September Link Roundup

01Oct07

We didn’t write a whole lot in September (or August for that matter), but we did read quite a bit. Here are some of our favorites:

1. Chow put together an interesting series of video clips with James Norwood Pratt, on topics ranging from tea at Peets vs. Starbucks (Peets gets a thumbs up), the issue of tea bags and more.

2. Guess what’s growing in Washington? Heads up Charleston, you’ve got competition!

3. ABC NewsThe Associated Press does an excellent feature on the problems facing the Indian tea industry. We’re glad the “mainstream” media continues to expand their coverage of tea (check out this latest set of NBC news clips ). This is especially important now — because while tea is enjoying a growth spurt in the US — attention should, and increasingly, is, being directed to the several challenges facing producing countries.

4. Like Darjeeling, south India’s Nilgiri teas are going to be given GI (Geographical Indication) status. A positive development in the marketing of Indian tea. In case you were wondering what that means:

GI is a name or sign used on goods to indicate and certify that
these originate from a specific geographical origin and possess certain
characteristics or reputation which is essentially attributable to the said
geographical origin.[via]

5. And my personal favorite: this rather interesting menu from Beijing.

Enjoy!

ps. We got some props from the Peoria Journal Star.
