Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
I have one of those "plunger" things here. I think it was meant for coffee, but it could work for tea.

I wouldn't EVER pollute my tea with milk.

If you find a good variety of Earl Grey it's quite nice. Market Spice in Seattle has some good stuff.

A good cup of tea is as much a state of mind and a ceremony as it is a simple beverage. The anticipation, coupled with the proper preparation (the water HAS to be almost boiling and the tea strong enough and the addition of a bit of sweetener is optional) means that the first good-sized sip can be enough to align your whole psyche for the morning.
