Is Tea The New Wine?

It's a question that's been asked before, but the Portsmouth Herald recently posed it in a fairly substantial two-part article about tea. In the first part, the reporter profiles Portsmouth Tea Company, whose co-owner Marshall Malone discourses on a range of subjects, including food and tea pairings.

Part two takes a look at White Heron Tea, another area merchant, this one with an emphasis on organic and Fair Trade teas.

Earlier this week the Cincinnati Enquirer weighed in on tea with a profile of a pair of local teahouses - Essencha and Kaori.

Last, but by no means least, is a report in the San Francisco Chronicle about spring harvest green tea making its way into area tea shops, of which there is no shortage. Those listed in this blip of an article are Imperial Tea Court, Modern Tea, Ten Ren and Celadon Tea.
