Spilling the Tea
by Lucy Leaf, Advice Columnist

My name is Lucy Leaf. As I’m sure you all know, my sister, Betsy Bean, had a wildly successful advice column for a coffee company. However, I noticed one significant problem. Her column is all about coffee (and probably way too much focus on Irish cream).

Now, I have no problems with coffee, mind you. But there is no cup of coffee that can compare to a cup of tea, which is why it’s the most popular beverage in the world, after water, of course. Not surprising, considering how a good, strong brew can turn anyone’s day around and even has health benefits. However, I am not here to change you all into tea lovers. I just want to share what’s been brewing in the back of my head. It’s been “oolong” time since I’ve written for an audience, and of course, no one can “matcha” Betsy’s way with words, but I’m going to give it a try and hopefully add some varie-tea to this column. So sit back, grab a cup of your favorite tea, and let’s get started!
