Default Tea, Health and the FDA

I rarely start new threads having enough to do just keeping up with
other people's - but this topic needs exposure. Though only affecting
herbal teas so far:

this, if true, it is likely to attract FDA heavy handed censorship in
Camellia sinensis marketing when the physiological benefits of EGCG
and theanine come to the fore.

Does anyone have more information about the FDA stance on this?
