The $2,500 bottle of green tea

That is a lot to pay for a bottle of green tea.

Not only are quality greens available for much less [hint, hint], but green tea's free-radical-fighting catechins begin breaking down soon after brewing, which is why freshly brewed tea is so much healthier for you.

(Bottled teas that tout their high EGCG content, for instance, have boosted the catechin artificially.)

Billed as "the green tea you enjoy in a wine glass."
