We've spoken about our love of coffee a couple of times in recent weeks. And quite right too. It is the lifeblood of this operation. (OK, one of them…)

But there was a little voice that piped up the last time. It was only a whisper at first. But when it realised that nobody was listening, it turned into quite an insistent, authoritative shout.

"What about tea? I like tea. Lots of people like tea!"

There was a silence like never before in our world. Then, oh, how we laughed.

But it appears our lone lover of the loose leaf is a champion for this almost forgotten cause.

People like tea. Weird

But as it's the Fourth of July, the anniversary of the day when America stopped drinking tea, perhaps we should fly the flag.

At wearetea.com you can get your hands on some of the best tea around, all from the comfort of your own home.

So there. Balance restored.
