What is it that gives tea it's diuretic property? Is it the caffeine or some other part of the tea leaf?
Nothing wrong with that, it's proper Army Tea. At least that's the way my Mother described it when she had a cup years ago.Mr_Deputy said:For the last 15 years I have been trapped in a continous cycle of making tea, pissing back in the pot and making more tea. Please. Help me.
Decaff has up to 20-25% of the caffeine of normal coffee/tea. But if you drink any fluid in any volume, you will probably p!ss it out. Unless there's something wrong with youwestern said:
Sparkling fluids can have a shorter residence time in the gut - is certainly the case for alcoholic drinks. Not sure it would be appreciable though for a can of sparkling water. Water is water! Although sparkling water is more acidic [carbonic acid] and if you only drink it you'd be more likely to get tummy ache than dehydrated.Mr_Deputy said:An American friend claims that sparkling water/soda has no hydrating qualities at all.
Is this true?
