I have also my limit of tea. My stomach is quite sensitive to everithink so if I drink tea, I drink it slovely, in small amounts and rather often than once and lot. In my case the quality of the tea is important to prevent any digestation problems. And yep, never drink tea on empty stomach.

Yeah that's it. There's something to those multiple infusions, because when I drink something like two cups of earl grey, and then a cup of oolong a little later, all that happens is that I can tell I have a lot of caffeine in me. It does not give me a headache though.

With Oolong when I infuse it many times, the effects kind of just creep up on me. I feel fine, and I don't even feel like I do after drinking coffee, but then I get a bad long lasting headache. This only happens when I drink 6 cups though, and on an empty stomach.

As for stomach upsets, I don't get them from tea. Well I get a very short lasting stomach upset sometimes after drinking Pu-erh, but for the most part tea usually makes my stomach feel better.

hmm..never too much..i am oblivious or impoervious to caffeine..so I drink late at night. never had any stomach issues either.
but in actuality outside of long tea days on the weekends my tea drinking doesnt start til dinner time and goes on til i go to bed after midnight. but that may be only one session of multiple steeps if its an Oolong or now Pu's

try some aged oolong tea. it can comfort your stomach easier than the fresh tea.
