When I worked in the Now-Defunct Tea Store, I once had a customer ask about Canadian tea ...

I know I am in southern Ontario, dear customer, but it is still NOWHERE near the climate that tea needs.
But camellia, the tea bush is able t be grown in much of the US .... my grandmother even had a couple in her decorative formal garden. DOn't think she ever tried making tea leaves, but the process is not over difficult for green tea it is simply drying it, black tea takes some controlled fermentation.

Yes, we have no bananas.
But the song already has a truck, how about something with Motherhood OR that country and western thing??? with wailing fiddles and a killer banjo part and the LA Memorial Choir

Needs to be updated to todays pop sensibilities with some samples... accordions, bagpipes, tubas and a dozen of the hottest rappers...

I'm off today, but a CW just texted me this:

A customer wanted to know if we had local bananas.

...now I know it's been a bit tropical climate-wise as of late, but really?
Tropical climate, or Iceland

Whereabouts in the U.S. did your grandmother live?

It would probably be possible to grow the plants in southern Ontario ... especially at the Windsor-Detroit border ... but I don't know if it would be possible to make a living at it.

Places like London, ON, are known to be in the "snow belt" ... not sure how that would work with the plants.
