Green Tea to Prevent Flu?

Question:
Can green tea help prevent the flu?

Answer:
Preliminary research suggests that drinking green tea during flu season may reduce the risk of getting the flu. Gargling with green tea may also help — a practice that is common in Japan. The evidence for green tea supplements, is less clear. More details are in the Flu section in the Green Tea Review. (which includes tests and comparisons of brewable green teas, supplements, matcha, and bottled green tea).

I have been drinking Green Tea for several years because I don't like black tea or combinations thereof. I also don't get flu shots and don't get the flu! I wash mys hands returning from outside my home. I am 93+ y.o. That is my story!
