Haha, who knew he was so opinionated and stubborn about his tea? He had some pretty good points, but I thought it was hilarious that he only thought Indian and Ceylon tea was worth drinking. Chinese tea was at least economical, but Japanese tea wasn’t even good enough to be mentioned!

If there was a Steepster in 1946, George would have been a member.

@ George1984, the whole business has become even more subtilized now in 2011. You will love all the steeping accoutrment that will allow you to decant perfect, unbitter tea.
