I should have added green tea to my list. I drink a lot of green tea Japanese, not Chinese.
I Tomo Sencha, House Sencha/Matcha, Hojicha, Genmaimatcha, and my favorite because it can be reused for many cups: Okumidori sencha. At the time, I could not see any difference in my bladder or control performance.
Volume was the only deciding factor. If I drank a lot, I peed/leaked a lot.
I even... I even... (I'm almost too embarrassed to say this so I'll just get it out of the way.) I even measured what I call "sub-measureable leak". That is, leakage that is lost due to evaporation on cold dry days with low relative humidity. (Yes, my equipment is that sensitive.) Even factoring for that, I could not see a difference.
Pity my poor, poor wife.
