Default Tea references Ayn Rand We The Living

The time period is 1923-25 Petrograd. Although not a biography Ayn
Rand said "She lived the character". This is a time of State
rationing and limited privatation called New Economic Policy(NEP).
Tea seems to be readily available. The book isnt clear how it is
obtained. Sugar is so scarce only saccharine used in the tea when
served from samovar is only obtainable from NEP stores. Every
politico, sociologist, psychologist, philosopher has an opinion of
this book. My take Dont Fall In Love During A Revolution.

Jim

PS I found it interesting Google Books didnt give every reference to
tea or saccharine in its search function.

I just finished Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston which had a two
page description of British morning tea with all the pastries. I will
say the British figured out the link between tea and food. That is
the success of my local British tea shoppe. You have to book in
advance for their tea and chocolate. I never developed a taste for
chocolate. The last time I remember you were back packing through
Yunnan.

Lew, no adventures apart from the humdrum daily ...

Jim, yep, happily spent about 4 months of 08-09 between Kunming and
the mountains to the west ... since then, refer to 'Lew, no
adventures...' above.

Likewise, I'm not a great chocolate fan (or great fan of chocolate). I
used to like 'chocolate notes' in beer but have even grown away from
these. A sprinkling of a very cocoa-ey dian hong in my assam, however,
and a very hot flannel is needed to wipe the smile from my face!
