    Any bored chemists about? I need to know why making tea in ceramic pots always always ALWAYS makes my tea all scummy and leaves scales on the surface. It’s gross.

  • Why can’t I stop drinking it? Well, I did. And regretted it. So to avoid that feeling of regret I started again and don’t plan on stopping.

    That and I love the shock value when I tell coffee drinkers that I […]

    The mug I use for tea at work has a white interior. I don’t really wash the cup, just rinse it out. Now the inside is turning a lovely (or not so lovely) shade of brown. I am unsure of how I feel about this.

    • I do clean mine up from time to time. I like mugs with white interiors. I’ve used salt – it’s a really easy natural way of doing it. Just sprinkle in salt, take a wet paper towel and wipe. Rinse. Finish. Sparkling white as snow.

    I’ve seen this and while I like the idea, it looks like it needs to be a lot more comfortable before I’m going to want to plant my butt in it for reading. The ottoman is fine, though 😛

    I once, in order to be a good friend, ended up at a midnight release of the 2nd movie and picked up a Twilight shirt and some fabric paint in advance. It is now a “Team Shovel” shirt with a big sparkly shovel […]

    I don’t actually have that problem of not returning to a series. I’m horribly anal that way. Once I even finished reading a trilogy even though I hate hate hated the first book.

    Speaking of keeping books in […]

    I know what you mean about Game of Thrones. It took me forever to get through it. But I think the last third made up for the first two thirds. Whipped through that in no time at all. It’s one of those series that […]

    Haven’t had a cup of tea in three days. Perhaps my drink of choice is changing.

    • Who minds about the tea when you’re on here TW! Yay! I’m going to enjoy every update, steeped or not.

      • Don’t get too excited yet. Who knows how often or when I’ll actually be here. Or maybe this will be my Twitter replacement.

        • @teawench Or maybe this will your twitter replacement? Music to my ears. No, make that tea leaves to my cup.
          That aside I’ve been using twitter less recently myself. Sometimes there’s just too much stuff to wade through that isn’t all that terribly exciting.

    I’m a huge fan of books. I’ll read just about anything including cereal boxes and the small print on everything. One book I really liked recently was Hard Spell by Justin Gustainis. It’s paranormal without the […]

    I can certainly kid myself into believing I’ve been good. But in actual practice…maybe not so much.

  • Teawench posted an update 6 years, 6 months ago

    I got nothin’. Still waiting for my first cup of tea of the day to finish steeping.

  • Teawench posted an update 6 years, 6 months ago

    Someone needs to engineer a tea that kills a cold on contact.

  • Teawench posted an update 6 years, 7 months ago

    I’ve sorta been dabbling over on Steepster again. Not sure what prompted that.

    You weren’t kidding about the sugar rush. Holy cats!

    I bet neither one beats shopping for a house.

    • Oh well, yeah house hunting wins hands down of course.
      You get to look at perfect homes, one better than the next. The agent is practically your new best friend, and you almost wish you’d never have to sign that silly contract, so the fun doesn’t have to end.

    That’s why I don’t use those coupon sites. Even with user feedback, it’s still a tossup as to whether or the codes are valid. Usually not on the ones I’ve tried. anyway. However, I do like the idea of partnering with vendors and that’s more what I was getting at.

    I haven’t yet. dinner was way too filling. Maybe a Ceylon.

  • Teawench posted an update 6 years, 7 months ago

    What tea would go with pumpkin whoopie pies? I’m kind of excited about these and I don’t know why. I mean, other than them being pumpkin.

  • Teawench posted a new activity comment 6 years, 7 months ago

    I think it would be nice to have but there would need to be some ‘rules’, as it were. Places that gather coupon codes don’t usually have valid coupons. Either they’re expired with no notation to that fact or they’re just something some idiot made up to mess with people (I don’t actually know if people do this but I’ve rarely found a valid coupon…[Read more]

    • I’m thinking not so much rules, but visitor feedback. People try to use it, then rate on whether or not it was successful. Ones that work rise to the top and ones that fail vanish. This is a model similar to what retailmenot uses and seems to work well. The other side of it is that because the site will be focused on capturing the people who are…[Read more]
