Can tea be bad for you if you have a B12 deficiency or penicious anemia? Or not help your blood count?

In brief: You're okay

Tea contains tannins that interfere some with iron absorption in folks who are iron deficient.
Too much can make you sick, as with many other things. It's not going to impact an anemia caused by B12 deficiency from any cause.
