Pride of Port on my cup. My co-worker has once again relabeled my teas for me. So it is now listed as Pride of East Lansing. It is a running joke. The first round of labels was done when I was on travel for work a year ago. I'll have to find my scan of those ones because they were flat out hilarious. Things like Liberal Tea, Kindle Tea with ver accurate descriptions.

Good idea. I had been using Image Shack, but I got yelled at by the Mods... That's why I switched to attachments. [Mods: Cover your ears...] Maybe I'll try to sneak in one like that if it's a really worthy photo...

She just told me that she's made reservations in a nice hotel for me for three days of seacoast photography at the end of the month. She has a conference to go to, and I'd be batching it at home otherwise. Nice lady!

And I can easily tell that I shouldn't drink two glasses of Blue.

Wow! Commitment issues or just plain indecisiveness?
Congrats on your 4 months, though! May you have many, many more! Years, even!

No Stitch, very complicated but the years just got away from us for various reasons. We are high school sweethearts so we are both still relatively young (33 & 32), so we hopefully have many more decades together!

Congrats!

And I thought my hubby was slow to propose. (winks)

Smart move waiting until you were ready to marry. There is a lot of growing and changing that happens in your 20's, no need to rush if you are comfortable with how you are living.

Pretty funny. And Pride of East Lansing?! Then you must drink it with milk, surely.

Spoiler:
East Lansing is the home of Michigan State University, known to one and all Michiganders who are NOT students or alumnae of the school as "Moo U" or sometimes "Cow College" because it is the last of the Agricultural Land Grant Colleges in the state and still has an excellent Department of Agriculture and issues B.Sc in Agriculture degrees.

How about a camera and lens like this setup -- where you need to hire an assistant just to hold the lens?

A bit of a change this afternoon. A pot of Peet's "Darjeeling Fancy Organic." Not bad. (This is a blend of second flush organic Darjeelings. Characteristic Darjeeling nose, and a bit smoother liquor than some second flush Darjeelings I've had. )

Um ... what does "second flush" mean? I'm picturing a toilet, and I sure hope that's wrong!

Second flush essentially is second harvest of the season. The leaves are less tender then the first flush. Most teas are third or fourth so you pay more for first and second flush.

As ProfCrash says, it's the second picking of the season. First flush is the early spring picking and tends towards mild, even delicate, flavours and a lighter liquor. A delightful afternoon tea when you have time to sit and contemplate. Second flush is the second growth spurt, and produces a more full bodied tea with the full characteristic aroma of a Darjeeling and a rich and complex liquor. Later in the season will come harsher and less well-rounded pickings, though some properties do well with an autumn picking.

Most of what you get in the typical tea-bag "Darjeeling" is broken-leafed late season leaves. Strong, dark, and not nearly as complex or interesting as it should be. I personally find second-flush Darjeelings to be a good compromise between price and quality, especially when they come from good estates. First flush Darjeelings tend to be a bit light for my tastes much of the time, though when I'm feeling contemplative on a Saturday afternoon, they're perfectly appropriate.

India Blacks, in general, tend to be quite different from China blacks, though I often think that there's a certain similarity between a good Keemun and a good 2nd flush Darjeeling. They both have a strong nose and a well rounded flavour, though the Keemun is much earthier and less astringent.
