Default A Tea Addicts Strange Compulsion

Hi ALl,

Its me once again starting a new thread!!! I just wanted to mention
that in addition to having a tea addiction and by no means does this
counter insert with that of a caffeine addiction I would like to add
one other odd thing I do . I Count teas !!! Yes, thats right I
actually count how many I drink per day. It started back in Nov. '02
when I actually began counting teas and I made the goal of drinking
sum total 1,000. As of the current moment 8:19:15 (10/13/03) I've
reached a staggering (or is it???) 789 teas with the count having
started once again back in November.

I wonder if I am the only person in the world doing this bizarre
compulsion. Its a goal albeit, a strange though innocuous one, but a
goal nonetheless.

Now this is serious. I suggest you get professional help immediately. :-)

Ahem.

Anal retentive- adj. Designating personality traits such as avarice,
meticulousness, and obstinacy, traceable to a childhood fascination with the
retention of feces.

Default White teas- was " Strange Compulsion"

om...
Of course this stupid bitch is describing no one other than (hint,
hint) herself ... LOL!!!

No- I think she's describing people who count the number of teacups they
drink in a given day. I didn't notice any stupidity, though. Sarcasm, yes.
As for the bitchyness- that's in the eye of the beholder.

Now- back to our regular programming. I made a pot of Shui Mei white tea
from www.funalliance.com today and found the taste to be exceedingly
delicate. I agree with Joseph Kubera- tea does change in taste and scent as
it cools. It turns out that in the Chinese tea ceremony, people sometimes
drink from slim cups as the brew cools in order to appreciate the change in
smell and taste. By the way- I brewed this one with relatively cool (i.e.,
simmering) water for two minutes, maybe less. It's beginning to get cold out
(my building manager tested the heating system today) and this is the time
of year when I leave off plain water, lemonade or iced tea and move into the
hot stuff. I find it helps me concentrate on my writing, too, since I tend
to start late in the evening and work for a few hours.

A sum total of 1000 cups? What happens when you hit 1000, do you have to give
up tea?
