Green tea goes mainstream

Newsweek has an article about the ever-rising popularity of green tea.

One thing I've noticed about such articles in general: They fail to mention that the polyphenols and other antioxidants in green tea begin to break down a few hours after brewing. So that ready-to-drink bottled green tea sitting on your grocer's shelves, and that green tea frappuccino made with a green tea syrup made in some factory who knows when, don't have nearly the amount of antioxidants as good, old-fashioned freshly brewed bulk green tea.

It's up to us to get the word out.
