I recently heard this thing about how green tea is picked by virgin maidens who can't eat spicy foods, the reasoning being this prevents off flavors from passing on to the delicately scented tea leaves whiled being picked. Does anybody know if this is actually true?

If yes then WOW! I'd definately have a brand new appreciation for tea!
