Organic tea oil?

Tea seed oil is used for cooking in China and has many positive qualities. However, based upon my limited research, the problem with tea seed oil is that it is comparable to grapeseed oil in being especially high in omega 6 fatty acids. We tend to get too much omega 6 in our diets and not enough omega 3, so cooking with or using tea seed oil in marinades, etc. is probably not a good choice. I would not hesitate to eat a little to experience the taste, but wouldn't adopt it as a regular part of my diet.
