    I have always been a coffee drinker. And a single malt scotch drinker....

    But dang I believe hot tea can be addictive. This late night calming tea puts me out like a light.

    I prefer sweet tea, but did try out a new stove and had a cup of hot tea about a week ago. It probably had been at least 20 years since I had hot tea, and I must admit I really enjoyed it.

    I picked up the Green Tea habit while in Asia. Now I begin each day with a large cup of Green or Black tea.

    As noted earlier, it can become 'addictive'...

    I have an 4 liter Zojurushi hot pot in my office and over 45 different varieties of loose tea. I usually fill the pot twice in a week, mostly for me, but also for guests.

    Addictive, no, but certainly obsessive and comforting!

    A mug of hot black tea after a big meal settles the stomach nicely.

    About a year ago, I got addicted to Sassafras Tea. Put some honey and alittle sugar, and you have a delicious brew. I do drink black tea(Lipton) and some green tea but my all time favorite is Sassafras!

    I like hot tea and have tried it in several places. In Senegal they call it Ataya. It is the most addictive hot tea that I have found.

    I am currently drinking pumpkin spice tea fro Trader Joe's. I usually drink Chai flavors.

    I am allergic to most teas. Pine needle tea with honey I do like a lot.

    The day cannot start without coffee.

    That said, a buddy of mine turned me on to "Make Mine a Builders" British tea. Brews is seconds. The local mega mart had the 80 bag box for $5.

    The first time I made a cup was figuring it was like the other British black teas. It's not. Left the bag in there for several minutes and was jittery at the end.

    Now it's my go-to in the woods. A solid quick brew that's a true pick-you-up. I get a kick out of the marketing on the side of the box - Britain wasn't built on camomile. Makes me smile.

    I was invited to experience a sort of friendship ceremony with Ataya while in Senegal about 18 years ago... how time flies. They started with a small aluminum tea kettle and built a charcoal fire to heat the water. The tea was a black tea. Fresh peppermint and lots of sugar was added into the kettle. Once heated, they poured each participant a small cup (think shot glass) of hot, strong, minty, very sweet tea. As the tea heated, conversation took place to begin to build a relationship/friendship. Cooking outdoors over a small charcoal fire, it took some time to heat the tea. As it was hot when cooked, it took a few minutes to cool. The first round of tea was intense! Once that round was drank, water was added to the kettle to begin cooking another round of tea. If I remember correctly, there were 4 rounds of tea, adding only water to the kettle between each round. By the time the "ceremony" was completed, the tea had weakened in intensity, but the new friendship, through time and conversation, had strengthened.

    The tea was memorable, but the ceremony was even more so. Sitting in the dirt in the shade of a large tree, thousands of miles from home, being welcomed into a culture very different from my own. I'll never forget it.

    I heard somewhere that tea trees are called that because captain cook was dying for a cup of tea when he landed in Australia and made a tea from the leaves. Most of you may know that tea tree oil is what makes hippies smell like wet wool and dead grizzly bear! If your having trouble kicking a tea habit. Try captain cooks method.

    Yes, I like the Wolof, their food and customs. I did some exercises with the gendarmerie. IMG_1642.JPG

    Yes, it gets the froth from pouring back and forth from Arms length.

    I only remember one Wolof word "jurajuff" means thanks.
