Queries again

Oh hello again!

I have got additional questions. drinking on empty stomach on some on the posts you recommend not to -

"According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, drinking tea on empty stomach cause "coldness" to enter the lung and stomach system."

so what should we follow? drink it to detox or don't drink it to prevent "coldness"?

If we does drink on empty stomach, do you immediately eat your breakfast after that? is there any relation to the tea having an effect on the body's absorption of nutrients just like having the tea during/immedidately after meal?

Tea and Stomach
by: Julian

To put the cultural context on this subject, I think Asians are more sensitive to green tea compared to Westerners, in the same way that Asians tend to eat less cold and raw food compared to Westerners.

It is a well known fact among Chinese herbalists that for some people, more highly oxidized teas are better for the body compared to green tea. For example, Chinese red tea is preferred to green tea for older people, as it is more gentle on stomach and digestion.

So to answer your questions:

- If you are concerned about green tea upsetting your stomach, start by drinking green tea between meals.

- Green tea can block nutrition absorption. If you want to drink a tea with meals, oolong and red teas are recommended. They do so with a lesser degree.

- The body takes a few years to adjust to tea, so start slowly. Over a period of a few years, your body tolerance will increase, and the chances of side effects will greatly reduce.

Very happy person

I wake up at 5 in the morning to feed my husband breakfast and I took green tea on an empty stomach and I was wide awake feeling great, instead of always feeling if I don't take it.

Thanks for all this information.

Earlier I was taking Red tea with milk in the morning.
Lately, I started taking Green Tea first thing in the morning. I feel terribly nauseous for atleast half an hour. Is it natural to feel that way initially until the body is used to Green Tea?

Hey I want to know that you describe that you should drink green tea 30 mins before your exercise but we do exercise before our breakfast and it is good to drink green tea after breakfast. So confuse...
