Next to coffee, alcohol and of course, water, tea is one of the world’s most beloved beverages.

And there’s a good reason why.

For one thing, few things are as satisfying as drinking a warm and soothing cup of tea to calm the nerves and senses, while fewer still are those that can help calm you down and make you more relaxed.

Of course, tea wouldn’t be as popular if it’s only soothing and nice to drink. It’s also incredibly healthy and hosts a lot of benefits that can improve your overall well-being. In fact, studies suggest that it can help reduce your risk of developing chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.

However, too much of a good thing can be bad. Exceeding three to four cups of tea everyday does have its negative repercussions. Here are some of them:

Reduced iron absorption

While the tannins found in tea have good antioxidant properties, they also bind iron to certain foods, making them hard to absorb. This can help contribute to iron deficiency, which is actually one of the most common deficiencies in the whole world.

Poor sleep

While tea can help give you sleep, it can also help take it away because tea naturally contains caffeine, which inhibits melatonin, more commonly known as the sleep hormone. Inadequate sleep can then lead to exhaustion, as well as a variety of mental issues such as reduced attention span and impaired memory.

Increased anxiety and restlessness

This one is also connected to caffeine since overconsumption of it can definitely contribute to feelings of restlessness, anxiety and stress. When it comes to tea variety, black teas tend to have more caffeine content than green and white kinds.

Nausea

Some compounds in a tea can cause nausea for some people, especially when consumed too much. Thankfully, this can be easily remedied by adding milk to your tea, or having some food alongside it. This can also help minimise any digestive irritation.

Heartburn

Additionally, too much tea can also aggravate pre-existing acid reflux symptoms. Furthermore, it can also contribute to acid production in the stomach.
