Drinking Tea Bags is Not Conducive to Health

Published: Thursday 10 May, 2018

A study of 38 tea products by the University of Derby in the UK found that cheap tea bags sold in supermarkets contain more fluoride than good quality loose leaf tea. Among them, the fluoride content of green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and pu-erh tea is not the same.
Experts explained that tea is the main source of fluoride. The general leaf buds and other parts will be used to make more upscale tea, while the old leaves will be used to make cheap tea products, such as bagged tea. Therefore, try to buy well-made new tea and reduce the number of tea bags. In addition, experts have called for manufacturers and distributors to indicate the fluoride concentration on product packaging for the health of consumers.
