Hi fellas my friend told me that tea, whether green or black, washes your body of nutrients. Is that true, cause I drink like 3-4 litres of tea a day.

why would it?

I know tea has tanic acid. Other then that, I dunno what could be so active in tea.
It sounds like it can be reactive with protein (in a positive or negative way).
*waits for a biochemist to join thread* lol

yes, drink it. it has antioxidants. it doesnt necessarily "wash the body of nutrients" but it will help to flush out excess ones, hence the phrase taking a piss.
i drink about 1-2 liters of green tea a day, its perfectly fine
