We just recently had a snow/ice storm here in the Seattle area that knocked over tons of trees and powerlines (as well as causing mass havoc on the roads). My power was out for about two and a half days, and by Saturday (when I couldn't escape to work), I was definitely shivering and wishing desperately for a hot cup of tea!
I was caught flatfooted, though, and didn't have so much as a stick of firewood in my place. I ended up going to my local tea shop once they opened to order a pot of tea (and abuse their internet), and boy, that first sip? The BEST tea I've ever had.
Anyone else ever deal with an unexpected spell of tealess-ness? Been desperate enough to boil water for tea over a duraflame log? A bunch of votive candles?
