Japan's bring-your-own-thermos tea shops

As a fresh and eco-friendly alternative to bottled tea, tea shops in Japan are beginning to offer freshly brewed green tea to customers who bring in their own thermos.

Not only do you get fresh tea—as opposed to tea that's been sitting in a plastic bottle since who-knows-when—but you spare the earth the ecological expense of producing plastic bottles and transporting them over hundreds or even thousands of miles.

It is yet another reason, Grasshopper, for you to brew your own tea instead of letting someone else do it for you.

"When you can snatch the cold-brewed green tea pouch from my hand, it will be time for you to leave, Grasshopper."
