The problem is, it isn't that easy. As for tea, it isn't that big of a deal. Although, when you take the time to analyze what you are drinking, the differences between a proper cup of tea like the one I brewed above, and a hastily made cup of tea using whatever the store has on sale, is a completely different experience. Further, it is a richer experience when you take the time to make an excellent cup of tea, and see how much more complex it is than what you have been drinking all along. Still, at the end of the day there are more important things than tea.
Unfortunately, unlike a relatively unimportant thing like a cup of tea, this idea of the easiest conclusion always being the right one is much more damaging in some other contexts. Think of the things people believe about others based on a rumor, a second or third hand account or just one side of the story. What are the consequences of individuals, places, entire continents being described year after year by one perspective only?
Below is a video about just that. Chimamanda Adichie is from Nigeria, but has also lived in the West. Often, when she encounters people, many of them well meaning, they have only heard one side of the story of Africa. The story of poverty, wars, disease against a backdrop of beautiful landscapes and wildlife. Adichie's experience in a middle class Nigerian family was not this story. However, due to the power of believing the easier and most prominent story about Africa, many people find it difficult to conceptualize an African who writes and speaks English, grew up in home with professional parents and in a home with housekeepers. In her Ted Talk she tells her story in her own words, and explains the importance of hearing from a variety of sources to get the full story about anything.
Tea is not "just tea", and our stories are more complicated than one telling can do justice.
