I am a tea drinker....never coffee
Usually Bushells tea.....but because I am now not in Australia it is almost impossible to procure......and I am stuck with drinking .....Liptons (yuk)
The locals have become used to me calling for a "cuppa".....they now know that this means a cup of tea.
It must be hot......(semi warm tea is akin to dishwater)....and it must be allowed to steep for a few minutes......with just a tiny amount of milk added.
The holy grail of tea...?...
The Aboriginal Australians drank an infusion from the plant species leptospermum (a different plant from the tea plant or camellia sinensis). Upon landing in Australia for the first time, Captain Cook noticed the aboriginal peoples drinking it and called it tea. Today the plant is referred to as the "ti tree"
....and my chances of finding that over here are zero.
In northern new south wales there is a tea called "madura' produced.....around the tweed river valley.......I would almost part with an arm for a container of that right now !!
ok....enuff of that....I need a cuppa
Condobloke ...Outback Australian fed up with Windows antics...??....LINUX IS THE ANSWER....I USE LINUX MINT 18.3 EXCLUSIVELY.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
