"If you are drinking modest amounts of green tea you're very safe," says Prof Herbert Bonkovsky, director of liver services at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina, who has been tracking injuries linked to green tea supplements for nearly 20 years. "The greater risk comes in people who are taking these more concentrated extracts."
For green tea infusions, EFSA’s experts concluded that there is generally no indication of liver damage even after high consumption, and that the few cases of liver damage reported in humans are likely due to rare and unpredictable reactions. Experts therefore considered catechins from green tea infusions brewed with hot water, and instant and ready-to-drink green tea beverages with similar catechin content, as generally safe.For food supplements, EFSA’s experts concluded – on the basis of human studies conducted with volunteers under medical supervision – that doses of EGCG at 800 mg/day may be associated with initial signs of liver damage. While there was no indication of liver injury for doses below 800 mg/day from green tea supplements, experts were unable to identify a safe dose based on available data.
Results of this review, although not conclusive, suggest that liver-related adverse events after intake of green tea extracts are expected to be rare.

When you think of Indian tea, you probably think of rich, spicy chai. Don't get me wrongâ€”chai's greatâ€”but I don't think it's the most interesting tea to come out of the country. For a brew that's at once delicate, assertive, and totally unique, you have to go with Darjeeling.

Jasmine tea (Chinese: èŒ‰èŽ‰èŠ±èŒ¶; pinyin: mÃ²lÃ¬huÄ chÃ¡) is tea scented with aroma from jasmine blossoms to make a scented tea. Typically, jasmine tea has green tea as the tea base; however, white tea and black tea are also used. The resulting flavour of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant. It is the most famous scented tea in China...
â€˜You be very careful how you fool about with that stuff. Did I ever tell you about poor Buffy Struggles back in â€˜ninety-three? Some misguided person lured poor old Buffy into one of those temperance lectures illustrated with coloured slides, and he called on me next day ashen, poor old chap â€“ ashen. â€œGaily,â€ he said. â€œWhat would you say the procedure was when a fellow wants to buy tea? How would a fellow set about it?â€ â€œTea?â€ I said. â€œWhat do you want tea for?â€ â€œTo drink,â€ said Buffy. â€œPull yourself together, dear boy,â€ I said. â€œYouâ€™re talking wildly. You canâ€™t drink tea. Have a brandy-and-soda.â€ â€œNo more alcohol for me,â€ said Buffy. â€œLook what it does to the common earthworm.â€ â€œBut youâ€™re not a common earthworm,â€ I said, putting my finger on the flaw in his argument right away. â€œI dashed soon shall be if I go on drinking alcohol,â€ said Buffy. Well, I begged him with tears in my eyes not to do anything rash, but I couldnâ€™t move him. He ordered in ten pounds of the muck and was dead inside the year.â€™
Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship. Built on the Clyde in 1869 for the Jock Willis Shipping Line, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion. The opening of the Suez Canal (also in 1869) meant that stea...
