Green Tea

After a couple of months of not drinking green tea, I've started drinking it again. I like drinking it, the only problem is I seem to feel nauseated after drinking it. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    Green tea has that effect on me too, however Green tea with jasmine is fine, and I tastes much better to me!! How about peppermint tea? It's good for the digestion too!

    I get that with drinking any type of tea :frown: It's not as bad if I have it in smaller cups though, strangely enough!

    Never eat or drink anything that makes you feel lousy. I know "they" say it has health benefits.. But it just may not be right for you.

    Are you brewing it too strong? Try adding more water next time.

    I have honey with mine :) and peppermint tea is great for digestion as said. I also try green with with apple and pear in
  • I love green tea too. I don't experience that symtom. When are you drinking it? Before a meal? after a meal? when you just get up? also, how strong are you making it? Try it with something in your tummy, like a cracker or two, and try it weak then gradually make it stronger. Also check out the different types of green tea. I like Lipton . I hope that helps..

    drinking any caffeinated tea on an empty stomach is rough. drink it after food. you can also superdilute it by making it in a larger thermos or water bottle so every sip is less concentrated and takes you longer to drink. This also boosts your water intake! :)

    I like Lipton acai/blueberry and the orange flavored one with amber agave. Its really yummy and not too strong. Maybe try a few new brands?
  • I agree with what other said, if it makes you feel bad, don't drink it!!!
    If you really want to keep drinking it....maybe try a different flavor? I had a green tea with blueberry that was so good! Add lemon or a little honey?
  • I have it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach so will try drinking it once I've had some food.

    It doesn't make me feel REALLY bad just unpleasant sometimes, I like drinking it so hopefully having something to eat and brewing it for a shorter amount of time will do the trick.
