All the tea in China

You can’t make this stuff up department
The Marketplace Morning Report radio program this morning included a story about product placement on the Chinese version of the Ugly Betty television sitcom. The products featured? Dove soap. Okay. And Lipton tea. Lipton tea?!?!? As a consumer product in China?!?!? What am I missing?

Meanwhile, there's me, an American watching the U.S. version of Ugly Betty and sipping Chinese green teas and white teas that I've made from imported whole tea leaves. But does the U.S. version of the show feature imported Chinese tea? No.
