Earl Gray is passe. English Breakfast is old hat. Darjeeling is dated. You'll still find these traditional teas on shop shelves, in primly plain packaging. But they're not what's hot in tea these days. The teas of the moment have fruity flavors, evocative names and bold boxes designed to call attention to the product. Among the choices: Raspberry Bramble, Autumn Apple, Lemon Grove, Passionate Peach, Specially Strawberry, Island Punch, Tahitian Sunset and Sleepytime. Fruit-flavored and decaffeinated teas are now the top-selling lines of John Wagner & Sons in Ivyland, Bucks County, which has been selling teas and gourmet items at home and abroad since 1847.

Although her credits on Broadway and the big and small screen stretch all the way back to 1944 when George Cukor cast her in Gaslight, Angela Lansbury can say without fear of contradiction that she has never before played a teapot. "Never," she declared of her first venture into comic crockery - the Disney Studio's dazzling animated feature, Beauty and the Beast, which will open Friday. Lansbury set down her glass of white wine in a fashionable Westside bistro and pronounced the role of Mrs. Potts exactly her cup of tea. "I loved doing a teapot.

A harpist played glittering classical melodies during the traditional British afternoon high tea yesterday in the luxurious Barrymore Room at the Hotel Atop the Bellevue - and three dozen Philadelphia high school students who had seen such events only in the movies got right into the spirit of things. Nobody even dropped a plate, or consumed a scone (with Devonshire cream) out of the correct order of things. The tiny sandwiches came first, then the scones, then the delicate pastries atop the three-tiered trays delivered to each table, draped with a pink tablecloth.

WHAT SHOULD Philadelphia do to locate deadbeat owners of vacant houses when so many people are in need of housing? Mayoral candidate T. Milton Street said he wouldn't bother looking for missing owners. "I'd move somebody in those houses and let the owners find me," said the former state senator and onetime squatter-movement leader. "I've done it. It works. " It was a response to one question asked near the end of a mayoral candidates forum sponsored by the Philadelphia Council for Community Advancement at the Crystal Tea Room yesterday.

In 2008, the economic crisis that crashed down on Wall Street and rippled around the globe eventually washed over the impoverished Kisii region of Kenya, where Sara Holby, then 21, was volunteering for a nonprofit that provided food and medicine to HIV/AIDS patients. It swept away the organization's funding almost overnight. "When people came to the office looking for help every day, we basically had nothing to offer them," recalled Holby, who is from Upper Black Eddy, Bucks County.

UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT . Friday, Netflix. TINA FEY'S break, such as it was, is over. Sometime between the end of "30 Rock" and this week's debut, on Netflix, of her new comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Fey - or, as she's known in these parts, "Upper Darby's Tina Fey" - claims to have had "a great six months where [she and "Kimmy" co-creator Robert Carlock] just went to that office every day and made tea and had toast and then went home.

Like so many inventions before it, the BKON Craft Brewer began with a tenacious individual, a basement workshop, and a flash of inspiration. In this case, that individual was Dean Vastardis, who then worked at his family's business, Pennsauken's Lacas Coffee. The inspiration? It came from the Food Network. "I was watching Iron Chef and seeing how they sous-vide marinate proteins," he said. "It was very interesting to me how you could take something that would take hours - to marinate meats - and do it in a matter of minutes.

If Donna McCafferty's custom-branded tea company continues on its promising path to breakout star, she will have some unlikely sources of inspiration to credit. Among them: a package-design assignment when she was a student at Kutztown University more than 30 years ago, and a divorce. The assignment led to a good grade and a clever canister for tea bags, its label a cozy scene of paintbrushes resting in a teacup against a floral background. Always fond of wordplay, McCafferty named her brew Creativitea . The divorce, 16 years ago, led to a personal unraveling, a soul-testing recovery, and a connection on Match.com that led her to a new husband.

SANDRA LONG WEAVER spent roughly 30 years climbing to the top of the newspaper industry, only to be abruptly fired in 2011. Overnight, Weaver went from being one of the highest ranking people at Philadelphia Media Network, the former parent company of the Daily News , Inquirer and Philly.com, to not knowing if she would ever work again.
