Today, it's the classic and a nice mug of (black) Chinese tea.

Could do, if the coffee was hot enough and the SAK was submerged for long enough.

Are you gonna try something? :D

A newly-acquired Compact mod and some Trader Joe's tea.

First impression of the tea is that it isn't very good; about Lipton Yellow Label caliber. I'll try next time with 3 tea bags instead of two for that 0.75 qt. / 0.7 L pot.

Jeremy, beautiful pic!  Try Barry's Irish Gold tea.  Great tea with heart....costs a wee bit more but worth it every time you take a sip!

Yes the Walker is a really handy and usable knife.
I'm glad Victorinox put it back in production.

Jeremy, beautiful pic!  Try Barry's Irish Gold tea.  Great tea with heart....costs a wee bit more but worth it every time you take a sip!

I'll keep an eye out for it. Where do you get yours?

That Trader Joe's "English Breakfast Tea" is terrible. I can't imagine any self-respecting Englishman drinking it. Today's pot (with three bags) was worse than yesterday's. Worse than the cheapest Lipton. (which is actually not bad, when steeped in properly hot water...)

I think I'm going to leave it in the "please take me" area at work.

Life's too short for bad tea.

Jeremy, you can usually find it in with the gourmet teas at Wegman's or the bigger grocery store chains.  I understand what you are saying...I've left some of the more miserable brands at work for the victims to consume!  They also have a website at www.barrystea.ie.  It's phenomenal tea!  If you can't find it, pm me and I'll get a box to you!

Life's too short for bad tea.

3 bags!!!!!

Over here we mostly just drink PG's or supermarket own brand, all of which give a great cuppa with only one bag.

For an amusing take on the difference between UK and US tea habits, check out TUSA by 'Masters of Reality' (my work pc won't let me post a youtube link, so if anyone else could oblige we can hear Ginger 'better drummer than a human being' Baker talking about Tea in the US)
