Hi, I just found your great forum yesterday and this is a threat where I can provide some (hopefully interesting) information. :-)
I like Japanese culture and green tea is my main beverage for years.
There are a lot of different green teas existant that differ greatly in taste, quality, caffeine concentration and, of course, price. You can drink it warm or cold and it is said to be healthy. I like best sencha
I recommend this video on YouTube about tea production:
That cancer-thing from hot liquids should be no problem with green tea as it should steep in warm, not hot water. The highest-quality teas demand the lowest temperatures as they become bitter otherwise.
There is a nice website from a Japanese tea manufacturer
that explains the basic ideas of Japanese green tea in a quite amusing way.
Maybe, some of the more phantastic assertions could be sort of exaggerated as they want to sell their tea but I like the website though :-).
