There’s (almost) no tea here! Each refreshment table has 7 huge urns or coffee, and one of hot water. And dozens of “tea” bags. None of which are tea. They’re “calming”, and “soothing”, and all sorts of horticultural byproducts, but NOT TEA!

This morning there were a small number of real tea bags (labeled “Awake”), but they went quickly. I’ve asked the conference staff to see if they can get the Starbucks folks who run the tables to put some real tea out.

After all, what if all but one of those “coffee” urns actually had cocoa and Postum, instead of real coffee? They’d have a riot on their hands.
