I drink tea every morning, because I like it (can’t stand the taste of coffee). My bp runs too low because of a pill I need to take each night that drops my bp (I don’t have high bp, even without the pill) It would be interesting to see if my lightheadness from low bp would diminish if I skipped the tea. Now all I have to do is figure out how to avoid the craving for my morning tea!! :slight_smile:
