I would take rain, 60, or both right about now.

But rain is amazingly needed after the rainiest Spring I can remember. But now the ground is cracking ... :cry:

We're going the other way, had some record highs (90's) a week or two ago and past couple of days have been in the 60's with rain. After the rain and clouds cleared today there was new snow visible on Pikes Peak.

Whew!!! OK, all packed up and ready to ship tomorrow, Friday in the USA. Your drug er, I mean tea packets should be arriving in a few days.

Working on the international customs forms tonight, if I can find them, now where the heck did I put them???

I will be posting some recommendations for this tasting shortly.

Currently, Moe Green in my cup. In case you ever wondered what happened to Moe Green, sorta ended up like soylent green. :mrgreen:

So, enjoy your Moe Green! (Godfather parody)

They do include a value added substance to ensure immediate addiction. I think it is called umami! I think umami should require a prescription!!! :mrgreen: :lol:

Chip seemed so nice, but a few years ago I realised he was part of a terrorist cell engaged in trying to get the majority of the population teadrunk on Japanese greens, then he would assume power.

Round four is part of the plan.
