Awesome, the amount of the brown stuff I consume on a daily basis, I’m never going to develop T2
PS, slightly drunk, will try and not flood …….

I have a biscuit to dunk in it? Or would that negate the effect? And will someone please tell the yanks, you don’t have cream in tea. Milk, yes, but not cream.

drank my tea (and I use the word loosely) black in the states, just safer all round!
As to biscuits nullifying the effect, I haven’t noticed any T2 like symptoms yet so I’m assuming biscuits are OK!

I’ve drunk it by the pot (not cup) since late teens – didn’t prevent cataracts that developed a year after diagnosis, though…but it could be of diabetic use, as it contains theophylline, which makes you more hypo-aware. It also inhibits absorption of iron, so don’t swallow your FeSO4-tablets with it.
Sugar? How could you put a lid on that tangy, bitter edge…do you add it to beer, too?

Hmmm, maybe the theophylline explains my almost always excellent hypo awareness?! I get through gallons of the stuff on a good day
not gonna read the science, I’ll just believe it, and continue with my industrial quantities in the ‘knowledge’ that it’s helping me avoid later issues
Definitely no cream, but a biscuit or two to dunk is surely essential for a good tea drinking experience?!

just worked out I drank 12 pints of tea today, and that’s an average day Is there such a thing as theophylline overdose?!

pints of tea? Blimey! That knocks my coffee addiction into a cocked hat (whatever a cocked hat is?)

Cocked hat? It would spill out!
I’ve been led to believe I was weened on the stuff, it’s been an addiction (one of many!) ever since. You don’t want to meet me at 10am when I haven’t had at least my first three buckets of tea …….

– 12 PINTS?! Bleedin’ Nora! I find myself pissing everywhere after a couple of (admittedly big, almost pint sized) mugs! I salute your bladder, sir!
