Diary 113: Is Chinese tea alkaline?

This is one frequently asked question during my health talks. My Hainanese friend, Shirley Teh, dropped an email to inquire the same yesterday.

On 7 July 2010, the tourist guides in KL Tourist Guides Association asked if it is good to drink a lot of Chinese tea while bringing tourists around. They were not sure whether it is alkaline or acid.

Chinese tea and green tea are alkaline.

Do not add sugar to the Chinese tea or green tea. Sugar will offset the alkalinity with acidity.

You may add lemon. Lemon is acidic outside the body but turns alkaline inside the body.

Kindly take note that Chinese tea or green tea being alkaline in nature, they bring cooling effect. Over consumption may bring different effects to our bodies.

For example, when it rains heavily and the weather is cool, it may be wise not to take Chinese or green tea. The explanation is simple. The environment is already cooling, why take cooling drink to further “cool off” the body.

Always listen to messages sent by the body.

  1. Tea has proven to aid in the advancement of healthy bodies due mainly to the amount of antioxidants it contains in the form of polyphenols. Doctors and researchers have found that Oolong tea provides an array of healthy body solutions including contributing to natural weight loss and reducing cholesterol and high blood pressure for a healthy heart.
