Bubble Tea, Killer Tea & More

Before we get to the tea, here's another one of my shameless plugs. My latest food article, The Strange and Wonderful World of Peanut Butter, is now posted at Epicurean Online. If you're looking for the lowdown on peanut butter steak, peanut butter beer, deep-fried peanut butter cups and more, have a look.

Now, the tea stuff.

If you haven't tried bubble tea yet, what are you waiting for? For those of you in Chicago or planning to visit, here's an article from the CBS 2 Web site on the local bubble tea scene.

Boing Boing mentioned the other day that a Japanese firm has built "a cafe inspired by the Mad Hatter's Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland." Imagine that.

What are The Rewards of a 'Drinkable Antique'? Find out here, in an article from the International Herald Tribune. The article is about pu'er tea (in case you didn't guess), which tends to get better as it gets older.

Speaking of pu'er tea, here's an article from the Good T Room site called The Secrets of Pu-er Uncovered? They've also got an interesting one about yellow tea and a page with seven links to articles about Tea Expeditions. Worth a look.

From the Manila Standard, here's an article on killer tea. Well, not really. It's actually an article about the urban legends that have sprung up around plastic beverage bottles.
