Splash! Sip! Tea Isn't Just for Grandmas Anymore!

So, I enjoy comic books. And there's sort of a running joke in the comic book community about how every six months or so a newspaper will write an article called "Bang! Pow! Comics Aren't Just for Kids Anymore!" Now, since the grim-and-gritty era of superhero comics is generally accepted to have begun in 1986 (with Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and Alan Moore's Watchmen), this really should not count as news.

That's kind of how I felt when I saw this article on the popularity of tea.

Tea, trendy? Aaram Millones, owner of the Earth and Tea Café on Main Street, thinks so.

"They say tea is the new wine," he said.

It’s hard to argue with his claim about your grandma’s favorite beverage: In the past 18 months, Harrisonburg has gotten two tea shops within a block of each other.

Tea is gaining popularity? Stop the presses!
