In this thread, we talk about tea. We talk about what we drink. What tea goes good with. What we mix with tea. Etcetera. Forever. Let it begin.
tell me more about loose puerh
i feel like most every website i have ever tried to order tea from has been mostly marketing. real life is the same. it makes me sad. i just want to know what kind of tea it is and where it's grown. if they can't tell me that, or if they're not selling it loose, i'm won't but it.
i like jasmine green tea. white tea is fine, but i burnt out on what i've got. both make really good iced tea, usually. i like to keep a pitcher in the fridge most of the time.
i love jasmine pearl tea, i love to eat the leaves too
Lapsang souchong's pretty good, if you're into the whole smoky smell.
TEA! Teateatea. I just love drinks in general, but tea is my favorite.
Wuxi Oolongs! I'm trying to get my hands on some Da Hong Pao, I have some Tie Luohan but I'm trying to ration it because it's 2fresh2furious.
I really like the variations in sweetness and the potential for powerful savory tastes in Oolongs. Iron Goddess is a great place to start if you're looking for the weird suspension between flowery lightness and hearty fullness to the liquor, and there's so much room to explore.
Also so many re-steeps and better with every steep. You can sit with a liter of water in a thermos and steep until your bladder gives way then heat up more water and then keep going.
I wouldn't really advise loose Pu-er. Messes with the fermentation and stuff and dries out way too quick, go for cakes.
I've pretty much disliked all teas except sweet tea, but recently I've been drinking lots of mugicha, like 2+ liters a day. Very soothing.
I just found out that I like Lady Grey more than Earl Grey. It's smoother than Earl Grey. I've been drinking the wrong tea all these years.
My favorite is gen mai cha, its such a cozy drink on a cold rainy day.
Avoid the fuck out of Prince of Peace brand. Worst tea I've ever tasted.
Organically grown in China... yeah, probably right next to an industrial facility.
i want ice cream
I never crave food, I feel as if I am missing out.
2 large poached eggs on delicious vogals type toast with butter.
A large helping of premium bacon, fried near crisp.
Fried mushrooms and tomato with a little cheese.
A few breakfast sausages.
A large hash brown
Tomato sauce on the side.
Large stack of pancakes on the side with maple syrup and butter/cream.
Large mug of good coffee.
Wasn't it Robert Heinlein who said in some of his books that breakfast is the most important meal of the day--because a Man of Action never knows when he may have the next opportunity to sit down and eat decent food--so you should eat as much as possible to "fuel up the machine?"
I know if I tried to eat that much at once for breakfast, I'd end up going back to bed and sleeping the rest of the day. ~_~;
I've always pronounced it jai-roh. My parents pronounce it jai-roh. I've never had a waiter or waitress point out that it was anything different when I've ordered one. A couple months ago I was talking about a gyro I had to an aquaintance and they had no idea what I was talking about. After I described it to them they said something like "Oh, you mean a gyro?", only they pronounced it sort of like 'year-oh' or 'euro'. What is the correct way to pronounce it? Are both ways acceptable, like tomato, or vase?
when I was in greece, they pronounced it yi-roh
Is that i as in fit? As in having? As in pie?
>>41 "i" as in "having." It could also be written as "yee ro" and the accent should be on the first syllable.
Incorrect. The G is just a transliteration of the Greek letter gamma. Before iota or epsilon (i or e) gamma makes a sound similar to the Y in English. So it's not a silent letter, it's just a spelling convention we're not used to.
I pronounce it with the Y sound cuz thats what my grandfather did and he was real good with pronouncing words from Mediterranean cultures (also he was quite taken with the foods). Probably because he lived there for a while.
and how do I grow: legumes, beans/peas/lentils,vegetable oil (margarine) and small area grains in the smallest place possible, to meet my vegetarian nutritional needs post SHTF
I suspect that, after the collapse of civilization, vegetarianism will be a luxury and you will be fortunate to have any food at all, animal-derived or otherwise.
Growing beans (summer) and peas (winter) are some of the simplest things to grow. Get a cow or goat for butter.
But yeah, it'll be near impossible without the infrastructure we have today
Make a semi-indoors growing bed. It could just be a shed on the side of your house. Also grow potatoes.

Fuck you, I drink Leninade. http://cassymuronaka.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/leninade.jpg
I want to use this article to dispute about whale catch.
English only (for International use).
I agree whale catch because Whales eat a lot of fishes (4 times human) and we'll not be able to have rations from sea. Also, we'll not be able to have rations from land with surplus population.
Please comment here.
OP is worst freaking troll ever.
>>73 poor willy, he'll be free alright in the after life. so does orca.

Guacamole How I like it
2 Full Avocados
1 Red Onion
Take Two avocados (not too ripe) and scoop them into a bowl, mash it with a spoon or fork or whatever. Depends on if you like it chunky or not.
Take about a quarter of the red onion and chop into small pieces. Mix it in.
Take about a quarter or less of a tomato and chop it small. Mix it in.
Take a full Jalapeno chop it small. Mix it in.
mmm...sounds yummy. I usually just buy the pringles, but Imma try this with (tortilla) chips
You could also try tamagoyaki if you'd like your omelet to be all exotic and asian like. It's not hard to make, give it a try.
Grilled Cheese + Tomato Soup
Very easy thing is a simply salad. Get lettuce, cucumber, tomato and carrot (those are my basic ingredients). You can add other things like onion etc though I never really bother out of laziness. Chop it all up, add lemon or lime juice, olive oil and salt and it is ready.
Note, when I make a salad I tend to use a whole lettuce, a whole cucumber, one tomato and one or two carrots. I have no idea whether anyone else does it like that.
oh good lord that is so not an omelette in any way or form.
