No effect: Drinking tea will have little or no effect on the liver. While there is theoretically some benefit in green tea, related to anti-oxidants in tea, the reality is that there is little data to show an improvement in survival. It certainly won't hurt you though. Getting your hepatitis B treated though, will help you from getting end-stage liver disease. See a liver doctor, a hepatologist.
