Patti Scialfa’s Tea in Life and Art

Patti Scialfa may be best known as the wife of musician Bruce Springsteen and a player in the E Street Band, but she also happens to be an artist in her own right … and a tea lover, to boot!

We first learned of Scialfa’s association with tea after the release of her 2004 recording “23rd Street Lullaby.” Featured in the album is a song of the same name – which was penned by Scialfa and received four-star reviews in Rolling Stone magazine – that opens with a sultry reference to Jasmine tea (view lyrics here.) But, surprisingly, her tea preferences seem to lean in different directions. According to a Smoking Gun write-up, Patti’s backstage digs are furnished “with soy milk, green tea, various protein and energy supplements,” while a Fox News interview exposes her as a serious musician and Earl Grey lover.

Ashley Judd Talks Tea

Actress Ashley Judd has been known to sip both jasmine and nettle tea, but that small fact doesn’t quite do justice to explaining her relationship with the beverage. The movie star with the looks of a model and a portfolio of a pro (she has been nominated for two Golden Globes and one Emmy Award), has been as outspoken about her tea as she has been about her early life with mother Naomi and sister Wynonna Judd of country music fame.

For instance, tea is a morning indulgence and she guiltily notes that “Every morning, I put down all my annoyances on paper so I don’t take them out on people later in the day. I would be completely embarrassed if anyone ever read them. It’s like, ‘my tea is the wrong temperature, and I don’t want to get up.’

Tea is also part of her identity as a southern gal and she’s proud to say that “… us Kentucky girls, we have fire and ice in our blood. We can ride horses, be a debutante, throw left hooks, and drink with the boys, all the while making sweet tea, darlin’.”
