Seven taboos to drink Pu'er tea

Although Pu'er tea is good, it is not without contraindications when drinking it, and some specific people should pay special attention when drinking it.
Avoid drinking new tea: Because new tea has a short storage time, it contains a lot of non-oxidized polyphenols, aldehydes, and alcohols, which has a strong stimulating effect on human gastrointestinal mucosa and is easy to induce gastric disease. Therefore, it is advisable to drink less new tea, and to avoid drinking new tea stored for less than half a month.
Drinking tea on an empty stomach: Drinking tea on an empty stomach can dilute gastric juice, reduce digestive function, and increase the absorption rate of water, causing a large number of undesirable components in tea to enter the bloodstream, causing dizziness, palpitation, weakness in hands and feet, and other symptoms of "fainting tea".
Tea with fever: Tea contains theophylline, which has the effect of raising body temperature. Drinking tea for fever patients is tantamount to "putting oil on fire".
Drinking tea during menstruation : Drinking tea during menstruation, especially strong tea, can induce or aggravate menstrual syndrome. Medical experts have found that compared with those who do not drink tea, men who have the habit of drinking tea are 2.4 times more likely to experience menstrual stress, and those who drink more than four cups of tea a day increase by three times.
Liver patients should not drink tea: Most of the caffeine and other substances in tea are metabolized by the liver. If the liver is diseased, drinking too much tea will exceed the liver's metabolic capacity, which will damage liver tissue.
Pregnant women are advised not to drink tea, especially not to drink strong tea: tea contains a large amount of tea polyphenols, caffeine, etc., which has many unfavorable factors for the growth of the fetus in the womb. In order to allow the fetal intelligence to develop normally, avoid caffeine to the fetus. Excessive stimulation, pregnant women should drink less or no tea.
Insomnia: Because Pu'er tea has a refreshing effect, patients with insomnia should avoid drinking tea before going to bed.
