Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
We had a tea thread fairly recently but things move swiftly in SE++ and I could not find it to resurrect it.
For the first time in my life I am in personal possession of a rather nice kettle (with variable temperature so I can heat my water to the necessary temperature for either black or green teas, so I can pretend to be a tea-snob), a teapot with a tea cozy, and a wide selection of teas.
I'm back to drinking 4-6 cups a day and it is glorious.
So, SE++, what teas do you like to drink and how do you take them? Do you have any good ones to recommend?
I am accepting of all hot water beverages masquerading as teas here. None of this 'it's only really tea if it uses tea leaves' snobbery. We can discuss herbal brews, black, green and white teas, oolong; whatever you would like.
Mori and I received a large selection of sampler teas from adagio.com recently. I am enjoying in particular the green pekoe, ginger and peach black, valentine black (mm it smells of chocolate), honeybush orange and jasmine #12
Chamomile is a firm favourite, particularly chamomile and mango. That is my latest herbal addiction.
Ginger anything works really well to settle the stomach/stave off nausea, if you did not already know. Just chop up some fresh ginger and stick it in hot water.
Mint tea is also awesome. Best made with fresh mint, but you can also use dried mint or mint teabags.
I take all my tea as it is, now. Brits, I have given up the practice of putting milk in it.
It is only a little kettle and a little teapot but it does very well for two people.
