Giant corporation seizes market established by small business. Again.

Yeah, its gonna put out of business all those mom and pop tea shops in Southern Wisconsin.

Some of my favorite memories are sitting at my favorite tea shop in midwest downtown USA, drinking their home grown Darjeeling (with a bit of Jersey cream) served in their family heirloom silver set, listening to the kitchen banter of Flo, the waitress who worked at the town tea shop for decades.

Who wouldn't want to stand up for all those small town tea shops?

there's no such thing as home-grown darjeeling in midwest USA. Fail.

Not the worst thing that could happen. Starbucks caused the current boom in little mom and pop coffee shops by creating demand for good coffee. This will only help bring more awareness to tea and expand the US market for it. If their tea is the same quality as Teavana and their customer service better, they will do quite well. It would also be nice to have more cafes that specialize in tea. I have one in my city that I like to go study at, but it would be amazing if there were more.

You can have my keurig when you pry it out of my cold dead twitching caffeine soaked fingers.
