Tea Plantation & The New Coffee

Is tea the new coffee? Damned if I know, but that's a question that people seem to be fond of posing over and again. A recent example pops up in the Business Edge, an Ontario publication that took a look at Canadian coffee drinkers and their increasing interest in tea.

We've written about the Charleston Tea Plantation - America's only such creature - several times over the last month or so. It's been featured in several major newspapers lately, with the Chicago Tribune the latest to take a crack at writing about it. Also appearing in this Sunday's papers was an article on the plantation that originally ran in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

We're in the opposite situation here in Ireland with coffee becoming the new tea! It's a nation of tea drinkers marching toward the bean.

Still, perhaps such experience will open people's mind and when they return to the leaf, perhaps they will search out more interesting teas and experiment beyond the generic stuff drowned in milk.

Thanks for keeping up your blog! It's always an interesting read.
