While drinking small amounts of tea is okay, drinking too much can effect your kidneys, making them work harder. Some tea has caffeine which is harmful in great amounts. Make sure to drink lots of water every day if you are a tea drinker so it counteracts the caffeine in tea.

Non-caffeinated teas and herbal teas are nonharmful fluids. Drinking plenty of fluids when one has no pre-existing kidney problems is good for the renal system.
