    I prefer tea brewed in a teapot from loose tealeaves, but right now we don't have any loose tea or a teapot so I just put the teabag in the mug, pour hot water over it and let it stand for a few minutes.
    I like my tea strong.

    Although I opened a Coffee Shop in the Pantheist Forum I'm also quite keen on tea too!

    And, as Spiral said, it would be bad manners not return your visit to our establishment!

    I laughed out loud when I read this:

    I have to remember to read up on it closer and not just listen to when my husband goes of on little rants.
    ...but don't tell him!

    I drink a few cups of Macha Japanese Green Tea a day, love it, not to mention the health benefit. My favorite loose leaf tea place closed, PS Teas, do you have another great place to order from that I should try?

    I'm equally addicted to both tea and coffee... very early morning and evenings I prefer tea, I like cappuccinos in the morning and strong black coffee for the middle of the day.

    Oh... I think he laughed out loud when he read it too.

    Ah... yes. The health benefits of green tea especially is amazing.
    Right now I'm a bit of a lazy one and I'm drinking Lipton Green Tea. My favorite green tea was given to me from a friend of my husband a couple of years ago, but it was imported from Japan and expensive! I haven't been able to get my hands on it again.

    Working out is fun!
    I haven't been able to hit the gym this week, though, because I was super busy with school. In four days, I had four papers due as well as a midterm exam to write. I didn't get enough sleep all week, and I'm still exhausted today, even after 9 hours sleep and three cups of tea... But hopefully I'll make it tomorrow!

    I braved the 30 degrees Celsius+ garage turned gym today for a 25 minute interval cardio session this morning even though I was exhausted...
    I cranked up Bon Jovi's album "Slippery When Wet" and worked up a nice sweat and an appetite despite the fact that I can barely eat when it's above 29 degrees warm. It left me happy and feeling good the rest of the day.

    Yeah, I definitely notice my moods are a lot more pleasant when I work out several times a week.
    Yay, now I'm excited to go tomorrow!
    What sort of machine do you use for your cardio? I find I like the Arc Trainers best, and I despise the treadmill. haha. Most of all I like jogging through nature trails! But I like lifting weights far more than doing cardio.

    I prefer the treadmill, and lifting weights.
    I used to hate running, but intervals work wonders for me and I really enjoy it.

    I haven't worked out for a couple of weeks now, I've had my hands full with other things, and broke one toe and then got a cold. I'm hoping to be back at it tomorrow though.

    Oh, I'm going to finish this coffee and then make a cup of tea.

    The tea we are having at this particular time is my mix of:

    Black peppermint.
    Beebalm
    Lemon Balm
    Green Tea
    Ginseng
    Yarrow
    Black Berries.

    All except the ginseng and green is from my gardens.

    One of my cold season mixes.
