Tea had a reputation for being both safe and almost
always beneficial. However, scientists are now
suggesting that tea may not be as safe as we had
previously believed. Tea contains caffeine, and
caffeine has been linked to sleeplessness and to the
unpleasant jumpy feeling some people get when
stressed. More seriously, there is a link between
miscarriages, and pregnant women are advised to
reduce their intake of tea until after their baby is born.
Due its dangerous side-effects, many people who
drink a lot of tea solve the problem by drinking a
beverage from which the caffeine has been removed,
decaffeinated tea, but others claim that it simply
doesn't taste right. The sensible course is probably
one of moderation: continue to enjoy your cup of tea,
but don't enjoy too many!
