We cannot confirm the accuracy of some of these statements and, in fact, believe that for some studies it's possible that rigorous scientific standards were not followed.   

Some are folklore tales passed down through the generations (which doesn't make it untrue).  But it is important you do your own research.

It is important to point out any possible adverse affects from drinking tea as well as the possible benefits.


One woman developed brittle bones and lost her teeth from drinking 100-150 teabags per day, giving her a daily consumption of over 20mg of fluoride (the norm is 4mg for adults) and a condition named osteofluororosis.


Some people cannot tolerate caffeine.  This leaves them feeling anxious, having panic attacks and difficulty sleeping.  With others, they get a feeling of nausea, bthis can be caused by drinking tea on an empty stomach.


Other studies have found that drinking tea too hot may cause esophageal cancer, although it would be safe to say drinking anything too hot would do the same.  Another study found that drinking over 7 cups of tea a day may contribute to prostate cancer. 


Caffeine is a mild diuretic and can cause dehydration.
