I'm from Glasgow in Scotland, although I'm living now in Edinburgh, on the other side of the country (a whole 40 miles away... :shock: )

I've just had an evening bowl of matcha and am about to have an early night, for once...

Sorry to hear about Wrigley, Russian Soul. I hope you found some comfort in drinking your tea.

this is very true. live in central NJ (hint there is an ivy league university 20 minutes away from me). i had a bagel once in va and almost died, it was baaad. but at heart, i am a northern jersey girl- not so much bridge/tunnel-like tho. :P
Princeton is a beautiful area of NJ, Xine!!

Bagels in Virginia--taste like lenders bagels from the grocery freezer section! :roll:

No offense to those in the midwest...but what is the deal with your cutting your pizza like a grid instead of a pie? How is one supposed to eat a "slice"? :shock:

It seems to me Italians seem to cut it into pie slices, but Greeks tend to cut into a grid, like baklava. I love PIZZA no matter how you slice it!!

Going for my third steep of this amazing Jin Xuan oolong. (But saving room for TKY)

For about the past year I've been happily living in upstate NY. Global warming seems to be mitigating the winters a bit. I grew up in NE Florida, down by omegapd and Salsero.

Right now I'm enjoying a very rare evening cup of Assam. That's usually my morning tea. Not sure what came over me.

Jim, at the post you want to quote, in the upper right is a Quote icon to click onto. The entire quote quote will go into a new post window for you to respond to. You can delete as much of the quote as you want as long as you leave the [brackets].

Sakura Sencha to likely finish off my TeaDay.

Trivia of the day. TeaDay is within 5 posts of surpassing Teawares as the top posted forum on TeaChat. :!:

I'm surprised that's only happening now. This topic gets like 45+ post a day doesn't it?

Maybe I should go post in teawares, keep it a competition.
