The evils of tea (and the virtues of beer)
If you have ever wondered about which is better: tea or beer, this piece should put your mind at rest. It is extracted from William Cobbett's Cottage Econony, published in 1822. His reasoning is hard to challenge. Apart from the selection of specific sections, the text is otherwise unaltered. In 1822, it would seem, the short paragraph had not yet been invented.
