For years I've been fascinated and puzzled by Joseph Sheridan LeFanu's story "Green Tea." Now comes word of a study that speaks to benefits of drinking green tea and contributes to the air of mystery that surrounds the beverage for me. This might be enough to drive me to the text of the story again; it should send me to some secondary texts as well.
