7 side effects of drinking too much milk tea 

Ritik Raj

Milk tea, also known as chai, is a popular beverage in India, but there are some potential side effects to drinking it.

Constipation: Consuming excessive amounts of tea can dry out and dehydrate the body, which makes it more difficult to pass stool.

Anxiety: Tea can exacerbate the symptoms of anxiety, so people who suffer from this condition should avoid drinking tea frequently.

Sleep disturbance: If a person drinks tea frequently or right before bed, the caffeine content of the beverage may cause them to experience insomnia.

Imbalances in blood pressure: Drinking too much milk tea can cause an imbalance in blood pressure, which can be harmful to one's health.

Dehydration: Milk tea can dehydrate you because it contains caffeine, especially if you drink a lot of it.

Headache: Overindulging in milk tea can cause dehydration, which can then result in headaches.

Stomach bloating: Tea's caffeine content may cause bloating. When milk is added to tea, the tea's acidity may increase, causing discomfort and bloating.
