Category in TRANSITION! ($15 BILLION by 2012)

In 1990 the whole tea category in the U.S. was less than $1 BILLION.

Last year, the category grew about $1.5 BILLION ending up at about $7 BILLION ... with the lion’s share of growth going to specialty teas.

Where were those dollars captured?

What businesses are benefitting financially from these “new” consumer dollars?

Premium Tea Outlet has an ad on my site at their tea from Sri Lanka is the freshest on the market, they claim. I'm very fond of the ginger and lemon teas, although every one I've tried so far is excellent.

Just back from the Natural Food Products Expo where I had wonderful teas from Sri Lanka from Premium Tea Outlet in Reading, MA, a new importing company that has some really great products. Also went to a tasting of Numi's new Puerh teas made from leaves from ancient tea trees in China - the Mint was my favorite as well as Magnolia with a floral tone.

Right now, I'm enjoying Good Earth's caffeine free original sweet & spicy. The flavors just pop and they don't use sugar!

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
