Tea & Pop Culture

Lately I’ve been noticing media showcasing tea. As some of you may know, when I’m not making a cup of tea I’m often watching one of my favourite shows – a TV (and tea) junkie at heart.

Last night I was watching NCIS: LA, a great new series. The opening scene featured tea! Chrysanthemum loose leaf tea was being made, while a “regular” tea bag was also being made by a separate character. A debate occurred where tea bags were said to make the tea taste like paper. Wolfberries (aka goji berries) were then added to the chrysanthemum tea.

References to the calming effects of tea, and the benefits to the cardiovascular system were also made. At the end, the character using the tea bag makes the switch to loose leaf, admitting he was tasting the paper!

Just something fun I thought I would share 🙂
