Tea with Kevin Rose: Masala Chai, Samovar Breakfast Blend, Wuyi Oolong

Fresh baked breakfast scones and strong black tea go great together, and Kevin and I enjoy them as we  chat about how he got started with social media site Digg.com. He’s not running Digg any longer, but he’s still going strong in his love for tea, and, well on his way with his newest tech startup.
