Nice rant,Zed. While I still won't touch tea made the anglo way, I have developed a real fondness for chai, and now have to remember not to impose on my Indian friends kindness by asking for it at every opportunity.

Coffee, coffee everywhere and never a drop to drink.
I plan to start the Tea Drinkers Liberation Front. First up against the wall will be the heretics at conferences who take an urn, which was used for coffee yesterday, rinse it once and fill it with "hot" water for tea. BLEAH!
Next to go will be the waiters who bring you a little tin teapot and don't tell you that they have hidden the teabag behind it instead of putting it inside. That way by the time you think the tea has steeped it's too late to start.

TEA DRINKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!
Rebel against the coffee conspiracy.
LEAVES NOT BEANS!

pardon me, I need to go have a cuppa and a lie-down.




Tea is very nice
It is probably
too good
for me

Mmmm. A rich cup of coffee in the morning gets the day started off well. I prefer the rounder-tasting coffees to the acidic varieties.


Father Steve, a good white chocolate is made from cocoa butter, a rich butter extracted from the cocoa beans when they are processed to get the chocolate liqueur. Since the product does come from the cocoa bean, I’m not sure how we can object to the name.

Unless you’re talking about those white pretend things, that have no cocoa butter in them at all (or the cocoa butter is dead last on the ingredient list), then, I agree that it can’t be called white chocolate. The name we have to use here is “confectionary”. Even that word is too pretty for that cr*p.

P.S. Have you ever visited a chocolate processor when they are roasting the beans…oh my god but it can put you off of your lunch. Imagine a sweating person who’s been exercising every day, hasn’t washed in four or five weeks and is standing in scorching sun, with a winter coat and scarf. That’s the smell.

Whenever we have somebody visit the plant, we make sure that we are not roasting beans when they come to visit. On non-roasting days though, the whole city smells of rich, warm chocolate – heavenly!

I was once a part of a community access TV show that did spoofs of everything we could think of. We did a spoof of the spring-the-cheap-brand-coffee-on-the-patrons-of-the-fancy-restaurant commercial one time, getting the customers to agree that it was excellent tasting coffee only to tell them it was made from recycled cat litter. That was before we heard of kopi luwak.
