After the kids go to bed, I have my nightly date with Earl Grey.

He makes me feel all warm inside.

In America, tea is associated with bubble baths, kittens, blustery days, and princesses.

So weird!

That is an interesting thing.


Heh.... tea + bubble bath =

I have had tea in a bubble bath. It is very relaxing. Champagne is also good or a glass of wine. Candles, music, aromatherapy, warmth. Very de-stressing for me. Especially with the awesome soaking Roman tub I once had

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

It is my tea of choice, I have a kettle right next to my computer (but in the safest possible way)

4. Drink the tea with the bag still in the mug: you have to allow the tea to steep for 8 minutes, then you remove the bag and drink it.

My late English grandmother would be so proud of me if she could read this!



Agreed on all points except for the second half of #4. 8 Minutes may be too long for some teas. Steeping time depends largely on the blend. If you were to steep a Darjeeling for 8 minutes with (as in #3) boiling water, you'd end up with a bitter mess and you'd lose all the soft, sweet, rosy flavours. Darjeeling ought to be made with very hot (close to boiling, or just boilied) water, and steeped for 4-6 minutes.

Obviously the exception isn't the rule, but 8 minutes of steeping, in a lot of cases, makes a very strong cup of tea that might sacrifice natural flavours in the release of those bitter tannens. It's all personal taste, though. Best bet is to experiment with it until you find a preparation that you enjoy.

Cheers

I take tea bags everywhere with me, as I have a particular fondness for the Clipper Fairtrade blend. I took a few boxes on vacation with me, and always have them in my bag for when i'm at school and such.

I'm aware of how tragic it is, but i'm passionate about my tea and coffee
