The Teacup Tango

What's a girl to do when she wants to go back to school and needs to find money to do so? Once again, as in most things in life, she turns to her teapot for the answer.

Or at least this is what Elizabeth Houston and her husband did in their creative search for financial aid scholarships -- they entered the 3rd Annual Calm-a-Sutra Scholarship.

Houston and her husband were not tea drinkers, albeit with all the education they gave themselves they have recently delved into the marvelous mad world of tea. Their 2 videos also marks their video making debut.

The Calm-a-Sutra Scholarship asks students to produce & upload a 1-2minute video describing the health benefits of tea and doing so with the utmost of creativity. Entries are judged on their health-related messages, creativity, individuality and popularity (which is influenced on the number of hits each entry receives on YouTube).

The winner will be announced September 29th! So stay tuned.

Meanwhile I would like to share this one entitled:
The Teacup Tango.

I didn't know these two previously weren't tea drinkers. That explains a lot. It seems studying the virtues of tea converted them to the faith. True salvation. --Teaternity
