I like hot tea. I was in San Diego and I found a brick-and-mortar tea joint: Teavana. I work for the Government; thus, I am not rich. Teavana was located in Fashion Valley Mall, home of Neiman Marcus, Tiffany, and Jimmy Choo. I was out of my league. Wearing jeans and a T-shirt, I was stunned by all the spiffily dressed shoppers. Even the Teavana employees' names suggested high culture: Daelynn O. ("clerk") and Topaz (salesperson). Just Topaz.
