Boy, tea’s been in the news! The October 2nd edition of the Wall Street Journal had an article about puer on the front page (below the fold, of course, but still…front page?). It talks about how newly-wealthy Chinese investors have been looking for things to invest in and have caused the price of puer to skyrocket, but now there are fears of a collapse.
Then, today, another article about tea appeared in US News & World Report. This one was about research into the amino acid theanine and how it helps concentration (with speculation that it might help with attention deficit disorder, or ADD). They also had a link to another article about green tea and possible connections with healthier skin.
