So, long time, die-hard tea-drinkers, what's the reality when it comes to your constant, sustained, regular tea-drinking (green tea especially) and nutrient absorption (and *alleged* blockage thereof.)
I'm drinking a lot of high-quality loose-leaf teas - often the same as yourselves. Sencha, Oolong, Chinese greens, etc. I'm hearing lots of warnings (mostly from those who don't drink tea regularly) about the dangers of tea inhibiting nutrient absorption. Elsewhere, however, I'm reading that those who drink tea regularly and for prolonged periods (years) have acclimated to tea and enjoy it without any ill effects.
By all accounts I should have collapsed by now. And YOU too! From Beriberi, vitamin B deficiency, non-heme iron deficiency, etc.
So what's the deal?
