There is a saying in the folk, "A pot of tea early in the morning, you don't need to find a doctor." We also found that senior tea friends have the habit of drinking a pot of strong tea on an empty stomach after waking up in the morning. This habit has persisted for many years. If they do not drink enough tea one morning, they do not want to eat other things .

Take a closer look at all of these tea friends, but they have exquisite skin and ruddy complexion. Is it true that drinking tea on an empty stomach in the morning really has the effect of cleansing the intestines? Can ordinary people follow suit? With the above questions, we visited some Chinese doctors and Tea friends.

Is it good to drink tea early in the morning? Dr. Pan: (Doctor of Nanhai Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine) Generally speaking, drinking strong tea on an empty stomach after getting up early will not only cause gastrointestinal discomfort, loss of appetite, but also damage the normal function of the nervous system. However, drinking light tea in the morning is not a big hindrance. It is recommended to pour the first tea and drink two teas. It is even better for the elderly to add a little sugar and an appropriate amount of white chrysanthemum to the tea.

What kind of tea is good to drink tea in the morning? Mr. Shuai (boss Natural puerh, member of Beijing Guangming College of Traditional Chinese Medicine) Everyone's constitution is different. Tea drinking varies from person to person, not everyone can accept morning tea. Those who want to try to start drinking tea in the morning should have a gradual lightness. You can choose Pu-erh and Wuyi Mountain Rock Tea to drink, especially Pu-erh has the effect of nourishing the stomach. Even strong tea is not afraid to drink more. Green tea, such as the fragrance-type Tieguanyin, is especially unsuitable for people with cold stomachs.

We also visited several other doctors and tea friends. He believed that whether the tea was cleared in the morning on an empty stomach could not be generalized, and it depended on each body constitution. Old tea friends have been accustomed to drinking strong tea on an empty stomach in the morning since they were young, which has a health effect on cellulite and degreasing. For other people who have a bad stomach, especially those with constipation, strong tea contains more tannic acid, which can easily cause constipation. A glass of light saline or honey water in the morning is a more appropriate insurance method.
