But not yet tea. I tried the tea and it was too strong for me with the tannin in it. If I drink a bit of instant coffee (Nescafe French Roast), I can now handle it. I had been restricted from tea and coffee in the last 2 months due to illness. Drinking water was getting old. I am happy to say I can now drink a bit of coffee, but first I have to dose myself up with a pill called Prelief. It breaks down the acid in the coffee for me to be able to handle it. There is acid free coffee to buy, but I bet that tastes like doodoo so I will not bother buying it. How many cups of coffee do you have per day? I have only one now and sometimes top it up with a bit of hot water. Ugh the life.

When I cannot have coffee due to stomach problems, I drink a very weak te with a couple of drops of lemon juice, no sugar. It is delicious.

Oh nice the lemon Marguicha. Unfortunately, I can't handle the lemon too acid for me.

I don't take coffee at all as the doctor has asked me not to take it. I take green tea only once in the morning which I take for weight control.

I have only had the green tea a few times previously. It tasted quite nice. I suppose you get used to it Anindita.

Green tea has the lowest concentration of tannins while black tea has the highest.

Is there an acid free coffee? I would try it. Most teas - even herbal ones could have tannin, but taking it with milk helps.

@RebeccasFarm Chamomile is one of those with tannin. In fact teas have more tannin than coffee.

How many cups of coffee do I have per day or pots of coffee??? seriously I make a pot in the morning and share it with my daughter. Maybe in the afternoon I'll have a decaf but usually by then I'm into a cold drink. I love coffee but probably don't drink as much as I lead people to believe I do. Glad you're able to drink a cup now, Must have been hard to give it up

Yay! I’m glad you are able to enjoy coffee again. I always have at least one Turkish coffee in the morning and then in the afternoon I will have something less potent lol ( tea or macchiato or cappuccino). I always have cookies with coffee tho or something sweet (my grandmother developed this habit for me).
