Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk/ Garima Kotroo: This monsoon season the chai lovers just got one more excuse to have another cup of tea , but excessive consumption of tea can badly affect your health.
It contains caffeine, fluoride and flavonoids which make it difficult for you to concentrate, make you restless, feel jittery or disrupt your sleep patterns. Tea can interrupt with some medication if consumed in large quantities.
On an average, three to five cups of tea in a day would be adequate to have. Rest it depends on the way your body responds to compounds present in tea.
