The Bailout and Tea?

Im not really a political person but recent events have me wondering…. Was tea served during the weekend pow-wow to figure out how to bailout our current financial situation? (Because Im “tea-centric” I think like this and tend to bring things back to how it relates to tea.) I think a pot of Sencha to create a zen-like atmosphere as they contemplated a decision that could send the country into a major recession if not a depression might have helped. (Not really but I can dream.)

Im thinking… probably not. Im thinking… barrels of coffee were wheeled in (along with Red Bull, Gin and carry-out from Old Ebbitt Grill). Maybe… an old box of Lipton made it into the room, who knows.

Im wondering… could tea make a difference in the world? Affect our decision-making abilities by making us more relaxed, centered and just plain happy? I want to yell out: “YES!” because Im a Pollyanna Tea Girl…. watching her 401k shrink by the minute…

Anyway…. Im sipping and reading…

The Bailout and Tea?

  1. While we’ll never know for sure about what they were drinking during their decision making process, I feel strongly that it wasnt tea. 🙂 Interesting notion on Assam.. for some reason I can see them with a Keemun. 😉 Thanks for the note!

  2. What a great post! I’ve often googled “tea and celebrities” or other conversation to see who’s really drinking tea and who isn’t.

    Seriously, tea would have been a great addition to such a serious time. While relaxation is optimal, I’m thinking if they were drinking tea while congress was in session they were probably enjoying Assam – a power tea to go with their power suits.
