Like all good things in life, Wild Yunnan Tea is best enjoyed in moderation. While a few cups a day of Wild Yunnan tea can have amazing effects on your overall health drinking too much can have adverse side effects.
We recommend you do not exceed drinking more than 7 cups of Wild Yunnan Tea in a 24 hour period. Consuming high quantities of more than seven cups of pure tea per day can result in mild to serious side effects such as a headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhoea, irritability, irregular heartbeat, tremor, heartburn, dizziness, ringing in the ears, convulsions, and confusion.
Wild Yunnan Tea is not recommended in large amounts during pregnancy and breast-feeding because, like all natural teas, it contains caffeine. The excess of tea during pregnancy or breast feeding can result in miscarriages or an infant with sleep problems.
Consumed in small amounts like one or two cups per day, most tea is harmless and more than likely beneficial. Less processed teas can have some negative impact on those with sensitivity to caffeine or for those who have never tried tea before. They can sometimes upset a sensitive stomach, especially if the tea drinker has stomach ulcers and/or unresolved gastrointestinal or stomach issues.
For those people it is advised not drink tea on an empty stomach. You should always seek the advice of your health professional if you have any of the above symptoms after consuming any form of tea or if you are prone to caffeine sensitivity or severe stomach issues.
