Cautions please be aware that herbs, although natural can interact with certain medications, and that they may be ill advised to use under certain health conditions. Please consult a qualified health practitioner for cautions pertinent to you. Both green and black tea contains caffeine, unless you are drinking decaffeinated varieties. If you are sensitive to caffeine or are pregnant or have another condition where you should avoid caffeine exposure, either don't drink tea or find a decaffeinated version. If you take MAO inhibitors, a type of antidepressant, you may want to avoid caffeine as well. Side effects of caffeine sensitivity include insomnia, nervousness, frequent urination, increased heart rate and blood pressure. Excessive tea consumption can cause nervous irritability or aggravate ulcers. If you suffer from anxiety, a weakened cardiovascular system, hyperthyroid or kidney disease, you should not drink tea unless your caregiver is sure it won't interact with your condition or any medications you take. Tea may cause asthma to get worse. If you take blood thinners, green tea especially may be a concern since it contains a large quantity of vitamin K. Either avoid it altogether, or drink a similar amount every day so you can adjust your medication to the increased level of vitamin K in your diet.
