    Hi, I am addicted to tea

    on average a day i would have about 6-8 strong black teas(sometimes one would be green tea) a day (as in keeping in the tea bags), I understand that, that amount of caffeine may have long term effects on my health, so i've recently started drinnking red bush too, but because this doesn't ful fill my need of tea as much as black tea (all though it is very very nice), im drinking like 10-12 redbush + 1-2 blacks(& sometimes 1 green:P) a day, even though im not taking in a particular high amount of caffeine a day, does anybody know if excessive amounts of redbush tea would have any side effects?

    Tea stops your body from being able to absorb iron from foods well. You shouldn't have tea an hour before you eat.

    My tea addiction is how I became anaemic

    is redbush decaf?

    I came off caffeine recently after being properly addicted for a few years - it was only in december that it'd take 2 cans of monster and 3 cups of coffee a day just to stop the headaches
