Living On Tea & Tea Radio

And you thought you liked tea. We're all rank amateurs when it comes to our tea-drinking pursuits, if a recent story in the Calcutta Telegraph is to be believed.

It concerns two men in India - who apparently don't know each other. Both claim to survive on nothing more than 20-plus cups of tea a day. One of the men says he's been doing so since 1985, when his wife committed the apparently grave error of serving his lunch late.

Now I have to say that I didn't just fall off the turnip truck, so I'm not sure what to make of all this. But it makes for interesting reading all the same. Here's the article.

The Food Progamme is a British radio show that recently focused their attentions on Chinese teas. More here (depending on when you're reading this, you may need to look in their program archive). Thanks to David in the UK for passing this one along.
