It could be tea's time...to take over the world?

Hey all! Michael, our marketing manager, has been cited in this article about how tea's future and the increase in tea drinking:

But, as all of you are savvy tea connoisseurs, most of the news in the article is probably nothing new. But if you read it, post your thoughts! What do you all think about tea becoming this new, 'hip' drink in America?

“It’s a sexy product,” says Malone, whose creatively named teas include Sun Blossom, Dragonwell Extra Special and Budding Love.

My favorite line:

"White teas, for example, do best with just three to four minutes of brewing in 18-degree water."

So THAT's what I'm doing wrong! I need to put ice in my water, not heat it!

:D

This is why i need to sell my house so i can get a life again..


I’m bringing green tea back
Them other black teas don’t know how to act
I think you're special, what's inside your bag?
So turn simmer down, I'll throw you back.



[Bridge]
Steeping tea
You see the teacup
Gren Tea I’m your slave
I’ll let you burn me if I misbehave
It’s just that no drink makes me feel this way

Take 'em to the chorus

[Chorus]
Come here sencha
Go ahead, start drinkin' it
Get in the cup
Go ahead, start brewin it
VIP
Go ahead, start drinkin' it
Don't spill on me
Go ahead, start brewin it
Let me see what you’re steepin in
Go ahead, start drinkin it
Look at those leaves
Go ahead, start brewin it
You make me smile
Go ahead, start drinkin it
Go ahead child
Go ahead, start brewin it
And get your sexy on
Go ahead, start drinkin it

Get your sexy on
Go ahead, start sippin it
[Repeat 6 times]

Get your sexy on

[Verse 2]
I’m bringing green tea back
Them other black teas don’t know how to act
Come let me sip up and steep your bag
'Cause you're burning up I gotta get it fast
