I’ll sign up for a chance at one of the 1st 2. Rooibos isn’t my thing.

I can’t put you into two drawings. That would be unfair to everyone else who will be in one drawing.

Cofftea said

Sorry I didn’t realize you could only be in one- I must have missed that. Can you define your definition of “pyrotechnic”? Unfortunately the one I’m not interested in is the one you were most descriptive w/ lol.

Cofftea said

Still curious about your definition of pyrotechnic. Are the 1st two comprised of a lot of blacks?

Doulton said

Cofftea, you are always too devoted to the literal for me while I am probably too devoted to the literary for you.

Pyrotechnic means like “fireworks”—exciting. Let me give you a dictionary definition:
py·ro·tech·nics (pr-tknks)
n. (used with a sing. verb)
1. The art of manufacturing or setting off fireworks. Also called pyrotechny.
2. A fireworks display.
3. A brilliant display, as of rhetoric or wit, or of virtuosity in the performing arts.

I was thinking of sense 3. Nabokov is a master of pyrotechnical language; puns; intriguing vocabulary; the unusual.

Yes, there would be black tea.
