Drinking Tea Make My Teeth Feel Fuzzy

(Tucson, AZ)

I love hot tea. But I can't seem to find a tea that does not make my teeth feel coated or fuzzy. Has anyone else had the problem and did you solve the issue and how or with which teas. Please help. I'm missing my nightly cuppa.

Tea staining teeth!
by: Julian

Carol, unfortunately tea, like coffee, wine and fruit juice, does stain our teeth. It is much better than sugary drinks, and it stimulates saliva production that does great for foul mouth, but it you drink tea and not brush your teeth regularly, it will leave stain behind.
