Tea in the News

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.

"Those close to the tea-sipper have known about Baumer's refined predilection for hot beverages for years, but shockingly have not ostracized him for it."


It was a great article, and thank you for bringing it to our attention. Curiously enough, my brain decided to narrate it for me in the voice of Jim Dale...which just made the whole thing even better.

I have to say, I thought of you when I read that. But then I would be just as pretentious, according to the article.
