my favourite tea is irish breakfast, a black leaf blend of ceylon and assam indian teas, high in caffeine. i am a tea zealot. i belong to an international tea swap and we exchange teas of all types. through the teaswap iíve discovered chinese white, lemon ceylon, milk tea and a variety of black, green and herbal teas. tea reminds me that the world is an endless source of variety, from earth to sky. even the lowly mushroom has several varieties from poison to hallucinogenic. sometimes i wonder how i could ever be bored. today i savour the splendid varietea.
