My throat gets extremely dry after drinking coffee or tea. It helps if milk is added to it but it still gets dry after washing it down with water.
> coffee and tea contain compounds that make your mouth feel dry. The sensation is called astringency, and when it's major, your mouth actually can feel puckered. In wine and strong tea, it's the tannins that can turn your mouth and throat into the Mojave . In coffee, it's the chlorogenic acid, which is beneficial to your health. Your green tea at sufficient strength probably would be just as drying.
Anyone else like this? There's nothing to drink when hanging out with friends since I don't enjoy alcohol.
