Tea maybe the elixir for the immortal but certainly for some people, tea can trigger off discomfort in their tummies.

Green tea seems to cause nausea for some with sensitive stomach.

In Chinese herbalism, green tea is cooling. If your body is already on the cool side, either by birth or sickness, green tea may give you a nauseating feeling.

In this case, try drinking black tea (you can always make it very light) or Pu-erh. Pu-erh is sometimes called the “Old Man’s Tea” because it is gentle to the stomach.

Natural chemicals in tea, such as caffeine can cause tummy upsets. This is also why some add milk to their tea, to neutralise the acidity in tea.
