Not liking coffee is pretty much unpatriotic behavior in this country. But hey, can you blame people for not liking the bitter and dehydrating taste? If anti-coffee people (and/or Brits) need their caffeine fix, they turn to tea.


And what's great about tea — or at least what I think is great about tea — is that tea sets make the whole process so easy! So tasty! So fancy! See, if you make your own coffee, you either need ten million different gadgets to make sure you perfectly extract the brightness out of every freshly grounded bean from Ethiopia and Colombia while maintaining the perfect Kelvin temperature using the circa-1700 Native American technique of rain dancing to score a good cup or buy an inelegant Mr. Coffee that spits out coffee flavored piss water. Ew to both.

With tea, all you need is a snazzy tea set like the Withmilk, which combines a milk jug, four cups and a bowl into one stackable retro milk bottle-like shape. Plop a tea bag inside the cups when you host the good kind of Tea Party and enjoy the even if it's crappy tea it's still good for the soul drink that coffee isn't. $40 [Doiy Design via Book of Joe]


My issue with tea has never been how it looks. It is the fact that good coffee beans can be had for $5-$10 a pound while good tea costs far, far more.

So, anyone know of good cheap tea?
