A Mere Drink in Britain

"Tea is much more than a mere drink in Britain. It is a solace, a mystique,an art, a way of life, almost a religion. It is more deeply traditional than the roast beef of old England....This khaki-colored concoction, brewedthrough an accident of history from an exotic plant grown thousands of milesfrom fog, cricket and left-handed driving, has become the life-blood of the nation."

- Cecil Porter of Gemini News Service
