I am an avid tea drinker. I can’t quite remember exactly when I began drinking tea, or who introduced it to me for that matter….but now I’m a believer, and even more so, I’ve become a proselytizer. Give me 30 mins. and I will show you the world that can exist in a tea cup, in all its wonderment and subtlety.
Now, let me also say that if you’ve never had tea that didn’t come in a cardboard box, or sit in your cup in a little bag, you’ve never had tea. You’ve had s**t in a cup. And s**t is not tea.
That stuff…it isn’t tea. It’s not real tea. More accurately, it’s not good tea. Lipton, Celestial Seasonings, etc….those are the McDonald’s and Burger Kings of the tea world. They’re not toxic waste, but if the only hamburger you’ve ever eaten is a McDonald’s burger….oh my!!! You’ve never had a hamburger!!!
