A bias on serving coffee vs tea in restaurants

Why it is so hard to find a restaurant that serves tea in style? I want my tea served with a porcelain teapot or an iron cast model. It seems that most restaurants skipped the memo about the current tea popularity.

    The coffee bias has been around in the US as far back as I can remember. The question is a good one. Is coffee more popular because it was here first or because of suggestive selling? Like the chicken or the egg?

    The bias also exists in asian restaurants. But for these, the balance tips on the side of thea.

    How can we educate restaurants to not just add hot water to an aleady used tea bag if we want more than one cup? It would be like asking a coffee drinker to leave 1/2 inch of coffee in their cup and adding hot water. I have talked to some restaurant managers and they just don’t get it. They think because the box says it’s a two cup tea bag that it should be okay. They are obviously not tea drinkers, but they won’t listen to someone who is.
