Hey, Victoria. Did a certain TeaFriend who shall remain nameless ever keep his end of the bargain? :wink: I know yesterday was Mother's Day & I'm sure he spent the day being a very good son but he's had all day today to pick up that gauntlet!

i have dumped some old teas but never in the trash just out the window. i obviously did this with my grandmother out of the house because she would leave it sitting for years even if it isn't being touched. i don't understand it but if she doesn't know it won't bother her

today was a green tea day

Yes, I throw out tisanes when they become stale. I have also discarded some samples that weren't to my taste.

I also pitched a near-full canister of Rishi something hibiscus and ginger tisane in the trash. I VIOLENTLY dislike the taste of ginger except for pickled ginger. When something tastes that vile to me, I have a hard time recalling that there are others who really enjoy the flavor of ginger.

I haven't had a good cup of anything since Friday morning. For a place that prides itself on its food, the tea doesn't rise to the occasion.

Ginger is to witches as garlic is to vampires...I never knew that!

"For a place that prides itself on its food, the tea doesn't rise to the occasion" this requires some explanation!!!

Hmmm that is a good question. Maybe that is why we haven't see CHIP around.
Hummmmm.

If I don't like a tea, it just sits. Luckily it rarely happens.

*sips from tiny Japanese cup, slurping the Asian way*

I refuse to answer on the grounds it may incriminate myself.

I said yes. I threw away a green anji sample as well as the dried fruit tisane sample from Adagio. Neither appealed to me. I probably should have offered them to a friend but I didn't think of that at the time.

Every time I try to drink it, I just stop with it right in front of my mouth. Just cant drink it.


Amen. :)

I trashed some ROT rooibos so I could use the tin, but even after rinsing and airing it out for several weeks I couldn't get that smell to go away. Perhaps one day I'll find a rooibos I like.
