Is tea the key to peace in Sri Lanka?

A reporter traveling to a town in war-torn Sri Lanka found that folks there only wanted to talk about one subject: tea.

With the regional economy dominated by tea estates, locals wanted to know about global trends in tea consumption and whether demand would be picking up soon.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if both sides in the conflict there were able to rally around tea as their common cause?

These leaves bring mellow to individuals—can they mellow out an entire society?
