@djjd62,
Is it sans tea leaf> I was reading one of the health threads and it said if you drink three cups of hibiscus tea a day it would lower your blood pressure 7-8 points.

@chai2,
If you wish you could take your tea up to our Japanese tea room on the second floor.

Yo Yo Ma is up there right now giving a private concert for our guests.


Or you could go out to our lovely rock garden and Buddhist temple...

Could we please move the rock in front of the smiley faced rock somewhat to the left, edging behind the whitish stone? now try in front...
(I know I'm obnoxious, but I've worked for and with two japanese garden designers for many years). Those I know play all the time. I wish I could remember an exact quote from one - something about it being a continual process.

@ossobuco,
I'd be surprised if they would choose those exact rocks.

Am I slamming a famous kyoto garden? A moment in space.

@ossobuco,
Rock selection can be an intense process, trust me. This looks like foo foo, never mind the smiley clue. Rocks should be of the place, and variation in that quells belief.
But back to tea.

@ossobuco,
I like just plain old tea tea at present.....Twining's Intense.

Gunpowder is way cool too.

I want a Devonshire Tea, actually...with real cream on the scones.

Is it true Americans say scone to rhyme with stone?

Yes. As opposed to ... scone pronounced as pop tart?

Plain black tea with no fancy names or flavours.

Will come back with my thoughts on brewing a good cup of tea.
