Tea for the Inept?

I came across this once in a teablog. Though I'm not really sure I can agree with it because of what's implied in reverse, the quote is interesting enough to ask you about your first reaction:

"Tea, though ridiculed by those who are naturally coarse in their nervous sensibilities, or are become so from wine-drinking, and are not susceptible of influence from so refined a stimulant, will always be the favourite drink of the intellectual... " - Thomas DeQuincy

Hmm. Wish I wasn't questioning the source.

All the best,
