Give them credit for introducing loose leaf teas to previously non-tea-drinkers. They introduce new people to the wonderful world of tea every day. To my mind, anything that increases public awareness and positive attitude towards tea is good for all of us.
I agree with you on this. For the same reason, I am grateful that Starbucks introduced me to coffee, although the last time I bought from them was probably 8-9 years ago.
I speak of seven plagues in America,
Teavana,Wal-Mart,Star-bucks,Kindles,Mcdonalds,Facebook, and Kardashians
I think Teavana and Starbucks make their contributions for above-mentioned reasons. Walmart is poor people's shopping heaven. Not all the people can afford better stores. I'm ok with kindle. I downloaded kindle reader on my computer and read Amazon's free kindle version classics
I have no complain on facebook either. At least so far it's free
I don't know what Kardashians is
If I were to name 7 plagues in America, I would save a few seats for investment banks, and definitely one for Monsanto. Compared with them, Teavana is angel
