Deficits of tea bags[edit]

A lot of the claims about the problems with tea bags in the 'Packaging' section are un-cited assertions about the opinions of 'tea aficionados'. Claims like "The paper used for the bag can also be tasted by many" are, I think, inappropriate. Who are the 'many'? If these claims are the results of the author conveying his own sense of the anecdotal evidence he's been exposed to, that fails the Wikipedia verifiability guidelines. I propose deleting the sentences in that section that lack citations.

The article is still awash with unsubstantiated assertions and generalizations, many of which are highly questionable. --Ef80 (talk) 17:32, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Green/Black Tea[edit]

Under "History" it is stated that green and black tea both grow on the island. But the difference is only one of preparation, no? So this statement seems misleading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:17, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

The island? As for the difference between black and green teas, read Tea#Processing_and_classification. - Takeaway (talk) 14:19, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Translation question[edit]

Can anybody here answer the question about a type of Chinese tea posed here [1]? Jackiespeel (talk) 10:45, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Psychoactive drug and nootropic[edit]

Please add {{Nootropics}} and [[Category:Psychoactive drugs]] to the article as tea contain the psychoactive drug caffeine. -- (talk) 21:39, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
