    I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants".

    I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.

    Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.

  2. I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south.

    Im familiar with hot tea as my dad’s sister, who lived in California, used to ship him crates containing a great variety of teas. She send him cups, saucers, tea steeping deals on chains and whatnot. He preferred coffee but would drink some out of respect for her. I would try if not as a kid I didn’t like hot tea or coffee, just sweet iced tea. Now days, I love hot tea with nothing added and wish I had a relative who wanted to ship me crates of teas. I life English tea, Irish Tea, Green tea, Chai, and love Oolong tea.

    interesting topic for sure.


  3. Rick was a true friend and mentor. I am very proud to say we were friends. Rick spent many hours helping me with the hobby and also with personal things. He was a terrific man and I liked him from the moment he first reached out to me. He knew I needed him so he offered his friendship and guidance. Charles
