Mmmm...Diluted Sugar Water

If you've been tuned in here for a while then you know my opinions about the alleged health benefits of tea. In fact, you're probably tired of hearing me prattle on about it. But to summarize as briefly as I can - health benefits are fine and dandy, but I drink tea because I like tea.

Now, if you too have reason to suspect that the health benefits of tea were sometimes being...overstated, then you might find this report interesting. It's from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University and it says that the health benefits of certain formulations of tea may have been, well...overstated.

And you gotta love that comment about "diluted sugar water."
