    The KLiP guy reached his initial monetary target in about three days.

    @xavier – I also liked the ease with which you could try the tea without taking it out. And @jackie, I have one of these: http://compare.ebay.com.au/like/400419953691?ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes

    I just kicked in some money for this. I like it. I encourage you all to do the same, if you can.

    This one: http://www.amazon.com/Nights-Trans-Arabian-Corporations-Boardrorom-ebook/dp/B0038HEOMW/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1362295198&sr=8-10&keywords=robert+godden

    In the first three chapters The Vampires represent Coca-Cola and Giselle represents Honest tea. Not very subtle

    I wrote a book on this subject. Honestly I did. And the answer is yes, they are different. It’s very rare that a purchase like this does not incrementally change the takeover target until it is unrecognisable and just another outpost of their masters.

    I wouldn’t say “fetal’ at all. Bloody Webster. But @xavier is right.

    We are launching a range of 11 food mixes, most of which contain tea. But only in Australia and not online yet!

    That is not a tea experience, @tashateacup. That is a substitute for a tea experience, and a poor one at that.

    Probably best not to mention teab*gs around here. Certain people get very cranky.

    Main: Taste

    Need a boost

    Thirst

    Social and shared enjoyment

    I doubt there’s ever an occasion when just one reason exists.

    In a teapot, tea tumbler or cha dao cup, depending on the exact amount of tea needed at any given time.

    I usually extract the amount of tea that feels right from the container digitally (i.e. I use my digits!), boil the kettle, let it cool a little for some teas the pour the water in.

    Steep until it feels and/or looks right.

    No measurements, timers or thermometers.

    Good luck with the research. It sounds like a fine idea.

    I am in Australia!

    I think that’s bollocks. There is no right or wrong answer to matching tea to drinking vessels. I use everything between a 40ml clay bowl and an imperial pint glass based on how much I want to drink, how much is in the pot, or what ever is nearby.

    Matching cups to moods, however, makes much more sense.

    I am not responsible for this. Though I wish I was. The two worst teas ever in one packet? Blueergh.

    I find it quite reasonable. If some clown offered me a herbal “tea” in a tea bag, I don’t see why I shouldn’t drown them.

    A much better idea is to read about them in my forthcoming book. I think they get about 4 lines.

    It’s easy, @jackie – To politely smash someone in the face with a box of tea bags, you must say “Excuse Me” just prior to the moment of impact.

    Burn, baby , burn.

    Ask them for instant coffee. When it offends them, politely smash them in the face with the box of tea bags, screaming “It’s EXACTLY THE SAME THING” .

    I agree with @identitea ! If it’s the book I think it is, the author asked me to proof read it but that coincided with my recent hospitalisation and illness, so I just never did. I can hardly bitch about it know.

    But just yesterday, I saw that same advice given by one of my local competitors. Amateurs!

    Jason, I borrowed your book from the library a few months back. Lady Devotea read it, but I couldn’t. I found the type too small.

    But the good news is, it’s in a small suburban South Australian library. That’s got to make you feel good.
