We receive several tea e-newsletters. One of them yesterday carried this small, but important story on India calling for Tea to be its national drink. This is carrying coals to Newcastle. I mean, really? Does India need to be urged to do this? Shame, shame. With Assam & Darjeeling regions known the world over for one product - Tea - you would think this was already a fact. But no, the North-Eastern Tea Association of India has to actively advocate to make this a reality. The recent article in the Assam Tribune makes the case passionately - the facts are overwhelming. Come on, do it already.
