. Decreased caffeine tolerance.
6. Pesticide residues in tea.

1. Use poorly preserved tea leaves.

Tea must store in a cool and dry place; avoid humid environments to prevent the proliferation of bacteria and molds.
Sometimes, you use proper storage conditions, but it still has a problem with tea.
At this time, it can be considered that the tea merchants’ poor preservation conditions have caused the deterioration of the tea leaves.
The use of such tea leaves to make tea may cause discomfort.
When purchasing, you can check the outer packaging and the state of the tea to confirm the preservation of the tea merchant.

2. Drink a tea that has been left for too long.

For us, brewed tea is rich in nutritional value. This is the same for bacteria and molds.
Once in contact with water and the temperature is reduced to a condition where bacteria and mold can grow, the bacteria and mold in the air will increase in large numbers after contact with tea water and tea leaves.
Of course, drinking such tea has the chance to cause illness.

3. Drinking tea while sick.

In Chinese culture, we believe that green tea and lightly fermented oolong are more irritating to the intestines and stomach,
so they are not suitable for people with gastrointestinal discomfort to avoid the aggravation of the situation.
In addition, people prone to anxiety should not drink too high a concentration of tea not to be stimulated by caffeine.

4. Allergies.

The tea itself rarely causes allergies in people. It is usually mixed with flower and fruit-flavored tea or herbal tea, which can cause allergies because of the ingredients.
Before purchasing any tea, you must confirm whether the ingredients contain it have allergens that can cause your allergies.
For allergens, please consult a professional physician for assistance.

5. Decreased caffeine tolerance.

Would you please try to remember the first time you had tea or coffee? Some people may feel a slight increase in heartbeat or feel excited. This is how we reacted to caffeine for the first time.
After that, we gradually become accustomed to the presence of caffeine, so our body is used to this feeling, and the reaction will decrease.
However, when we have not been exposed to caffeine for a while, the body will be unfamiliar with the response of caffeine. This is the reduced tolerance to caffeine.
When we are exposed to caffeine again, we will be amazed at the body’s reaction, thinking that something is wrong. It’s just the process of getting used to caffeine again, which is normal.

6. Pesticide residues in tea.

We may have been exposed to many kinds of tea. The production process and quality of each type of tea are different.
When we switch from a more natural tea with more pesticide residues, the body will have a rejection reaction.
Please note that there are more pesticide residues here do not mean that the tea is unqualified or does not meet the sampling standards.
But the human body is one of the most sophisticated instruments. We have a way to identify substances that are harmful to the human body and respond accordingly.
This type of rejection may include the following symptoms:
Tongue tingling, lower throat and chest tingling, scalp tingling, throat constriction, increased blood pressure, faster heartbeat, nausea, gastrointestinal contractions, headache, dizziness, and irritability.
Some of the reactions are just similar to body reactions to caffeine or allergies.

Therefore, judging whether there are pesticide residues depends on good physical conditions.
At the same time, the use of tea leaves with strict inspection reports or certified tea leaves can greatly reduce the occurrence of such things.

Tea is a drink that is used to please our lives, not something that causes trouble.
As long as you use tea in the right way, you can maintain a happy life.
