For The Love Of Tea
From time to time various media outlets "discover" the fact that a whole lot of people around the world drink tea and that Americans are finally starting to get into catch-up mode.
For example, there's the Chicago Tribune, who recently marveled at tea's "surge in sales" in this, our coffee-centric society. These articles tend to be similar in focus but, of course, this one has a Chicago slant. Read it here.
For some thoughts on where to go for a sip in the Houston area, check out this recent article - Tea: The Other Hot Beverage - from the Houstonist.
For a more in-depth look at the "social significance" of tea, try Andy Isaacson's quite interesting Steeped in Tea, which appeared recently in Utne Reader.
