I was wondering if anyone else other than me has experienced this before? Are there incorrect ways to make matcha that could contribute to someone feeling nauseous?
It could be that you need a good liver cleanse due to excess fire in the stomach that travels there and ends up in the spleen (when liver Qi is stagnant in excess in the liver).

My advice undergo a good liver cleanse. If you need more info whim me a PM and I will provide you a couple of links.

Good luck.

Note: My breakfast every morning is Chinese green gong fu cha on an empty stomach and I feel I reached Nirvana while driving to work. One day I will have a serious crash. :mrgreen:
