5 out of 5 stars

I had a bad migraine yesterday and was throwing and feeling very nauseas. I couldn't keep food or drink down (even water). I checked here to see what people recommended and tried honey by itself (did not work), also tried the ACV and baking soda (did not work). I finally tried the black tea suggestion. I put two tea bags of black tea in hot water and let it sit for a short while. I sipped it slowly and did not vomit again and the nausea seemed to go away as well.

I agree with all the YEA's for the black tea. I have never heard of this. My mom told me to go get Emuterol to stop the cycle of vomiting, but I just couldn't get out of the house. I read these posts and looked in our cabinet and we just happened to have Lipton black tea flavored with vanilla. I honestly think it has been in there for 5 years. Anyway, I sipped down one coffee mug of it slowly and was able to calm my stomach a bit and keep from throwing up. Next step - trying to eat and I am starting with the BRAT diet ...

NEA Unfortunately this remedy did not work for me or my daughter. We both had been vomiting for about 5 hours when I decided to look up ways to stay hydrated and came across this site. I brewed two black tea bags in one cup of water for about 7 minutes till very dark. We each took a few sips for a little while then tried to rest. Both of us continued to have stomach cramps and while I have not vomited again I still feel like I may, and my daughter has continued to vomit.

I give black tea a YEA for eliminating vomiting. Thank GOD I found this site and suggestion. I have food poisoning with vomiting and diarrhea for 12 hours now. It was so painful to vomit because there is NOTHING in my body and it was literally gut wrenching pain. Nothing over the counter worked so I asked my husband to go buy some black tea. Well he found 1 tea bag from a hotel or some odd place that I had stashed in the kitchen. I drank it plain and strong and it worked immediately. Now I only have diarrhea and much milder stomach cramps but the painful vomiting is over.
