Tea Seed Oil


Does anyone here use tea seed oil for cooking instead of the extra virgin olive oil?

It's supposed to have the same amount of monounsaturated fats as olive oil, but has antioxidants and a longer shelf life. And perhaps cheaper?

I don't ever hear or read about it. Just thought that maybe it's an availability issue or something.


Olive oil has some anti-oxidants too. As do basicly anything that comes from plants.
