Caffeine interaction: The concern is not green tea per se but that high doses of caffeine can increase toxicity of tylenol (acetaminophen) to the liver. Some green tea diet supplements are high in caffeine but regular green tea is quite safe, either decaf or regular- it would take about 100 cups of green tea to get too much caffeine. See http://abcnews.Go.Com/health/healthday/story?Id=4508811 taking nac with tylenol (acetaminophen) reduces toxicity.
