So, someone sent me an email from my Word of Wisdom Commentary site. Someone told her that Brigham Young implemented the tea prohibition because too many woman were having tea time and thus not getting as mch housework done. The claimant also said this was found in Discourses of Brigham Young.
Welll, I couldn?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t find any such statment in the book, but I did come across something interesting.
?¢‚Ç¨?ìIt is difficult to find anything more healthy to drink than good cold water, such as flows down to us from springs and snows of our mountains. This is the beverage we should drink. It should be our drink at all times.?¢‚Ç¨¬ù (Brigham Young, Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 290)
There you have it straight from the mouth of a prophet. Water is the Mormon drink.
