Uzbekistan, Vietnam & Britney Spears

You might be wondering what Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Britney Spears have in common. Of course, since this is Tea Guy Speaks, it's probably not too hard to figure out.

Here's an interesting article about tea-drinking and tea culture in Uzbekistan. It's not very long, but it's worth a look.

For some thoughts on the Vietnamese tea-serving art and Mr. Truong Xuan, one of the practitioners of that art, check out this article from VietNamNet. It seems that a little something might have been lost in the translation to English, but it's also worth a look.

Then there's Britney Spears. Perhaps you've heard of her. In an excerpt from an interview with the Today Show's Matt Lauer, Ms. Spears suddenly throws out the following observation - "I make good tea okay?"

Well, okay. That's all we needed to hear.
