Actually, this hardly had anything to do with Crohn's disease... basically, I stopped drinking coffee because it was causing me too much pain, and switched over to green tea which has a lot less caffeine and is less acidic than either coffee or black tea. I was doing fine with that, but ever since a week or so the tea's started to taste very salty. I tried boiling my water in different implements, different brands of tea... no dice. I figure something's either wrong with me or with the water. Does anyone else's tea taste of salt?
