Bleeding Shark Tea Bags 

This is the kind of thing that would only be made in Japan — a Japanese seafood company is developing tea bags in the shape of great white sharks which bleed as they're brewed. Why a shark? And why is a seafood company making tea bags? Who knows. If for some reason you want to learn more, check out the article here.

14 Shades of Tea.

No not a top selling book exploring the sexual depths of tea (not yet, at least). Apparently theres a lot on the line when it comes to brewing the perfect cup of tea —  Rich Cooper breaks down different shades of tea to determine what it says about your character, lifestyle and ultimately what you contributes to society. Have a look.

Toxic Tea.

A nasty story out of America where a woman received chemical burns to her oesophagus after drinking tea tainted with a cleaning product used to remove grease from deep fryers. Read more here.

What Could Have Been.

The Guardian has an interesting story about Suad Fadul, a 70 year old woman from Darfur who once could've been a princess. Instead she now sells tea on the streets of Khartoum’s poorest neighbourhoods. Read the story.
