I heard not to take tylenol (acetaminophen) with green tea extract diet supplements what about regular green tea in a cup? Specifically decaf green tea bags

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.
