Q: What kind of tea do you drink?

Coffee is still way too expensive, just like how the CCTV says. I'm drinking jasmine now, but I'll be interested in any suggestions. What is this tie kuan yum?

None, my secret stash of Tetley Tea was destroyed by Gfs new dog, she was afraid to tell me, so I didn't bring any. I'm drinking crap instant coffee with Baileys, lots and lots of Baileys. I bought some Chinese teas, funny for a land that should be known for tea, I don't like them.

A friend of mine recently gave me some chrysanthemum tea (菊花) from his home province, Hunan, and it was really good. I also really like Pu'er (普洱). I also drink a lot of Rooibos tea from South Africa but you can't get that here.

Green or Pu'er mostly. Whatever is in the kitchen closet, as long as I can have it without stuff floating around in the cup.

I drink a couple of cups of Tulsi tea from India.  It calms me down and gives me a bit of energy without the caffeine.  Sometimes I enjoy a cup of red rooibos tea from Africa that is a non-diuretic with a great earthy smell.  It also has no caffeine.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
