and the award goes to...Think you’ve got a passion for tea that is better than the rest? You may be able to make some money from it!

The US Tea Association has created a competition for students who have a supreme love of tea and want to spread the word. The competition, called the “Calm-A-Sutra” of Tea, encourages those students to send in a video explaining why they think tea is so great. The winner will get $20,000. Just for loving tea and showing it! Too bad blogs don’t count!!

The competition is getting hot – submit your video before August 6, 2008 to have a fighting chance.

For those who are curious, here is last year’s winner. Personally, I think this one should’ve won, though.
