I have been drinking green tea for most of my adult life and I have to say that I'm glad I do. I never really got into the whole sugary soda thing growing up. My parents never really bought a lot of it anyways. Now I can look back and be thankful they didn't.

I drink herbal tea all the time myself. I gave up things like sodas about ten years ago. I missed them at first, but then you get over it once you have a healthy substitute. I always have several of these teas on hand for a good variety.

Top 5 Herbal Teas For Diabetics

Ive seen many articles on giving tea to birds, for several purpose. Ive also seen many specialized bird teas. Its common to give it to Toucans, though I have heard it being given to other birds as well, parrots being commonly accustomed to drink it.

Ive even seen the same company that sells avian flight suits, sell specialized tea. Apparently, their tea helps give vitamins and nutrience in birds, to stay healthy. Ive also heard of people using herbal teas like chamomile, to calm birds that feel anxious.

So Im wondering if anyone here brews tea for their birds. Do you use a certain kind? I have a bunch of different herbal, non-caffeinated teas, and Im suddenly a little bit curious, on what I may use for my birds I say birds, because Im considering my parents pionus, as well. If you do use it, what is your experience with tea and birds?
