Leo_Blue wrote:Exactly! Here the mentality is (grossly generalizing here) that tea is in the same category of unhealthy habits that tobacco and alcohol are part of. I just recently put in an order for some '12 first flush greens and want a friend that is really into the food and beverage industry come over and try them. Unfortunately I am expecting a possible hesitation on his part because of his religious views. I don't have any problem with that, but it still does bring a dragonwell flavored tear to my eye.

I know some people here that will not even drink herbal tea because it has the word tea in it, and I know others that will buy a cup of coffee on the way home from church (coffee is also part of the things they can't have). This person in particular is training to be a chef and tastes wines and other spirits that are part of recipes he makes (also something they can't have and frowned upon even more than tea or coffee). So in his case it's kind of a pick and choose type thing it seems.
