Blair Grumbles About Tea
From time to time someone steps forward to bemoan what's said to be the declining state of tea-drinking in Britain. Back in late 2005, the Wall Street Journal revealed that Starbucks was tempting Brits to give up their cup of tea in favor of you-know-what. For another take on the same topic, see what ABC News had to say earlier this year.
The latest person to fuss about the state of British tea is the soon to be former primer minister, Tony Blair. In an interview with NPR, he agreed that it was impossible to get a good cup of tea in London. He also confessed that he drank coffee when in mainland Europe, due to the general lack of tea-making expertise there. For the BBC's take on things, look here.
