Boil water for tea you say?

For the most part I do not drink tea on a regular basis per se. I usually drink coffee (which I'm Jonesing for really bad right now.) But in the past I have under certain circumstances brewed up some tea to take the chill off. Especially back in the days when I spent a lot of time backpacking and exploring the wilds.

Looking at the list of options I will admit to using the following at one time or another:

  • Campfire. Of course. When in the Great Outdoors&tm; this is a no-brainer. I realize some folks nowadays don't do that and use some new fangled gadget to boil water, but I'm and old school outdoorsman. Thought I haven't slept on the ground in about two decades. Getting too old for that sh*t.
  • Exhaust manifold on a {car|truck|motorcycle|Mike-8 boat}
  • Coleman camp stove
  • blow torch. (Nothing to do with being in the woods.. more of a prank)
  • and at home in a proper tea kettle:
  • electric stove
  • gas stove

I am horribly addicted to ice tea. I would have never bought this for myself but a friend of mine gave me a Mr. Coffee™ iced tea maker. That gets fired up all the time, especially when my mint is growing, to make iced tea.

Somehow I never developed a taste for hot tea.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
