Hi, orlok. I might have stopped by once or twice before. What's in my cup is usually pretty boring, since it's almost always "tea."
Don't worry about that. All I usually say is black coffee or Rooibos. And someone else (who can't be named ) just has iced water or Coke Zero to offer.

In my cup? Black coffee.

Whaaat? You can't just say tea! Where are the temperature, the brewing time, the kind of cup, the color of leaves?
See? I don't even know the rules.

So, here's the details. I start my day with four 16 ounce stoneware mugs of tea. The first two are almost always generic black tea in tea bags, just to wake me up and get me started. I usually have time to get more creative with my second and third mugs. I have an Asian market nearby and I buy loose black or oolong tea. Right now I'm almost done with a small cannister of Golden Dragon brand oolong tea.

I brew it with boiling water and drink it hot, with honey -- preferably dark buckwheat honey.

The stoneware mugs are souvenirs of a long-ago visit to Colonial Williamsburg, in Virginia.

As far as peripheral issues go, I have my usual "holiday season sinus infection." This year's is rougher than most -- I'm on my third different antibiotic, but this one might do it!

My best to Lucas! My son was one of those rare babies who never got sick. I don't think he had a noticeable cold until he was two. My daughter, on the other hand, could muster up an impressive fever at the drop of a hat.

What would you do if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me.
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
And I'll try not to sing out of key.
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends,
Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends,
Mmm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.

Joe Cocker at Woodstock... They made history together.

Good morning, everyone! The 4th Thursday in a month that has five. There is something very important in that, but I'm not sure what it is... I just 'feel' it. But it's starting off with a great big mug (see attachment below. Although the mug says 'November,' my birthday is in December. The shop only carried November mugs. I'm not fussy. ) of Taylors of Harrogate's "Yorkshire" tea, which is the perfect way to start the day. It's strong enough to remove paint from a battleship. It is definitely 'wake up' stuff! Add to it some rice, Kalamata olives and miso soup, and I'll be ready for the 10k walk we have planned for this morning. I need to be back before noon to meet with my Senior Citizen's conversation group, but that shouldn't be a problem if we walk fast!

Actually, I prefer the term 'gadfly' to 'Royal Pain,' but there are those who probably disagree.

Just as an experiment, try letting the water cool for about 7-8 minutes before you brew the oolong. (Boiling for the black tea is OK) You may (or may not) prefer the flavor with the lightly cooler water.

One more mug of tea, then it's off to see the Wizard!

Just curious... isn't iced water almost the same as normal water here in the winter?

Tea, glorious tea! This time it's my fav, the unbranded Keemun! I've got to make some tea bags with it so I can bring them along this weekend. I'm just about out of most of my home-made bags.

Bancha in one cup, oatmeal in the other.

Already not looking forward to the commute home. There is a dusting of snow, not even an inch, and it is not going to melt. What does that mean? People with no experience driving in the snow tailgating (I am talking about the idiot who was doing that to me as I was coming into a turn that was snowy. Thank god I didn't have to brake) The freeways are already filled with accidents and rush hour has not even really begun. The smaller roads will not be treated so my last mile drive home will be on ice because the snow is not going to melt.

uggghhh Thank god I have a 6 mile commute and it is all on streets, no freeways.
