Having recently recovered from a traumatic motorcycle accident in which you lost your arm, you are faced with the rehabilition process. The latest in modern technology, the KS-001 Robo-arm is capable of many delicate tasks - but you will need to learn to use it efficently. What better first task for the son of an Earl than to make a cup of tea for his father?

Dogs, chimps, scary clowns and Star Trek's Captain Picard. What do they have in common? They all appear in the videos that have made their way into our top 10 list of most popular tea videos. But none are so popular as a video in which actor Alan Rickman prepares a cup of tea and then has a change of heart. All of which plays out in very slow motion.
Here are the links to the videos, in order of popularity.

A Mild Rant About $1,000 Tea
By William I. Lengeman III
At the risk of seeming a bit insensitive, I’m going to go out on limb here. I’m going to go so far as to say that, if someone can get you to part with $1,000 for a cup of tea, they deserve your money. Perhaps you’re not sensible enough to be carrying around such large sums.
But seriously, folks. Let’s look into this notion of $1,000 tea a little further. According to the local press in South Australia the hoity-toity crowd in and around Melbourne “are regularly paying up to $18 for a cup of tea at some city cafes.” That’s about $16.67 in US dollars, which sounds just a little rich for my blood and by the way that works out to a little more than $3,300 a pound (US) for whatever fine tea they might be serving up down there.

The film is a sequence of montages that shows four different people making tea in a tea shop. A ten year old boy selling tea in Bombay at the Gateway Of India, An 18 year old girl with her tea shop in a mid level town, A 19 year old Kashmiri lad in a Barrista and An 80 year old man's tea shop in a busy Kerala bus stand.

Thank you for checking out Karoo Red Tea. We think you will be surprised just how good all natural and nothing artificial can really taste.
I found it interesting how we are drawn to sweeter things; it is at our very core.But the down side of favoring sweet usually means higher calories or even worse, artificial and processed ingredients.Not being a proponent of the diet zero calorie options or processed sugars, I asked why we couldn’t enjoy a real health choice without sacrificing taste and refreshment and that was all it took.
I discovered the power of Rooibos (pronounced Roy Boss) commonly known as red tea a few years back. Since then we’ve been shouting it’s praises to anyone willing to listen. Naturally caffeine free, Rooibos’ low tannin levels when compared to black tea or green tea products, and it’s high level of antioxidants makes red teaanother one of nature’s divine gifts that are so beneficial to a healthy lifestyle.
Expanding on a truly refreshing and novel tea beverage, I took the initiative to combine the tea with real fruit and Karoo Red Tea blended flavors were added to the selection. We’ve been working hard, perfecting the formula, designing a label, testing and sampling the product, locating a production facility and talking to retailers.And now we are ready to go!
