Dear Nattie
There are so many herbal teas available that it is difficult to say which one will cause side-effects and which one won't. Generally speaking the herbal teas that cause chronic diarrhoea will have negative side-effects such as loss of normal bowel habits, dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, etc. You can probably use green tea as there are some research results that indicate that it has a slimming effect.
