I'm not sure if you've ever heard of Dr. Andrew Weil (one of America's 100 most influential people) but he's an M.D. in integrative medicine and supports the idea of drinking white and green tea. I'm an avid fan of his I guess you could say and I read more of his views again lately. Although tea does contain fluoride, you'd have to drink hundreds of cups a day for it to be toxic. Having a few cups a day is very good for us according to him (and according to Teavana and otherwise) and the small amount of fluoride teas provide us protect us from gingivitis.
