OMG! Green tea OD!!!

Too much of a good thing?

Apparently, people can OD on green tea. Sort of. Overuse of supplements of green tea's polyphenols (which contain 50 times the amount in one cup) can lead to liver toxicity. (See link above.) Personally, I'll just stick with the real thing!

Speaking of which, I had a good Nishi (First Flush Sencha) from Rishi today. The astringency and sweetness were well-balanced, and it wasn't overdone (as I find some sencha to be).
