How Tea Became Hip
By William I. Lengeman III

How did tea become hip? Hold on a minute. Things have improved in recent years or perhaps even decades, but one could still argue that tea is suffering from an image problem. You know the one – staid tea rooms frequented by ladies of a certain age, neatly trimmed crustless sandwiches, and so on. Not to mention that for many people tea still conjures up visions of black dust crammed into ultra-cheap tea bags, resulting in a beverage that leaves much to be desired.
