Step Away From The Green Tea

OMG, it’s bad enough bunnies are being born without ears but when Japan’s green tea is contaminated with friggin radiation…everybody panic. Hmm, yes Japan’s biggest growing tea area, the Shizuoka prefecture, is reeling after high levels of radiation were recorded from this year’s first harvest.  The scary part is the radiation was found by accident after a mail order Tokyo company had it privately tested. Authorities fear contaminated tea may have already gone to market, which wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the fact around 42% of Japan’s green tea comes from the Shizoka area. Green tea is to Japan what Champagne is to France. Needless to say the tea growers are friggin furious, not to mention the Loon, who drinks copious amounts of imported Japanese Gyokuro green tea.
