Was that the ginger orange peach white from NM Tea? I'm drinking it now. I tossed in a sugar cube {ducks} & it's not bad. Don't know that I'll reorder it, though.

Waiting on the edge of my seat to see the results of the challenge!!! :wink:

Yes, that would be the one! The delicate white tea flavor is lost, but over all it's not bad, as you say. :D

Yes, will he or won't he, that is the question????

This challenge may have to wait til tomorrow since it is after 11 PM at this writing.

I accept the challenge, but will have some POM juice nearby, just in case.

We used to think Pentox and Olivierco were one or at least twins.

I begin to wonder now about Victoria and Henley!!! :twisted:

I'll post a quick one now and post better pictures of my cup when I have access to a better camera next weekend. At least I figured out how to use my camera phone, which does not give the glaze justice at all. The outside color is turquoise green and black speckle and the inside is a pale spring green. It has indents on either side for holding it. The cup holds a little over 5oz of liquid. I found at a local store that sells pieces by artists in the area for all of $6. The flowers in the brandy snifter are purple lilacs that I picked yesterday. In the cup is some Fukamushi Sencha Supreme. Not as pretty as Salsero's pictures but as good I could do for now.

Ending this TeaDay on a cool note, Devites has posted a YouTube performance of his own piano solo tribute to Shincha. Worth a listen, guys. The portal lies below:

All thanks to the Federation, by the way.

It's a little-known fact that when Picard was assimilated, the entire Borg collective developed a sudden, overwhelming craving for Earl Grey tea (hot).

Is that why Chip has been putting bergamot in his shincha?

Nope. You say it's unflavored? Most Monk's Blends have grenadine added to it and I hate that stuff so never even looked at the description. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up!
