Earthian Art and TV

Report from the Human Studies Committee

Of course we watch Earthian TV. We’ve been watching for a long and highly amusing time.

And let me just say; you guys are incredible! In the last 50 years, you’ve gone from manual typewriters and slide rules (slide rules!) to a supercomputer in your pocket.

Just. Amazing. A supercomputer that would fill a room 30 years ago, a supercomputer more powerful than the one NASA used to land on your moon. Amazing.

And then. From black and white movies to full color, three dimensional six channel sound IMAX spectaculars. We absolutely love Hollywood. And Bollywood!

“What a planet!” Oh yeah, that’s a quote from your Kurt Vonnegut, one of our favorites. Yes, we love your writers too. And actors. Directors and cinematographers, videographers. Musicians !! Dancers! Painters and sculpters! We’re in LOVE. Earth has SO much art.

We do have a special place in our horks for American TV though. So fun and revealing and trashy. Captain Kirk! Ensign Uhuru! And of course our favorite, Mr. Spock.

Mission Control

This is Mission Control, the spacious nerve center of Teaship Cosmos. From here, we coordinate all the activities of our exploration TEAms and direct the sourcing of exotic tea and teaware for our shoppe, all the while, keeping the ship on course and the entire venture on mission:

Our mission at Tea Cosmos is to explore all that is fun and interesting about tea on planet earth.
It’s an anthropological exploration of this wild phenomenon of “tea drinking” that has been extremely popular on this planet, apparently for about as long as humans have been able to boil water. So, on a mission from planet uh, well who cares? We’re here now, from very, very far away.

Welcome! This is your captain speaking, from Mission Control.

You’ll find all the latest news and entertaining tidbits on the Captain’s Blog. And you’ll find lots of interesting (to us, anyway) reports from our exploration teams.

The Week Magazine discovers Cooking With Tea

There’s something about tea that just feels fancy. Perhaps it’s due to ceremony, or history, or etiquette, or those adorably tiny sandwiches served alongside. Or maybe it’s about ritual. The whistle of the kettle, the dunking of the tea bag (or, if you’re really fancy, this), the addition of lemon or sugar or milk. In any case, it’s certain that tea has a certain power — a certain class — that it brings to the table.

Whether you like your tea sweet, iced or blooming, one thing’s for sure: No tea time is complete without some sustenance. Sure, you can go the route of scones and clotted cream, if you want to emulate the Queen herself. (And every once in a while, who doesn’t?) But what about this revolutionary idea: Serve your tea with more tea.

Because while a lot of tea’s appeal comes from holding the warm mug against your palm and sipping slowly, it’s also worth celebrating this famous beverage’s complex and sophisticated flavors in their own right. Let your tea out of the bag with these aromatic dishes, and make tea time anytime.
