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: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
