Rufus Wainwright and 'the crystal meth of tea'

How do I love Rufus Wainwright? Let me count the ways, including this extra tidbit about his beloved tea, which he mentioned this week in a New York Times blog post about some of his favorite things:

Oh, and also Yorkshire Tea. It’s the crystal meth of tea. I want to do an ad for them where it’s me with the beautiful English countryside behind me, and I go: “Enjoy Yorkshire Tea. It’s the crystal meth of tea.”

This from a guy who concludes one of his songs with this verse:

Where ya been, Zebulon?
Let's meet up, why not tonight?
In the lane behind the schoolyard,
and we'll have some tea and ice cream

That sounds like one delicious dessert.
