Abstract: This paper examines the place of tea in cultural and regulatory American society. Scientific evidence now abounds about the potential health benefits of tea, and this has put pressure on regulators at the Food and Drug Administration to insure that consumers are well protected. The health claims of tea must be evaluated and screened to avoid consumer fraud. To accomplish this, regulators must first determine what category tea falls under for purposes of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Unfortunately, this is no easy task given the wide array of potential uses for tea. Therefore, in a modern society where the Internet supplies much of consumers’ information, lawmakers and regulators will have to adopt a regulatory scheme that is equipped to handle a diverse and emerging product.
