Tea & Coffee Asia news story.

I found this article in TEA AND COFFEE ASIA magazine. . .

Mourners empty reservoir. July 08
In a scenario any Irish novelist might have dreamt up, tea-drinking mourners at three separate wake houses in a Donegal town recently drained the local reservoir dry.According to Donegal County Councilor, Tony McDaid, council staff couldn't work out how the reservoir serving the St. Johnston area had suddenly run out of supply. He said it later emerged the three wakes in the locality had caused the problems."There were three large wakes at the same time," he said. "With people making so much tea over the weekend, they actually emptied the reservoir."

Ireland does drink more tea per capita than any other country in the world so I really want to believe it.

Breakfast in the willow tea rooms, Glasgow. Not a bad way to start the day.

Today i had the pleasure of meeting the team who run the Willow tea rooms. A delightful team of ladies with a real passion for the history of the tea rooms and the tea itself. I love meeting people who have such knowledge for the product. One of the UK's most famous tea rooms designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1904 The Willow remains open today to welcome visitors keen to experience the splendour of a bygone era and take tea just as they did in the same rooms and interiors 100 years ago. The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society Site.
Do not miss this if you're in Glasgow & appreciate a bit of Mackintosh design.
