When I was a wee lad (5-7 years), I drank several cups of coffee per day. 8| I was told it would stunt my growth (no idea where that notion comes from), but I turned out average height... although maybe I could have been 2 meters tall if I didn't. :S

I prefer black tea - mango is the fave, closely followed by cactus. I prefer loose tea to tea dust, so I buy it at the local tea shop, by the pound as it were.

Still, I have gotten into these new "flavoured" brands from Lipton - I think those manage to preserve the flavour very well and as such offer good combinations of fruits and black tea. I used to prefer Twinings, especially after they started sealing their tea dust bags to keep the flavour and aroma preserved, but now Lipton is right back up there ...

I'm going to buy that Lipton tea you showed us Kalah, but if it turns out terrible, your Tea Mastery credibility will be shattered and I will expose it everyone here. :devious: :devil:

In that case I will simply refuse to recognize your authority as an expert. ;) :tongue:

Seriously, though, there are lots of different tastes, and not all will be to your liking, I gather. Still, the aroma is very good, so I think you'll like it. :)

Although I like green tea even more. Sencha is awesome. White tea as well.

I suppose that's cool, so long as it's one and not lots of them.
Peace. Love. Penguin.

I had laptop broken few days ago - something with graphic card - it fixed by now. But the funny thing is that after I brought it from repair, there was huge storm at night and my internet connection went down for all weekend. So I thought I would play HoMM6 and check 50SoP at last... you can guess how it ended. :P

"Always Online is no problem in these days" - Yeah, right. :P Not to mention that few last days UPlay is working as always (read: U(won't)Play).

The family's coming over for dinner and to check out my flat, since most of them haven't been here yet. I'm making chicken and roasted potatoes. :yummy:

I can't access the official forum; it tells me my account does not exist. Does anybody else have the same problem?

Just bought a new mouse - a type I loved using in the navy but haven't used since. Click this link to see which kind it is. ;)

OMG. I first read "mouse" as "house" and when I clicked the link, I was shocked that you used to live in a mouse. :disagree:
