Tea is undisputedly the beverage of Britain, with approximately 165 million cups of the stuff consumed in the country on a daily basis.
However, your inclination towards a brew could be doing more damage to your teeth than you realise.
According to Jordan Kirk, a dental expert for dental brand White Glo, all sorts of teas can cause your teeth to discolour.
“Tooth enamel is naturally porous and can absorb the tannins in tea, leading to unpleasant brown discolouration of your teeth,” he said.
Tea contains several compounds that have been known to stain teeth.
These include theaflavins, thearubigins and theabrownins, which have more of a discolouring effect on your teeth the stronger your brew.
