In simple words a tea rinse is water infused with tea that is used to rinse the hair after wash or after shampoo.Tea rinse can trigger common problems related to hair.
The idea about ideal tea as a beverage is different for different people. Some say green tea is more healthy and is better than black tea, and then there are people like me who are happy with both green and black tea.
