Is Coca tea illegal?
Simply so, is Coca tea illegal in the UK?
Don't take coca leaves or coca tea out of the country. It's illegal to import these items into the UK.
Subsequently, question is, how long does coca tea stay in your urine? This study has shown that consumption of one cup of coca tea results in detectable concentrations of cocaine metabolites in the urine for at least 20 h.
Similarly, is the coca plant illegal?
Use and possession of cocaine is illegal. Cultivation of coca plants is legal, and coca leaves are sold openly on markets. Similarly to Bolivia, chewing leaves and drinking coca tea are cultural practices.
What does Coca tea taste like?
Coca tea, similar in taste to several other traditional teas, is a mild stimulant, not as strong as coffee. At the same time, it does produce a slight narcotic effect, a barely perceptible feeling of euphoria. Bolivians drink mate de coca and serve it to others as casually as Americans drink coffee.
