Camomille or Chamoille ,as some call it , is not tea at all. It is stamen( the male part producing pollen in flower ) dried from the flowers of a plant with same name , grown in Europe .It has very soothing and calming effect , unlike tea which acts as stimulant . In iIndia , people in Himachal add Rhododendron petals for the same effect . Tea prepared from Green unprocessed leaves has very ghood quality Flavanoids ( anti oxidants )and is good for heealth. While the processed CTC (general Black Tea ) variety has very little of these good effects ( 70- 80 % lost during processing ) and added are some bad effects .

Desi Masalaa (Khalsa Tea , desi chai or Chahta , Saunfa , GHaram Jal omg so many names ) is a concoctions of spices only sans real tea , and is good for general health & digestion

I can't recall specifics, but apparently the caffeine in tea isn't desirable. It's meant to be almost a drug of sorts. Of course, it won't damage a person like hard drugs, lol, but I think it disturbs an individual's spiritual equilibrium if you're into that sort of thing.

My direct experience with tea is that it will spoil your restful sleep at night so that you are not fresh enough to wake up at Amrit vela. That way you start slipping in your routine. However tea taken at the right time - before noon sometimes can be a better option. When I went off tea completely, I was feeling too sleepy or I would sleep too much. Therefore it is an individual choice, it may help your spiritual life or it may decline it. Black tea without sugar is the best as milk acts to neutralise the healing effects of the antioxidants which exist in normal tea.
