Rum Tea in the Himalayas

This post is written by Linus Hammarstrand:

Aside from Lemon Tea, Nepali Tea, Chai and the infamous butter tea, the inhabitants of the Himalayas frequently mix their tea with various other drinks. One of the more popular ones in the Nepali Himalayas is Rum Tea, where you mix the national favorite, Khukri Rum with black tea and add a few tea spoons of sugar for good measure.

Needless to say, this is a potent brew and not to be recommended for high altitude, although a good reward after a grueling trek or climb! Kick back with your local Gurung, Tamang or Sherpa friends and give yourself a warm treat!

Book by Tea Party Patriots

Have you read Tea Party Patriots: The Second American Revolution by Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin? Here is an excerpt from Wendy Milling’s book review [Hat tip to Harry Binswanger List, April 18]:

The Patriots seek to model their organization on the open source concept, and they request that readers contribute ideas for the pathways to liberty on the Tea Party Patriots’ web site. The best ideas will be incorporated into their agenda and their next book. They explain that as an organization, the Tea Party Patriots only supports a solution when the overwhelming majority of its polled members agree.

My solicited advice would be to make individual rights the organizing principle of the movement. The core values are excellent, and the Patriots generally use “liberty” as the rationale for their positions. However, it is ultimately impossible to remain consistent without using the concept of individual rights as the standard by which ideas are evaluated. Individual rights is more fundamental, and what we normally mean by freedom cannot be defined except by reference to it.

By the way: Do you think that Barack Obama is using a silver tea spoon nowadays?

The president’s campaign would like you to think Romney was born with silver tea, soup, demitasse, grapefruit, and runcible spoons—not to mention that funny silver ladle we use just on Thanksgiving—in his mouth.

Lemon Tea in the Himalayas

This post is written by Linus Hammarstrand:

Nepal is home to some of the tallest peaks on the face of the planet, including Mount Everest, Makalu and Annapurna. Aside from being a destination for hardcore climbers, Nepal is also a paradise for trekkers of all kinds and stripes but no matter how much I would like to include myself in the former category, I am firmly rooted in the later. Trekking is typically hard work, even when doing the so-called easy ones, as Nepal is a very hilly country indeed. After a long day of sweat, blisters and insect bites (or frostbite if you are at a really high altitude), the thing to really look forward to is a cup of hot Lemon Tea.

This is typically made from one part lemon juice, a few spoonfuls of sugar and whatever bag tea that is available. It is not for the aficionado, but it is a well-deserved treat at the end of a grueling of day of hard work!
