Hi friends, I have heard from few doctors that having tea after meal is good as it helps in digestion while others say it is not good, do you have any idea is it good or bad?

I am tea drinker. I would drink tea after meals and also at other times, morning and afternoon. I beleive in the health value of tea. Green tea is also known to have excellent health value. I keep a pack of green tea at home abd also at my office. Whenever I feel thirsty, I would have a cup of green tea. That's very relaxing.

So far I never heard negative comments on drinking tea after meal. I always do this- drinking tea after meal. Because I find it inappropriate to drink Tea before meal, I might lose appetite. So far everything is okay with this practice, I have a good digestion, and my problems about menstrual cramps every month effectively vanish. So I don't think so it has a bad effect.

It's a bad habit to drink tea after meal. I'd been told that when I was young.
