Strong tea should never be used in large quantities. Hard-working women and others too often make their meals of dry toast and several cups of strong tea. Such a habit is sure to result in indigestion. Taken in large quantities tea may weaken the action of the heart, and produce the peculiar beating, which sometimes occurs after much exertion, and is known as palpitation; hence we have the “tea-drinker’s heart.” Coffee and tea are hurtful articles of diet for growing boys and girls, and doubtless all would be in better health without these beverages.
