  1. Interesting and kind of disturbing. I haven't had time to follow the links but the material presented in the video was a bit neat. Ironically I watched it while I enjoyed my morning cup of tea.

    I'm not your average Appalachian hillbilly as tea is still my number one beverage. I drink it hot in the morning and iced in the afternoon. I only use loose teas instead of the floor scrapings they put in tea bags and I buy it mail order in 5# or more quantities.

    I have seen and heard of the Civil Flag but don't know much about it--I'll have to look more into it.

  2. Surprisingly enough,the British drink a lot of coffee these days. According to the CBI:

    The UK is the fifth largest coffee consumer in the EU, accounting for 8.3% of total EU coffee consumption in 2009. UK coffee consumption amounted to 193 thousand tonnes in 2009. Consumption increased by 4.7% annually on average over the period 2005-2009 (ICO, 2010). However, per capita consumption is quite low compared to other EU countries, though it is stable, amounting to approximately 3 kg (EFC, 2008).
