We caught a dogfish off Atlantic Beach & made kippers out of it the other day. I had sweet tea & potato tots with it. Yum!

I have been looking forward to a hot date with Lady Grey for a couple of hours. And when I finally had that hot Lady in front of me She didn't disappoint.

I like most all teas and like to switch kinds. The Republic of Tea has a great selection.

Years ago, my father-in-law (FIL) spent quite a bit of time in Merry Olde England doing work for the US Government. On one occasion, while dining at some posh joint or other, he asked for a southern (American) favorite drink of "Iced tea".

After a long pause, the waiter indicated (ever so politely) that they didn't serve that beverage. My FIL reminded them that all you had to do was brew tea and pour it over ice. The waiter, with a painful grimace on his face, checked with his manager. Eventually, my FIL got his iced tea. He said that it was about the best **** tea he's ever had in his life too.

Thank you for sharing.

I so wish that I had been there to witness it.

Returned from a nice curry with my little warspites. Am now relaxing in front of the computer, catching up on events and listening to Clubbed to Death and drinking a nice big mum of TEA. Life is good

Warm, spicy, tea. Snow outside. The German panzers are on the way into the plains of Flanders. Life is indeed good.

Time for afternoon tea.

Warm summer day and I test MWIF while sipping mint tea. Life couldn't be much better than this, unless a AI for MWIF was released.

A cup of poppy seed tea, please?

Just kidding of course. I am currently addicted to peanut butter and jelly.

I suppose warm mild can work although I can not remember ever trying it before bed time.

Late evening I rather go for herbal tea.

I have an unopened pack of Chinese green tea called "Special Gunpowder" which I'm not prepared to open.


I'm actually wasting time this morning to delay getting down to doing some unpleasant admin and, for reasons too complicated to explain here, came across this odd bit about how wild boar are hunted:


"In Nepal, farmers and poachers eliminate boars by baiting balls of wheat flour containing explosives with kerosene oil, with the animals' chewing motions triggering the devices."

Game of Thrones teas ...

Ridiculous. A Stark would only drink Yorkshire Tea.

Someone on another forum recommended PG Tips to me, and I see it mentioned here. It's awesome tea, and Target carries it. I drink a pitcher or two a week of iced PG Tips. Might try some tea from Trader Joe's someday, as I've heard it can be good and is a bit cheaper.

Had a barley tea at a Korean restaurant. I liked the food, but not the barley tea.
