Tea is a diuretic

Fact

Tea does not have a diuretic effect due to caffeine, unless the amount of tea consumed at one sitting contains more than 250 - 300mg caffeine, which is equivalent to between five and six cups of tea. In fact, due to the volume of fluid that is drunk whilst enjoying a cuppa', the British Dietetic Association advises that tea can contribute towards the daily-recommended fluid intake of 1.5 to 2 litres.
