Many people drink tea on a daily basis. But, there are three things you need to know if you’re a tea drinker.

Three important things to know about tea:
1. Certain teas are high in tannins
• Tannins bind iron, zinc, and calcium
• Tannins block the absorption of vitamin B1 (a B1 deficiency may cause anxiety)

2. Certain teas are loaded with heavy metals (aluminum, lead, and arsenic)
• Teas from China may have higher amounts of heavy metals and pesticides

3. Certain tea bags are bleached with chlorine
• The chemical used (epichlorohydrin) is a carcinogen

You don’t need to stop drinking tea altogether. You just need to do a few simple things first, including:
1. Ensuring your tea is organic
2. Taking vitamin B1 and minerals
3. Buying loose leaf tea or making sure your tea bags are bleach-free
4. Researching your tea and finding out where your tea comes from
