So far, no one has determined any bad affects of tea on the human body. But one thing I would like to point out is that some teas are a bit acidic. Like any other acidic foods or beverages, if you have problems with acid you should take tea with a snack.

Green teas are usually more acidic than other teas like white teas and oolongs. Check out our site to see the varieties of teas at

Tea, for all of its benefits, does have two downsides. One is that it inhibits iron intake, so anemics should be aware before drinking. It also arguably has negative effects on the thyroid gland as a result of its high fluoride and aluminum content.
