As it depends on the type of tea, herbal vs non-herbal, and within herbal, it depends on the "herbs" included. In general most commercial teas are felt to be safe as long as consumed in moderation.

I'm currently 9 weeks prgnant. Is coffee/tea okay during pregnncy? & since I'm lactose intolerant, what can I take for my baby? Pls advise.
Decaf and lactofree: You can enjoy your teas and even some coffee, but I would realy stick to decaf as much as possible.

God made it so: Many plants -- including grapes, tree bark, and tea -- contain tannins. These are the plant's self-protective compounds that counteract bacteria and fungi by interfering with their surface proteins. They also discourage herbivores from eating them, with that "puckery" effect on the mouth plus interfering with digestion. Adding milk to tea allows tannins to attack the milk, rather than your mouth. ...Read more
