Tea Room Tyrant

From Britain's Daily Mail comes the story of a tea merchant who's being called "the granny who turned tyrant of the tea rooms".

Apparently the whole flap got underway with said tyrant's boundary dispute with one of her neighbors. Things turned decidedly nasty and the tyrannical granny found herself in court, where her behavior didn't improve much.

Perhaps a change to something decaffeinated is in order? Maybe a nice chamomile?

Also from the British press, comes a report, in the Guardian, about Brits' reluctance to travel abroad without their favorite foods and beverages. If you guessed that tea was on the list - well, duh. It's estimated that the British take "22,610,000 packets of tea bags" with them when vacationing abroad every year.
