Not boiled weeds ... if it ain't Cammelia sinensis, it ain't TEA ... (damn straight!)

I though sweet tea was the only way to drink it until I was about 16. Now I can’t tolerate all that sweetness. (Born in TN, most of my life in TX :)).

I think "Chai" and "Tea" refer to exactly the same thing.

I don't think he was complaining about the term "chai" so much as the ingredients. :)

(I like herbal "tea" too, though.)

Hi!

I have not tried Keemun (it's exotic kind of tea in Russia) :( .
I like chinese loose green tea ("Green Snail") or Pu'er tea. I drink tea without sugar or milk.
Tea bugs are unavoidable though in some situations (trips etc.).

A beautiful poem by Lee Tzu Pheng (Singapore Cultural Medallion winner)

Sip your Tea
Nice and Slow,

No one Ever knows
when it’s Time to Go,
There’ll be no Time
to enjoy the Glow,
So sip your Tea
Nice and Slow...

Life is too Short but
feels pretty Long,
There’s too Much to do, so much going Wrong,
And Most of the Time You Struggle to be Strong,
Before it’s too Late
and it’s time to Go,
Sip your Tea
Nice and Slow...

Some Friends stay,
others Go away,
Loved ones are Cherished, but not all will Stay,
Kids will Grow up
and Fly away,
There’s really no Saying how Things will Go,
So sip your Tea
Nice and Slow...

In the End it’s really
all about Understanding Love,
For this World
and in the Stars above,
Appreciate and Value who truly Cares,
Smile and Breathe
and let your Worries go,
So, Just Sip your Tea
Nice and Slow....

Between "B"irth and "D"eath, there's "C"hai, which we are living for.
