    do people actually drink the pumpkin spice lattes at starbucks

    that stuff is ridiculously overseasoned

    is overseasoned the right word to use here?

    some russian caravan tea which is basically an earl gray with less bergamot

    WOAH WOAH WOAH! Wait a second, Mr. Uninformed. This is NOT the case and you must have gotten shit Russian Caravan.

    Russian Caravan is a combination of Oolong, Keemun, and Lapsang Souchon. It has no bergamot and doesn't use ceylon.

    It should have a medium smokey flavour with hints of malt... and it's fucking DELICIOUS!

    Though, I prefer Lapsang Souchon, because I'm an a guy who likes his flavours intense (like I like my men).

    Also, as far as store bought coffee goes... This is my favorite:

    small_Organic_Bolivian_Blend.jpg

    It's so fucking smooth with caramel undertones (it isn't flavored or nothin')... plus it's organic and fair trade. And fucking DELICIOUS.

    I think they put crack in it or some shit... both Natasha and I have dreamt about it.

    But... then it isn't russian caravan it's something else. Something which may be (and probably is) deliciously tasty, but something else.

    The idea of comparing Russian Caravan with Earl Grey just staggers my mind. I mean, they're two totally different teas with totally different preparation methods. That's like comparing a white tea with lavender to a green tea with lavender, because they both have lavender.

    .... holy fuck, white tea with hints of vanilla and lavender is so fucking good.

    I'm not usually a fan of flavored coffee but I love the pumpkin spice lattes. They're more of a dessert than a real coffee though. Like a cup of pumpkin pie.

    It's a blend of teas, but not necessarily all black.

    Oolong is a midway between green and black, while Keemun is a black tea (not found in earl grey and having a totally distinct fruity flavour), and Lapsang is a black which tastes like a campfire (and it's my favorite ever).

    Earl Grey is a blend of Assam and Ceylon (usually, if I recall correctly) which taste nothing like...

    Y'know what? This is dumb. Let's get together and have tea.

    I think that's a pretty apt comparison

    I picked up the tendency to treat coffee and tea as a kind of digestional aid from my parents, so I'm a bit predisposed to disliking any varieties that are overly taxing on the palate
