Q: Is old tea poisonous?

All the Chinese teachers at my school say this and I got conflicting answers when I googled it. I have a thermos I keep at work. Sometimes there's 1 or 2 day old tea left and I just refill it with hot water and  new tea bag. Is that bad?

Old tea is the biggest killer in China.
The tea bud sport tropisms which are know to want to conquer the world.

If someone gives you old tea, you know they are trying to kill you.
You should report them to the local police IMMEDIATELY.

Ps. Didn't realise they had 't-bags' for green tea. Perhaps they put the poisonous stuff in those bags or it becomes poisonous after. Either way, they should carry a health warning "These bags are poison!" - Maybe something like that. To alert shoppers, you know.

It's hard to confirm that it's poisonous or not. There are so many factors you need to take into consideration.concentration, mankind, ingredient of the old tea etc

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
