"Tea" also works, too!
After all, though I drink #tea every now and then, I do like tea! 🍵

A question to @tea lovers. Among established #tea cultures of the world, there is a not-that-famous (at least for me) Turkish tea culture. In Turkey, people regularly drink #redTea, they even have a special dish for it. The taste of tea is piercing, moving further from Indian acerbity and having no sign of Chinese sweetness.
The tea I met is usually tiny cut pieces, which in general is treated as not of a high quality. Is there a whole leaf Turkish tea?
Barney and Sons #Tea is made in Milltown New York and they do a damn fine job. Today I’m drinking Black Cask Bourbon tea, and it’s wonderful. (No alcohol, 🙂 says it contains natural bourbon flavor.)
Und pünktlich zum ersten des Monats kommt der #TeedesMonats raus. Diese Mal ist ein #Oolong der Sorte GABA. Was es damit auf sich hat und warum dieser Tee für ständig hochtourig laufende Menschen besonders empfehlenswert ist, erfährst du hier:
As much as I would like Eddie Vedder’s death certificate to say he died of old age, the death certificates of other Seattle front men and grunge front men did not. All the biggest acts I’m aware of that were from Seattle or were grunge related no longer have a lead singer, excepting Pearl Jam.
Starting with the grunge bands, Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots died of an accidental drug overdose. Layne Staley of Alice in Chains died of a heroin and cocaine mix. The other deaths are a bit more complex. With the drug part of the equation being a bit less obvious.
Chris Cornell of Soundgarden officially died of hanging. He had 4 times a normal dosage of Ativan in his system. 6 times the normal dosage can have the side effect of suicidal thoughts. It is possible that Chris Cornell had the thoughts on a slightly lower dose than is considered normal. His death, too, could be tied to drugs.
Kurt Cobain’s death has inspired many conspiracy theories. There’s no way I can get to them all, here. The Nirvana front man likely shot himself while on morphine, valium and a large dose of heroin. Just know that drugs were involved. And a few weeks before this he had been hospitalized for taking 50 painkillers that some believe was an earlier suicide attempt. Drugs were definitely involved.
Another huge Seattle singer was Jimi Hendrix. It is believed he died after taking 18 times the recommended dosage of sleeping pills and aspirated his own vomit and died of asphyxia. However the coroner declared an open verdict due to a lack of evidence.
Grunge, Seattle and Drugs seem to mix with lethal consequences for lead singers. Eddie Vedder, as the last one standing, I hope his friends family, Pearl Jam and bodyguards take note.
If I were Vedder’s body guard I would keep him away from second hand smoke. Eddie is supposed to have stayed away from smoking his whole life, so I’d be damned if second hand smoke were to take him out now. Anyone who started smoking around him would get the smoke slapped off his face and I would steer Eddie away from any smoking area.
Every time I saw Vedder with a coffee in his hands, I’d slap it to the ground and say “Say no to drugs, Mr. Vedder, sir!” Hopefully his foot wasn’t burned. I’d also do the same if he had an energy drink, tea, or cola in his hand.
And if I were to hear him say, “There’s nothing like a beer on a hot day,” I’d give him my angry glare and say, “There’s nothing like air conditioning on a hot day.” Then I would steer him inside to air conditioning and if that also protected him from skin cancer, well then so be it.
Eddie Vedder, you’ve been the exception to the rule so far. Let’s keep going with that.

Tea No 5 in the Summer 2023 Blind Tasting Club was a (literally) museum quality Fujian Red Tea, a clear favorite among most of the tasters and a proud get by one of proprietors of Ho Yum Tea.
Have decided to tough out the restocking of tea until Monday. The ex-lodger (never thought I'd ever be able to say that) left a small stock of her chosen tea behind so will stomach that for the weekend (I may regret this) and limit (whaaaa?) my remaining two bags of assam (tea bags that is) to one per day until then. Oh the humanity.

In some parts of the World, cops shout at people to put down guns or other weapons - in #Cheshire (NW #England) they shout at the lorry driver to put down his cup of #tea (he got a £100 fine and 3 points on his licence for unsafe driving - for one thing if he had to brake sharply he risks hot tea being yeeted into his lap, and the subsequent chance of a bad collision)

It was no real surprise that tea no 4 from the summer 2023 Ho Yum Blind Tasting Club was a Yunnan Sun Dried Black Tea. What was surprising was what a fine example of that type of tea it is.
Mugi went to the supermarket with me yesterday and helped me pick out some new teas to try. This is a rose green tea. I have had some wonderful rose tea served to me, but have yet to find a brand I like.
The underlying sencha of this one isn't up to snuff.
A first flush Avongrove Darjeeling that exhibits fantastic fragrance character. I don't normally find Indian teas show well brewed gongfu style, but this one does. My favorite tea of the summer 2023 Ho Yum Tea Blind Tasting Club.
Finally back in my happy place: Yé Yint, the oldest and most popular Burmese tea shop in Singapore. Burmese milk tea: S$1.50 (a bit over US$1). Food is also great here, but there is no English menu! (Ladies speak Burmese, English, Mandarin)
I mention this spot, and also provide a recipe, in my newsletter post about tea: https://buttondown.email/skinnylatte/archive/three-cups-of-tea/
You know you're a #tea person when you set a 3-minute steep timer and leave the kitchen, only to realize that you just made instant hot cocoa.
I'd like more local shops to take their tea more seriously and not have such a terrible bottom-tier tea selection when compared to their coffee, wine or other luxury goods.
One day we shall have tea in Boston again!

Instant sweetened Masala chai tea: Surprisingly not as completely godawful as it sounds.
@APBBlue I’m not a doctor or a scientist, but I read articles written by them. And I’m dubious about the idea that caffeine is responsible for GERD.
See here, for example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6559035/
The “Ya Shi Xiang” #tea. It’s Guangdong #oolong which I didn’t get that much. And the thing was not with the tea, but with my knowledge about it. If I knew a story behind (you can find a little note on @babelcarp: http://babelcarp.org/babelcarp/babelcarp.cgi?phrase=Ya+Shi+Xiang&define=1), I would be much more attentive.
So this toot will be a question. What sources of knowledge do you use to gain knowledge about the teas you drink?
@lydiaschoch I drink tea (instead of coffee) 4 mornings a week, mostly tea from Murchie's and just this morning was looking at their Publisher's Blend: https://www.murchies.com/product/publishers-blend-loose-tea/
I haven't tried that, but some of my favorites: Baker Street Blend, Queen Victoria, Library Blend, Editors' Blend, Hatley Castle. No. 10 Blend.
Unexpected delivery, a few days early. Restock of our favourite #tea supplies.
An order usually seems enough for about a year, though I may have gone a bit further this time.
If tea harvests fall and the price goes up a lot we may need to revert to using teapots rather than teabags.
I've just been told that dunking one's biscuit (cookie) in a cup of tea/coffee is considered common as muck in the #uk 😂
I'm now tackling my shortbread like a TASTY FOE drowning it in my tea and munching on its DELICIOUS SOGGY BITS with IMMENSE SATISFACTION
I AM the COMMONER COOKIE CONQUERER (Yay!)

Vaikka joudunkin taistelemaan monen eri asian kanssa, jotta oikeuteni toteutuisi, niin yritän aina löytää niitä mukaviakin asioita.
Tykkään pelata ja juoda hyvää teetä ja käydä syömässä kaupungilla puolisoni kanssa. Nämä pienet asiat auttavat jaksamaan ja niistä on myös tärkeää pitää kiinni ettei iske totaalinen henkinen romahdus.
Elämä potkii, mutta mä oon jo niin kovatasoinen ninja et osaan väistää niitä potkuja ja joskus potkaisen kovaa takaisin 🦵
It has been a long day I will end with a nice cup of tea

So, I was wondering why don’t I seem to have a naked neighbor? I just finished my nude #yoga in my living room this morning with the bright sun warming my skin, and this is what I’m pondering as I relax with my pot of freshly brewed #tea (#Darjeeling) before getting dressed for the busy day ahead. I feel #cheated.
