Tea Causing Vomiting?

  1. 0
    Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of tea causing nausea and vomiting. I am not a coffee drinker, but if I drink tea on an empty stomach in the morning, it causes severe N/V. I'm pretty much OK if I drink it later in the day and if I have had a snack. Even if I don't vomit, the nausea lasts a few hours. Just wondering if anyone else has come across this.
    Thanks

    Tea gives me horrible heartburn any time of the day, so I avoid it. Now coffee, I drink it all day, but if I drink too much I get nauseated.

    Hot tea like green tea and black teas will make me nauseaus too. Not always, and I haven't figured out the rhyme or reason for it. I drink green tea for the antioxidants, it usually helps if I take it with a meal.

    Yup. I can't drink tea on an empty stomach either. I assumed it was the tannic acid, because I can drink gallons of coffee, and just get jittery, not nauseated.

    Wow! I didnt expect such a strong response! Anyone know why tea causes this? Rumi, I drink green tea for the antioxidants too, but the nausea is horrible. Does it have anything to do with the quality of tea...I mean a no name brand versus Earl Grey or something???

    I'm guessing it's the tannic acid. Black tea has less caffeine than coffe, so it's not likely that.

    I drink manage to drink hot tea, black or green, on an empty stomach with no problem.

    i start off the morning with a cup of hot tea while my coffee is brewing, and i drink brewed iced-tea all day long, so no tummy problems for me. do you get n/v from other warm beverages on an empty stomach?
