Switching now to faux San Pellegrino. Every glass of this I drink, I'm chuffed that Nestle isn't getting a DIME, and neither is SodaStream, bar the initial device cost which is trivial.

Full Disclosure: Yes, I did have some initial set-up costs:
  • 2 -- 24oz food-grade 'paintball' tanks
  • 1 -- Machined brass adapter
All three of these as a package from SodaMod for ~$100USD

Ongoing usage costs:
  • Every 3-4 weeks, I have to refill one of the CO2 tanks at the local sporting goods store -- cost $9 CDN.
  • Once a year or so, I need another bag of Burton Water Salts to adjust my water salt composition to that of San Pellegrino. ~$9 USD with free Prime shipping

That sounds promising, Difflugia. I've been thinking of trying one of the ginseng Oolongs, but haven't ordered any yet.

Meanwhile, a tea day today, drinking Murchie's Balmoral Blend.

My favorite is Ten Ren's King's Tea series. The tea is high quality Taiwanese oolong and the ginseng is subtle. I usually buy the cheaper 103, but occasionally spring for a small can of the 403.

I'm pretty sure that the Ten Fu I'm drinking now is a mainland knockoff of the Ten Ren. The flavor is almost spot-on for the 103, but it's almost half the price. When they're side-by-side, the Ten Fu tastes less "fruity" and has a bit more ginseng, but I'd have a hard time identifying a single cup.

I've got a third one that is different; instead of being regular, rolled-up tea leaves, it looks like this. I bought it in an Asian store in one of the cardboard cans, but I don't remember the brand. It tastes like a strong green tea with a heavy dose of ginseng and licorice. I like it, but it's definitely not what I was expecting.

Thanks. I'll give Ten Ren a try. Next time one of us is going to be down south.

Second tea of the day.

We're having some updating done to the bathrooms and some rooms painted. The contractors start their day much earlier than I usually do. I need to adjust my tea intake accordingly.

Well, hate to go against all this lovely tea, but I'm going to have to start the day with coffee -- Peet's Major Dickason's Blend to be specific. Going to be a hot one today, and worse the rest of the week. But getting a coffee start with lots of faux San Pellegrino to follow should allow me to survive it.
