Default Some frightening issues about tea

I almost wish I hadn't read this, since ignorance is bliss. But I feel compelled to spread the word.

you do realize that this may be fabricated and it is considerably more complex that this article states. the research firm is actually a short seller and the companies are providing data that suggests otherwise.

Very interesting, thanks!

As for green tea, tea bags usually have less catechins than loose leaf tea, too.

It's really best just to buy loose leaf tea and brew it yourself. I usually buy green tea from Japan with no artificial flavors, just tea leaves.

That is certainly true. This issue has been an area of concern to me for some time as I find the outright deception from many quarters of the tea industry lauding the health benefits of tea while at the same time selling highly toxic products very disgusting. I alluded to this issue some time ago in my blog: http://www.vintageteacompany.com/blo...ffects-of-tea/ (note: I have a conflict of interest here as I am the founder of Vintage Tea Company which sells organic tea...).

Hi Vanessa,
Thanks for posting this. Another advantage to organic teas (if you needed one after reading that article), is that they preserve the health and the environment of the people who pick and process them.

Cheers,
Sophie
