EGCG Knitting Chart - A Molecule from Green Tea

There are a lot of Molecule Knitting Charts here on ChemKnits.  The charts that I've shared in recent years aren't ones that I've decided to chart on my own, but I've made at a reader's request. 

When I received the following comment, "Does green tea have it's own molecule?"  I knew that I was curious and did some research.  It turns out, the reader was right!  You're right! Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is an antioxidant in green tea that may have therapeutic uses.  This compound is a potent antioxidant found only in green tea, not black tea. I will add it to my list of molecule charts to create.
