Can you drink black tea on empty stomach?

    Yes, you can drink black tea on an empty stomach. However, it may cause acidity -- although this greatly depends on the type and quality of the tea.

    Typically, it is better to consume tea after meals and snacks as this will help in digestion and activate your metabolism to break down the food.

    Tea is generally good for health. Consuming black tea can result in healthier living provided it replaces other sugary drinks in your diet. This will result in a reduction in the amount of sugar and calories in your daily intake which will result in a healthier body mass index in the long term (depending on your age, build, health condition, etc.).

    Green tea has been shown to activate your metabolism and increase your metabolic rate which results in faster burning of fat/calories per day. See this article for more: Green Tea Boosts Metabolism, Protects Against Diseases [WebMD].

    Note: I highly recommend using only high-quality loose leaf tea (like our teas!) to brew the tea in order to get the nutritional/mineral benefits.
