Storm in a Third Party Teapot

I am sorry to hear that Gary Johnson is quitting the GOP race and is instead becoming a Libertarian candidate. [Editor's note: It looks that the Pagans are happy with the news... :twisted: ]


Johnson says bye to GOP, seeks Libertarian nomination

In other news: Tea Party Republican Ken Sorenson is leaving Michele Bachmann for Ron Paul. Here is Simon Conway‘s take on this switch

So, we are left with a candidate who is not drinking tea?!  :cry:

Tea News and Cricket

Do you enjoy watching cricket? Isn’t the best thing with cricket, the tea break? ;-) From the post, Sachin smells tea and wakes up, but high doesn’t last the day:

Before tea, Tendulkar had looked edgy and uncomfortable. … Something in Tendulkar’s tea seemed to remove all the uncertainty from his game.

Butter Tea

This post is by Linus Hammarstrand:

There are many things you can do with tea; there are also many things you never should do. Mixing tea with, say, ketchup, or with gravel, are patently bad ideas. The same goes, tastewise, for the butter-tea, so beloved by the Tibetans. Most Tibetans, particularly the nomads, can drink up to 20 cups of this vile brew in any given day. It is made in a huge copper kettle, by mixing brick-tea with boiling water and then adding rancid yak-butter and salt to the brew. They often also mix it with tsampa, roasted barley flour and roll the mixture into little balls in their hands.

As a guest it is extremely impolite to decline a hearty cup of butter-tea. One cup is typically bad enough, but the problem is that your host will refill your cup, again and again, even after you have only taken a sip. When this happens, it is best to drink it straight away, when it is still warm. There is only one thing worse than warm butter-tea; cold butter-tea!
