I've been lurking on your board for a few weeks and debating on whether or not to post, as I am just a tea-snob-in-training. (I have the paper hat and crappy store bought tea bag pinned to my lapel to prove it.)
I read the most annoying article this morning, and I was wondering what or if anyone over here would have anything to say about it.
The article is called "Can Green Tea Save Your Soul?" and it's by Jacob Weisberg, the oh, so droll individual who has in no way sold out by pumping out umpteen number of the Bush-ism books. (If I'm not mistaken. Could be a different guy. Frankly, more power to him, if he hadn't picked on my drink of choice.)
Anyway, he rips on the new Green Tea marketing blitz, i.e. Green Tea Candles, Green Tea soap, Green Tea Marital Aids, etc. etc., some of which I happen to agree with. Americans tend to hop onto whatever health food fad that whizzes by and expect it to make up for their otherwise fat-laden, sedentary lifestyle.
But it's really the way he says it that makes me want to toss my cup of Lemon Green Tea onto his keyboard.
So here's the address:
Perhaps I am overreacting. But I defy you to read it and not want to strangle him, just a little bit, until he cries and admits he's wrong, and offers to foot your tea bill for a year.
