Occasionally, when I'm totally absorbed in a session with a good tea, I realize - oops! - I let something slip. Then I have to stand up and leave the room, taking my cup with me, allowing a few minutes for the smell to dissipate, lest it ruin the aroma of my tea. This happens to me every now and then. Does it ever happen to you?

Tea (so can coffee, beer or lemon juice do to some other people) can stimulate one's stomach and small intestine, and therefore cause bowel activity. Need I say more? :mrgreen:

It means the tea is releasing trapped gas. It's a good thing.

My favorite is when I get so absorbed in a session I forget to let the dog out. Then, as I'm smelling the subtle change in aroma from the last infusion on my dancong or DHP I detect an overwhelming hint of... dog crap? And realize my pooch has left me a little present in the bathroom.
