Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
A good hot cup of tea, boiled in the pot over a campfire in the snow when the air temperature is -15F and then sweetened with brown sugar and a touch of rum is a gift of God. Of course, hot water is also...so is any source of heat (a nice warm body is good).
I was bartending a party once when one of the guests asked for gin-and-tea, which "everyone in England was drinking." We made a pot of tea, poured out a cup, added gin, and created a drink so puckery it would suck you inside your own mouth. It was still sitting there, nearly untouched, when the party was over. I sorta suspect that the guest mistook people asking for "gin and Tonic"....
