Not my cup of tea.
Isn't it curious how a cup of tea makes you feel better. Why is that? Is it the warmth?
I rather like this oddball little videoo. It speaks to the British fascination with Tea (It never really took off in America, tea that is. Could be something to do with the Boston Tea Party - when the colonists threw tea overboard as protest over British taxes).
I'e read some interesting books about hot beverages
Pour your heart into it by Starbuck's Howard
The Republic of Tea - Letters to a young zentrepreneur
The Devil's Cup
They're all pretty good.
I just tried to buy a copy of the Republic of Tea book from Amazon but it seems out of print and none of the used options seem to ship to New Zealand. Drat.
Scratch that - found an Amazon fulfilled used copy.
