Comments on "The problem with tea" - Faerye Net 2006-11-13T12:43:44+00:00 The Connoisseur's New Husband 2006-11-13T12:43:44+00:00 2006-11-13T12:43:44+00:00 <p>You may be aware that I have recently wedded another addict of your peculiar perversion. I myself really can&#8217;t quite get the taste for the stuff, despite a concerted effort over the last few seasons. But I am a connoisseur of connoisseurships, so I have gather knowledge about the goodness of teas, according to the ratings of a number of others, which may indeed be more objective than if I just rated them myself. <br /> <br /> Which is to say, while Republic puts out (on national distribution) the best white teas (I even like their white honeysuckle) and some very pleasant fruits (blackberry sage, blueberry, and of course ginger peach), Golden Moon is easily the most reliably superlative tea. They have the best Moroccan Mint, a similarly best imperial oolong, and they also carry less common gems like Honey Pear. No Golden Moon sampled to date has dissapointed, which cannot be said of many other brands. <br /> <br /> Regarding you stock, I suppose I have been conditioned to think this is natural, as tea lasts well, is relatively cheap as beverages go-even for the really good stuff-and suitable for just about all occasions.</p> EMeta Re: Two cupboards! 2006-11-11T10:46:57+00:00 2006-11-11T10:46:57+00:00 <p>I&#8217;m counting cups and pots&#8230;and to be honest, a little stash of cocoa and coffee. Really. I challenge you to look some time. Hot beverages: 2 cupboard doors.</p> felicity Two cupboards! 2006-11-10T14:13:04+00:00 2006-11-10T14:13:04+00:00 <p>And I thought my two shelves (three if you count cups) was a serious addiction!</p> grizelda
