So, does this place sell tea by the butt, cask, cylinder, drum, firkin, hogshead, keg, pipe, receptacle, tub, tun, vat, or vessel? Naturally I wouldn't mind some strong stinging nettle tea, but I like to hide my kegs in a dark corner and throw some fermenting trout in them for a couple of months before I finally drink it. Ahh, I can taste it now.
Mayo for Mayor.... or was it the other way around?

In the rare occurance the two people could order separate drinks in a store, much less when one such as myself is ordering TEA at a TEA shop. You're the only zo sick enough to order coffee here :wink:

I'm sure we can offer coffee to those that haven't learnt to appreciate tea yet. We can wean them off it gradually. =)

I'll have a double tall espresso. Better make it really gradual.

I don't really want to start a coffee vs. tea debate (mostly cuz there's not much of a debate there...coffee rules).



That being said, I've never liked tea much and mostly because of the dry finish it seems to leave in my mouth. Coffee just seems to have a smooth richness to it that I find oh so satisfying. and don't ge me started on proper espresso...mmm, crema...like frothy gold.



The thing about coffee is that it's so pervasive that it can easily (and often is) so poorly made that it gets a bad rap. That thin, tasteless, heartburn-inducing crap that the diner waitress is shlepping around a carafe of ("regular or decaf, honey?") is not, repeat NOT coffee. I think it might be some sort of remnant of cleaning solution from a prison on a far off planet.



I'm sure the same can be said of tea though. There are those that probably make piss-poor representations of it.



Perhaps I need to broaden my hot beverage horizons. For now, I'm just happy with my java.

And that decaf isn't, trust me. Occasionally a pot of decaf gets made, often that orange pot is topped up with real coffee from the brown pot. On average, it's about 40% decaf. I drink both, because some days I actually want to sleep. Otherwise decaf is blasphemy.

I myself do enjoy both tea and coffee. The family drinks tea nearly every day when it isn't too hot out. In other words, we can pretty much drink tea every day when it's not summer. We like to drink tea after dinner to aid in digestion. However, I also do like to brew my own cup of tea at other times too just for the heck of it. For those individual cups of tea, I've got good stuff from Tazo that I like to use for that. As for coffee, I usually have two coffee beverages a month, just enough to be considered to be as a Seattle local (Really, folks around here give you funny looks or think that you're not from around here if you tell them that you don't drink coffee). I may not drink it that often, but I still do enjoy it.



However, I do think that the prevalence of coffee drinks do sometimes give it a bad reputation. The coffee is only as good as the quality of the beans and how it's prepared and brewed. It's the same with tea too. For me, I do find that both types beverages are equally satisfying.
