I am building up a nice repository of articles. In fact, a good review just came out about the chemistry of catechins.
I am highly skeptical of much of the tea lore. That's why the tea classics really don't do much for me. It seems that most of the art of tea is just based on the placebo effect. If its good tea and you like it, great.
