Tea Lust

music: Clocks - Coldplay, Rhythms del Mundo Cuba

While passing through the neighborhood of Darkovercon (which I did not have a chance to visit - I just sat outside of the hotel for 90 seconds while waiting for someone to join us in the van), I was introduced to:

http://www.baltcoffee.com/catalog/


Coffee lovers may also find something of interest therein, but I was pleasantly surprised to walk into a store which devoted two of its walls to products derived from camellia sinensis, as well as the usual smattering of herbal infusions which are NOT tea (bah and humbug to people who think they are).

Now I know where to find new and interesting decaffeinated teas, including a Darjeeling blend which I will have to acquire and taste.


Those who do not drink tea and cannot understand what I'm on about may, as the man said, simply go to hell.

Argh! A tea place minutes from the hotel I was at all weekend and I didn't know? Minions will pay for this tragic oversight...

Hate to break it to you, but caffeine is bad for you anyway.

Not just "Ooh, you should eat/drink/fart healthy!" bad; caffeine acts like a vasoconstrictor, and your vasos don't need no steenkin' constricting.

Kind of takes the jam out of the jelly roll, doesn't it?

On the other hand, tea is a diuretic, which is a Good Thing. It would take a doctor to sort it all out, and I think I'll ask her when I see her in January.

I would hesitate to comment on the Earl's relative hotness. Perhaps I can send you a picture and you can judge for yourself... :-)
