Oh Wait that's a different one! :lol:

Everton supporter here, what with my dads side of my family coming from Liverpool. I reckon you might just pip Manchester Utd. to the league.

I live in New Jersey...nothing special about my town. I used to live in upstate NY which had a lot more interesting history. However, I do live just 7 minutes from a nice tea room...even if it IS an English-style tea room... :roll:

The one great thing about NJ/NY...the BEST pizza and bagels in the USA!!

This morning, I have white monkey in my cup.

Thanx for making me laugh this morning. I needed it!

I'm in northeast GA at the base of the Appalachian Mtns. The trail head is in the northern part of our county.

Chocolate mint tea w/bfast this morning. Headed out for another busy day!

I've lived on Florida's Central East Coast for the past 5 years. Before that I spent 32 years living in beautiful upstate NY but left because of the horrible weather there. I grew up in Pennsylvania near Reading.

CHIP - I have climbed the Pagoda in the hills of Reading many times as a teenager and even spent a summer as a busboy at Stokesay Castle. Is it still there ?

In my cup this morning I have Adagio's Irish Breakfast - it's yummy.

Happy Anniversary!

West for me - California

Here in southern CA I guess aside from our now dwindling orange groves, our claim to fame is Disneyland.

In my cup - Everest breakfast blend - thanks omegapd

Have a nice day all!

Don't worry. I'm from Michigan and think it is really silly that we are considered Midwest. We are almost completely in the Eastern timezone (which blows people's minds). I guess we are just conflicted here. :)

Anyway, Detroit represent! Well, if you consider the burbs part of Detroit, sure. No one knows where my city is, and since I am only a mile from the infamous 8 Mile, I will go with Detroit. As for Detroit's claim to fame? Well, I think you all know a few so I am not going to bother.

Trioxin, I went to school in Iowa. 4 years there and I was ready to beat myself to kill myself. Or someone else. In-laws are in in Illinois now and I try to avoid visiting as much as possible. And some of that has to do with the state, I swear.

I had the same issue.....but, I think most non-Texans consider us to be SW, so that is what I picked.
I'm with y'all on that issue. Thanks for the map, Chip. Otherwise, since there was no US-Texas option, I would have been lost. :oops:

Fort Worth-ish, Texas here. Really a little bit north and west but close enough.

Having an iced orange oolong this morning. No time to brew this morning, was running late, but brought all my goodies so I could make some green pekoe later.

Fort Worth, Texas.

I'm almost out of tea :!: :shock: :cry: I used up the last of my kukicha last night, I have a single serving of matcha left, and 1, maybe 2 rounds of sencha left.

Thanks for the promotion, Trioxin. I'm appointing you Minister of Darjeeling. The Royal Printers will be getting the coronation announcements out posthaste. I have been so planning for this ...

Country Bumpkin living for me...about an hour North of the Florida line. Born and raised in South Florida, though, came up here for college 15 years ago and never left. No plans to either...

NMTC Assam in my pot this morning.

I'm going with the assumption Colorado is west, right?

And this morning I'm drinking some Yutaka Midori. I really love this stuff.

I'm a Kentucky boy myself. Home of the Kentucky Derby, Corvettes, and bourbon. Can't beat that combo.

Today just might be a no tea day, but we shall have to see.

Heh. My husband is a Spurs fan. I spend a lot of time soothing him after matches.
