I'm starting my tea drinking for the day, at 10 pm, with some Houji-genmaicha.

I love tea, but I'd give it up tomorrow if I could drink milk again.

Both of those oolong sound fantastic. The Legend...did you just replenish this one?


It's an internet tradition - First Post.

Nope, I'm still drinking from the 150 g I bought in early fall, that and the alishan are lasting forever, don't need to much per cup and they are not going stale despite my using some new plastic containers (with inner lids). Guess I've found a new storage method. Not that I mind that they are lasting, but it would be nice to run out by the spring gao shan harvest. heh.. :)

Er, lactose intolerance. Usual story, I guess. I hit my early twenties and my body just turned on me. Hrmph.

I took up serious tea drinking as a replacement for milk, so I'm afraid the two are inextricably linked in my mind. Plus I'm a bit drunk (and therefore maudlin) tonight. Sorry. :lol:

As I wrote the poll answers, I thought to myself, "WWTS?"

I know! We definitely need some. I rather like this one :mrgreen:, but it doesn't really say "drunk", does it? Wacky, maybe, but not drunk.

Old school ascii emoticons are:

drunk :*)
very drunk %*}


I never would have imagined that knowing that would make me old... :(

....Actually, yeah, that's a good description. We definitely need something else, though; there's a big difference between "I'm a bit drunk" and "I may puke soon." :P

If it helps, tenuki, I do remember the old school ascii emoticons. I'm just not quite old enough to have ever needed them to describe my own drunkenness. :wink:

*cackles evilly* Er, sorry, sorry. Can I get away with claiming that drinking makes me maudlin and evil? No? Darn. Guess I'm just naturally evil, then.
