Is my dry mouth and lips related to tea drinking?
Since tea is predominantly water, drinking more tea can be an excellent way to increase your water intake. Of course, many teas contain caffeine which can be dehydrating. It is important to always stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.
We recommend starting your day with warm water, rather than tea. After an entire night of rest, digestion, and no intake of fluids, your body is badly craving hydration when you first awake. After you have hydrated with warm water, you may enjoy your first cup of tea.
Always be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. If you prefer to hydrate with tea, we recommend using more water to dilute the concentration of the tea. So, instead of using 8 ounces of water to prepare one tea sachet, try using 16 ounces or more.
