Oh I doubt it. You should just send them all to me.

Thanks. There's a Publix about an hour away from me in what we call "the big city" of Albany, GA.. :lol:

I've always been wary of online friendships (some of us old ladies are like that). But in recent months one very good friendship has grown from TeaChat, plus a couple other chatters with whom I PM.

On my 5th or 6th steeping of Huang Guan Yin (from teaspring). A light tea with some sweetness and fruity tones. Clean and lovely on ice, too.

So far I haven't met any friend. Could be because it's my first day here.

My teacup is empty right now and it's to late (22.08) to make any more, but the latest one was a lovely third steeping of Tie Guan Yin. Sweet and much, much better than the first steeping.

Yesterday I drank about 1 litre of Organic Ceylon, to prevent me from going to sleep at work, and then two steepings of Bai Mu Dan for the enjoyment. Have to post this today because my membership registration got messed up :)

That depends, Trioxin. Do you have the whole collection or just some of the low rent burroughs? Nothing too unisex, I hope. :wink:

I haven't noticed PG Tips in the Publix stores in my part of FL, so phone before you make the trip!


Mary's Note: Ack! Originally Sal's message was longer and addressed two parts...but I wasn't paying attention and when I went to quote Sal, I hit my special Mod edit button instead...and totally rewrote the post without noticing! So sorry! This is the most I could restore. :(

TKY oolong from TS compliments of EO. I am still working on this one.

I need to drink fast so I can have another tea today.

I started my day with a cuppa Oriental Spice with a hint of sugar and milk. It was lovely and I raved about it at work.

I think my afterdinner cuppa will be Green Citron. It just smells too good for me to not have it tonight!

And as for the poll...I have a RL friend that lured me to Adagio but I don't think she chats. As for other friends from TeaChat...I just started so I reckon we'll see what happens. :)

That's a very good point. I usually go to the Tampa area when I'm in Florida. PG Tips was not in every Pubix. The only one I saw that had it was a very upscale store (seriously, this thing rivaled Whole Foods). The store itself looked like it was built within the past three years.

I have a feeling PG should be easier to find than what it is...my local grocery (Meijer) carries it, and my particular Meijer is faaaaaar from upscale

I am sipping O-Cha Guricha...came out really nice tonight. Cooler water seems to really help.

I'm a little amazed that I've got people talking about PG Tips!

For those who aren't familiar with it, it's a popular British tea brand that is sold quite widely here in Canada. I have no idea how available it is in the US.

I did manage to find a fetching little TV advert on YouTube, with Wallace and Gromit advertising PG Tips. It's a couple of years old, and the special offer is expired, so hopefully it's OK for me to post it here. Given the enthusiasm for special tea gizmos, I think some folks here might appreciate it.
