    Okay – aside from @xavier – it doesn’t look like anyone is interested in contributing to a tea wiki…..

    But what if it had a completely different format?

    ….so now I’m thinking….. The Hitchiker’s Guide to Tea.

    Satire, funny, lots of lies and untruths (like: tea will help you loose weight…) and so on. Something lighthearted like that might actually be a lot of fun!

    Any thoughts on that?

    As you know @peter I love that idea. A bit of humor, mild madness and fun that’s what tea needs too. I’m sure @thedevotea and many others would agree. Maybe @dinahsaur too.

    Oh sure. add a bit of madness and the opportunity to tell lies, and I’m sure to join in, right?
    Highly offended at the suggestion.



    Alright, count me in.

    Awesome! I love that you all think this is a good idea.

    I’ve started the first work on the site and things are coming along fine, but I need help in coming up with a tag line comparable to Don’t Panic.

    Right now, I’m thinking Don’t Steep it, (because it has the same number of syllables), which would be followed by …until you’ve read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Tea. I need more ideas on this, because I’m not totally confident with that one.

    Don’t panic until you’ve read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Tea.”
    Because it’s only after browsing the madness you’ll really need to worry.
    However, not sure if you’re allowed to use the don’t panic phrase like that?

    You off course have always a tea cup with you. (instead of a towel)

    Or better an old yixing teapot. Or to be silly a tea scoop or a tea boat or a tea table, the bigger the better. Either a Chinese one or an English Afternoon tea table complete with fresh still steaming muffins.

    Don’t read until you’ve made yourself a cup of tea.

    I’ve not forgotten about this project….I’ve actually been working on it all week. Have a few more web pages to create before I can comfortably make it public, but the website looks really good and I’ve worked out all the bugs with it.

    I really think this is going to be something fun that everyone can play with a bit.
