« When I Almost Broke Up With TypePad AGAIN | Main | My Dark Places »



Have you ever tried one of those "tea ball" things... you put the loose tea leaves in them to steep...? That may open up some new avenues in finding a favorite tea... I know there are a few places that sell tea here and they have quite the selection... As for me I never quite got into drinking tea other than when I am sick or in the winter ...

I have to have at least two cups of coffee just to open my eyes in the morning. I have to have that "pick me up."

I do love Constant Comment Tea--have drank it since the mid 1970s. But give Earl Grey Tea a try if you haven't already it is remarkable!

At Christmas time I enjoy putting a candy cane in my cup of tea. That is really good--stir the tea with the candy cane--relaxing lift.


Lisa, have you had tea from Korea? My brother-in law who travels constantly and knows of my love for tea brought me some from his last trip.
Since I cannot read Korean I have no idea what it is. It comes in a nice box with some type of utinsel and green canister to mix it in. Looks very strange to me but hey, he says it's tea!



I remember the only time I tasted coffee. I was maybe nine years old and Gomez was drinking at the poolside bar of the Key Biscayne Hotel and he offered me a taste from his cup. I didn't care for it and never tried it again but sometimes I think I'm missing out on something because so much of our social interactions are based on coffee drinking rituals that I don't participate in.

Then again, tea can be relaxing.

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)

    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
