Tea is a great discovery that has made our life very easy. Am I right or wrong..??? Tea is almost like an addictive drink for most of the people. But does anyone even know whether how tea is very harmful also at the same time to all of us. But the leading brands of tea would never disclose this news that I would be giving you on my article.

Tanin is responsible for this condition, but we often use milk so however it gets disappears when we do so since milk precipitates milk. But since tea delays our stomach digestion that could lead us to gas formation diarrhoea and constipation as well.
