  1. http://www.singleestates.com/ i went to school with ananda (the man behind the operation), so i am biased, but he knows his tea--the family's been at it for almost a century (if not more). the store's not open yet but the site's a great resource for information on indian teas.
  2. I don't know why it took me so long to discover the wonderful electric kettles that are out there. I use one made by Black & Decker (of all companies!) and it's perfect for the office. The base plugs in but the kettle itself detaches from the base so you're not encumbered. I got mine at Target but I'm sure they're widely available. Before, we had a spare coffeemaker that a couple of us tea drinkers (I drink loose-leaf green tea from MellowMonk) were using to heat water for tea, but it never got the water hot enough. We even have one of those 180-degree spigots that dispenses extra hot wate
  3. Yes.. Yours will close. And yours too.. http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/pressdesc.asp?id=833 Little surprised I didn't see this already in this forum. Will this help the troubled franchise? Do you even CARE? Will the streets of the United States be littered with people unable to get their "fix"?
  4. I found a lovely site for tea related items- notepaper cards cookie cutters www.theteatable. com I crochet and at present I am making a tea cozy for someone in a swap-I needed some little extra somethings for the pkg and found this site. Joanne
  5. I have purchased some samples of spring 2004 oolongs from www.shanshuiteas.com and www.thefragrantlleaf.com My favorites are the 10-20% oxidized oolongs I am also ordering some samples of korean green spring 2004 from shan shui- I have found both companies to be reliable-and the teas above average. I have not been disappointed. I am not connected with either-just a happy customer and tea drinker. The Fragrant Leaf had a tea tasting at the Parrot Mill Inn in Chatham which I attended ;and I had a chance to taste some of their new Spring 2004 oolongs- joanne
  6. doubtless this bizarre piece of boulderana has been discussed here before. if it hasn't here's a quick primer: for some reason dushanbe (the capital of tajikstan) and boulder are sister cities. to mark this relationship the city of dushanbe sent a slew of craftsmen and artists to build a lavish, traditional tajik teahouse in boulder (i'm not sure what the coloradans sent in exchange--perhaps a lifesize cut-out of john elway?). anyway, the teahouse has a great tea selection--including constantly updated darjeeling single estates--and pretty good tea-time food (and very crappy dinner food--never
  7. Twinings Ceylon Teabags: 'A bright, amber tea that is very refreshing and thirstquenching.' Wrong. 'A bland, weak tea that tastes of very little.' Does anyone have a better experience? Tesco had no Lapsang Souchong, which is one of the only teas for a hangover.
  8. HI everyone: i am a chinesebusineman about the tea,i am very interesting about people'habit to drink tea.of course different tea has different function,but people'habit is also important.so, can you tell me what colour tea do you like,can you tell me the reason? i'll be appreciated if you can reply. thank you here is china best daughter's ring
  9. a very simple combination for me, but a very powerful one, taste- and enjoyment-wise....tea (earl grey mainly) and dark chocolate (like a small wedge of sharffenberger or vrona). that's it. no cake. no scones. just the tea and the chocolate. heightens my appreciation of both. sound strange to anyone? yours? cheers :) hc
  10. Warm weather is finally here again in the northeast (although it will plummet into the 20's tonight!). After countless experiments in the past trying to duplicate but also do better than the Starbucks frozen frappuccino drinks... I'm trying a new approach. The clone of a frozen frappuccino involved use of extra strong coffee and/or espresso mixed with some sugar. A bit of pure vanilla extract, a small amount of chocolate syrup (not enough to really be tasted as chocolate) and a dash of salt were then added along with milk. Just before blending with ice, a tiny bit of carageenan was added as
  11. http://www.delocator.net from the website: Cafés are vital social outposts that have historically provided subjective, social, local, and at times, irrational interaction, inspiration, and nourishment to artists, hipsters, musicians, activists, intellectuals, radicals, and others alike. Currently, independently owned cafés around the world are under aggressive attack; and their numbers have been sharply decreasing for many years. delocator.net is a means to preserve these local businesses. Transnational corporations, like Starbucks, Diedrich, Gloria Jean's, and the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf are
  12. This is another interesting topic offered by Nakagawa of Flavor coffee http://www.flavorcoffee.co.jp/index.html (Japanese only) Nakagawa is sometimes asked by customers to modify and improve their roasters. The Roaster Modification Museum page http://www.flavorcoffee.co.jp/3f/r-index.html (Japanese only) lists some of the roasters he has modified so far. Among the list is the Alpenrost http://www.flavorcoffee.co.jp/3f/3f-15.html . Let me translate part of his description of what he did about the roaster. *** Side view With the cover open Perspective view, with the cover open Heater Roas
  13. I have been exploring the world of lightly oxidized oolongs- I have tried bao zhong, li-sha and dong ding oolongs from www,tentea.com www.thefragrantleaf.com www.shanshuitea.com www.teacentre.ca www.uptontea.com www.rishi-tea.com are there others on e-gullet who enjoy these teas? joanne
  14. Normally I work at home, but one day a week I go to one of my client's office to do some in-house work. Rather than have my own coffee before I go, I have theirs when I get there. Yes, I could buy some on the way, but I'm a cheap bastard. Anyway, they've got one of those newfangled Flavia machines, which if you haven't seen one is supposed to be an 'improvement' over ordinary institutional office coffee by making individual cups of coffee from little packets of instant coffee. Or at least I assume it's instant--it brews too fast for real coffee. It is, as a former boss used to say, not good. O
  15. Hi all, I've been looking for a good source of loose tea in the NYC area, Assam tea in particular. I just don't like tea bags as much. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks, Sam.
  16. I have several favorites. I'll start with Camomile. I buy a bouquet at the farmers market and leave it on the dining table while I sip. Chamomile is very relaxi ng.
  17. Just a quick question: is there any green tea that a pregnant woman can drink? It seems I can only find caffeinated teas in my markets. Thank you, Kimo (20 weeks pregnant)
