Teas and Herbs with Tannin
Tannins are a group of unrelated chemicals that give plants an astringent taste. Herbs containing high amounts of tannins, such as green tea (Camellia sinensis), black tea, uva ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), black walnut (Juglans nigra), red raspberry (Rubus idaeus), oak (Quercus spp.), and witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana), may interfere with the absorption of atropine taken by mouth.1The interaction is supported by preliminary, weak, fragmentary, and/or contradictory scientific evidence.
