Trekkies and tea fiends alike are going to be all over the Star Trek Earl Grey Tea. This geeky brew was inspired by Captain Jean-Luc Picard from 'Star Trek: The Next Generation.' In case you didn't watch the show, Picard's favorite drink was hot Earl Grey tea.
The tea inside is normal Earl Grey, but it's the tin that begs attention. The tin has Picard's iconic drink request printed on it, making it more or less a collectible item. Star Trek has been off the air for some time, but products like this are a symbol of its enduring appeal. Another thing that makes the Star Trek Earl Grey Tea awesome is the fact that it's a functional collectible. The days of buying collectible items that can never be touched or opened appears to be on the way out.
