The Onion lampoons deserving tea and tea drinkers in its frontpage article "Fancy Man Enjoys Tea". As usual, brilliantly done.
"The 29-year-old web designer prepared and consumed his precious tea, which is imported from some la-di-da foreign country, at about 10:30 a.m with the loving attention of a brittle, shawl-wearing spinster."
And that's with a guy who uses tea bags. I wonder how bitter it would get with some of the more othodox tea habits, like loose leaf.
UPDATE - Apparently the "full" article is available in the print edition of The Onion.
