Indeed; I think this link to how much tea is drunk aboard a simple cruise ship, over 2 weeks, shows what a massive impact tea has to economies.
If anything, tea actually helps reduce the amount of poaching in Kenya; meaning maybe tea is currently saving the elephants and rhinos in that region.
Prince William recently talked about the issues about this poaching; maybe he should have encouraged people to drink more tea.]]>
Is there a difference between the oolong teas from China vs. Taiwan? IS one prefered over the other?

In the wake of the news that Darjeeling is going to get its name back (so to speak), what do you think this means for the farms that are from that region? I'm in Chicago, where Ineeka is, and their tea is grown on the Ambootia estates in Darjeeling. I can definitely recognize a difference between their Darjeeling tea vs. (we'll just say) other brands' Darjeelings.
Overall, I think this is a really positive thing, but do you think it will make estates raise their prices as Darjeeling becomes more "exclusive"?
Any input is appreciated! Also, has anyone else tried Ineeka's Darjeeling? It's my all-time favorite...
Just thought you might be interested in this tea book project I stumbled upon at kickstarter.

I am looking to buy my girlfriend a tetsubin cast iron tea set for christmas, however, the one I feel she would like is not available in the states and would cost an arm and a leg to ship it here.
I was just wondering if anybody here knew of some secret awesome place online that has a really good selection of tetsubin cast irons that are in the states.
I still plan to discuss this with the eager employees at Teavana, but I've looked on their website, amazon, and various other sites online, but no luck.
Anybody have some insider knowledge they can drop on me??
Thanks in advance!
