I am in love with tea, especially green tea. I once had a dream that I was a Chinese ruler who owned a tea palace that grew every type of tea. I love Japanese green tea like Sencha, Gyokuro, Genmaicha, Matcha. I also love gunpowder. Then there's oolong too. Even herbal tea is good since it's caffeine free to drink at night. If I was rich I would buy a pound of every type of tea from Harney & Sons or Teavana or some other place that is even better.

I would offer the statement that my cardiovascular system likely consists of tea.

My beverage of choice would consist of the profferings of the Earl of Grey.

I've been a tea lover for years, and I always like it when I come across others who like the stuff, too.  Seems so many offerings in stores and other places are herbal teas, and while I'm fine with them selling it, I don't want it.  I like the black tea, preferably strong.  I'm partial to AWAKE tea by Tazo, and I'm glad it's in most of the stores around me.  It's an English Breakfast tea, and starts most of my mornings. What ones do you guys like best?  

I look forward to chatting with you all more.  For now, I'm off to start the kettle.  LOL

I just discovered Yorkshire Gold and love it. Anyone else tried this, and if so what did you think?

So nice to have a men's group on tea.  I can't live without my cup of English Breakfast in the morning.  I know a lot of people think that coffee is the best beverage for waking up but I have to say that a good cup of tea in the morning refreshes me - Well a good cup of tea any time of day really. 

Found this video by Chris Yates on making tea while fishing.  

Hope you enjoy it.

Had a nice cuppa Irish Breakfast this morning.  A nice wake-up alternative to coffee.

A MEN'S TEA! You don't know how glad I am to see this group. I'm only one of two male members in the Virginia Historical Tea Society. As much as I enjoy those wise old ladies, I often wished there were more men. Now I've found you.

I like the spread you got there, M!

Comment by Casto on March 19, 2012 at 9:23am

Hey all, glad to find a tea group on here. I reside in SW China so we have lots of tea here. I am partial to red pu'er tea and Oolong Tea. Not big on the milk and sugar unless its black tea. But hey, to each his/her own!

50 gallon water heater heats 25 gallons

Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so.  Service call couldn't find a problem.  I'm beginning to wonder if I'm crazy to expect a hot bath,  or if there's a spell in the house.  Any idea what's wrong?   I'm planning to call the installer again and if he can't fix it have him take it out...but will the next be better?  it has to be the heater, right?See More
