I understand green and white tea is Camellia sinensis sinensis, whereas black, oolong and pu-erh tea is camellia senensis assamica. May we assume you're bought the green tea variety css, and not csa?

Don't drink gallon of tea everyday. It can damage your liver and the delicate kidney organs.

Thanks for the info. Was wondering if these tea plants have less fluoride than the ones you buy at the grocery store?
