Yeah, too many of my family are gingerific to be into that. I like exotic. The less someone looks like me while still being very much human, the better.

Tho morning I'm trying my first Pu Erh tea. It's some brand called Kruidvat from the European bunch my wife won.

It smells *awful*!

Tastes like strong black tea. Not bad, but nothing exceptional. Somewhat more smooth for a tea so dark. I'd drink it again, but man, that smell is terrible. It's like someone dropped a deuce in a tea kettle!

Steam. Tea. Eh, I see what you did there!

Perfekt brand rooobos with mango and peach. Disappointing, like a few others I've tried and haven't bothered sharing out of this bunch.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Indeed.

Finally got some more Lapsang Suchong. Worth the wait.

I'd like to try other brands besides Twining sthough, see if there's a higher quality version that may be better. The only other brand I've been able to find is the Baltimore Coffee and Tea house brand, and the people that work there say it's not as good.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The one I saw was in an independent tea house in Saint Augustine. Can't remember the name, but the prices and quality were comparable to Teavana, which now that I think about might be another good place to find it.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Could be. The nearest one I know of is in the Columbia Mall though, and it's a PITA to get there.

Did you try using a Tortilla instead.

Also, Pan linked a pretty expansive online store early in this thread.

I got some of this for Christmas, which was nice. Mine didn't smell as 'back to nature' as TGTG's did, but your pu-erh may vary, of course.

Wait a minute!

My brother got my wife that last year, my wife is the hottest wife in my family (by a country mile!).

Note to self: keep an eye on brother, and maybe give him a wedgie.

Here is a wonderful thing to discuss over tea...

If knowledge is power...and power corrupts....does that mean knowledge corrupts?

I think the idea that power corrupts is a misunderstanding. Power, like money, and to the same extent, knowledge, simply magnifies whatever you are at your core. If a good man gets more money, power, or knowledge, he uses it for good. If an evil man, the same, but the inverse.

To anyone who thinks they saw someone get money, or power or whatever, and that "they changed", well...no, they didn't. They just had to act a certain way out of necessity because they couldn't afford to be who they really were beneath the surface.

So everyone is a good person or a dick and social status, station, and/or resources allow you to amplify your good or dickisness? There is no changing of a person whatsoever?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Through internal effort, not outside sources. People who blame outside factors for their faults after adulthood are simply shirking their own responsibility. There comes a time where you can no longer blame the world around you for who you are and realize that no, it's not your parents fault or society's fault you are who you are. The outside world can inspire you to change, but only you, yourself, can decide and make it happen, whether for good or evil.

On another note.... This is the handle I use outside of Paizo. Kinda decided to subtly change over here.

Hey, I liked Date Night. Evan Almighty was underrated and humorous.

...that's about all I have. The rest of the good ones were Pre-Office, like 40 Year Old Virgin.

Dan in Real Life was awful. How do you have Dane Cook and Steve Carrell and not be funny AT ALL?!

In general I agree with you money/power/whatever tends to bring things to the surface...or increase the persons ability to do things.

A good person who wins the lottery can help more people...

A bad person that wins the lottery can hurt more people...

Hey there, tea people! There's an, uh...angry British ghost here to discuss tea with you, I think.


That... is phenomenal.


I tried kombucha the other day because I thought fermented tea sounded neat. It's definitely in the top 10 of the worst things I've ever tasted.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

What are the others.


In no particular order:

Soap
Massage oil (still have no idea how that wound up getting in my mouth)
Gasoline (funny story behind that one)
Pure cranberry juice
Some wine my sister's boyfriend's dad made
Straight up marmite
Some eggs I made when I was sick and didn't notice they were bad
Vomit flavored jelly beans
Some brownies I made without realizing the mix had grubs or something in it

My favorite local tea shop just moved... closer to me.

Now I get my favorite rooibos with alarming regularity...

My wife bought a LOT of Bigelow green tea. I actually am drinking it on the regular again.

Haven't used my main alias in a while...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I bought some Chinese brick tea, which (apparently) you're supposed to toast, then pulverise, then whisk vigorously while adding boiling water to it. It does taste pretty average unless you toast it, but I didn't bother with the crushing and whisking bit (no mortar & pestle, plus it's a bit too much hassle). Only for the very keen.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That's....ugh.

I just want a drink, not a part-time job.

Tea is just coffee with less direction in life.

Incorrect.

Tea is a tasty beverage of many uses and permutations.

Coffee is sludge dredged from the very sewers of Hell.
