Steph Walford: Black coffee please no sugar ta mushly Mia x Aug 8, 2019 9:51:59 GMT
PhotoJim: Darjeeling for me. or Yorkshire Gold. that's good stuff too. Aug 8, 2019 16:41:09 GMT
jejemunk: I'd like a nice cup of oolong to accompany my studying tonight Aug 9, 2019 2:53:23 GMT
gilly: All this talk of tea is making me thirsty! (rofl) Off to put the kettle on...... Aug 9, 2019 11:53:11 GMT
although: dang, MB rollerball refills sure are expensive! guess that is to be expected :) Aug 10, 2019 15:48:02 GMT
allanorn: try those from Monteverde Aug 10, 2019 17:59:07 GMT
radellaf: stick the tip in .5 or so mL of ink in the bottom of a sample vial. If it's not dried out too much it'll absorb the ink through the tip. Add more ink if it sucks it all up. Aug 11, 2019 18:27:52 GMT
although: I actually tried refilling the old one with a syringe. You can pop the back right off the refill. It worked, but it wasn't as smooth. I suspect that the proper rollerball ink has some lubricating qualities that fountain pen ink doesn't have... Aug 12, 2019 2:21:04 GMT
Steph Walford: Had a peppermint tea last night as have had a really sore and upset tummy.... no sickness etc just really painful and burping :( Aug 12, 2019 17:39:37 GMT
gbryal: I've been drinking Yaupon Holly tea. Aug 13, 2019 2:41:55 GMT
gbryal: I also tried the Wiccan Women's Brew but I found it kind of bland. Aug 13, 2019 2:42:29 GMT
gbryal: You can just put Yaupon in a tea ball, but it's more fun to drink out of a gourd with a bombilla, like Yerba Mate. Aug 13, 2019 2:48:13 GMT
Mia: I have been using my froggy and ducky tea infusers. Aug 13, 2019 23:54:31 GMT
Mia: however, will I be able to sleep as I've had all that black tea? Aug 13, 2019 23:54:50 GMT
although: you probably would have been okay if you had only used the ducky... Aug 15, 2019 0:21:18 GMT
Mia: :tealetter: Aug 15, 2019 18:08:10 GMT
PhotoJim: I've tried to drink yerba mate out of a gourd, but it gets so bitter for me. it was fun. but I just don't like it after more than a few minutes. Aug 17, 2019 23:16:29 GMT
PhotoJim: I think the secret is to not be a supertaster :) Aug 17, 2019 23:16:35 GMT
