Congrats on the great question and nice subject... The answer depends on the TYPE and FREQUENCY of your tea drinking. Green tea seems to be the most beneficial of all the types, i.e. white, green, oolong, black. All of them have caffeine, although MUCH less (1/3) than that in a cup of coffee, except herbal "teas". Therefore, it isn't as dehydrating as most think it to be. It appears the way you take your tea has an effect on health. Adding MILK to your cup CANCELS out its health benefits, according to a recent British study. And research suggests it can keep the body from absorbing iron in food, so WHEN you drink it matters as well (i.e. not at mealtimes, it's suggested). Finally, and especially for males, the TEMPERATURE at which they take their tea also has a bearing on their health, particularly the kidneys. ICED teas increase the risk of getting kidney stones for men over 40.

Oops! Correct 2nd link at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6241139.stm Plus, average tea consumption studied 3-4 cups/day. I didn't find any studies that focused on a higher intake.

I think drinking tea is now said to be very good for us. There was a discussion about things that are good for us to drink once, and I remember reading that tea is very good to drink so I would drink away and not worry. (as long as it is not 10 or more cups) per day.

I found this for you: The latest medical research on tea is finding potential healing powers in this ancient beverage. Recent research, for instance, suggests drinking tea may help prevent everything from cavities to Parkinson's disease. And some studies indicate it may even save lives. The benefits of tea consumption may extend throughout the body, experts believe.

Personally, tea is my favourite drink.I could drink more then 3 cups a day. Nothing more refreshing then a cup of hot tea. As far as I know, tea is good for your health in many aspect. BR

hi tushavi, i will never say that drinking tea is good for health. i know that tea is one of the most widely consumed drinks. it is taken primarily as a hot drink for its stimulating effects. one feels refreshed and get over that tired feeling. some of its harmful effects are indigestion ,it slows down the digestion , kidney disorders, premenstrual syndrome, incontinence.

Hey to my knowledge tea is very good for health especially black tea is really good. Maybe we shud not exceed more than 4-5 times. But then I have 2 cups of tea a day. I feel so incomplete without it.I don't think it is harmful

tea is antioxidant, and also contains fluoride, so strengthens your teeth. yes, it leaves staining on the teeth, but this can easily be polished off. I drink a lot of strong tea, and have very little tea staining, because I have an electric toothbrush, and this is excellent for removing staining. I like tea much better than coffee. it tastes clean and refreshing, and there's nothing like it in the morning.

It has a lot of healthy benefits but it is said that it can also stain your teeth.
