When I read that, a picture of an orange popped into my head. It had horns and a little black goatee.

Did it have a wee little pitchfork?

They became the devil fruit when I was studying abroad in England. I was still a student so I spent school holidays at home and discovered, much to my horror, that while I was away they had bought a home in the middle of a 40 acre orange field.

Do you still live with your parents now? You didn't have any reactions did you while there?

Oh god no, I live in a different nation from my parents actually. I had reactions left, right, and centre when I lived there.

LOLZ, thanks my dear. I didn't leave because of that of course and they have since moved as well but I am simply ADORING my Canadian existence where there isn't a rutting orange tree for miles and miles!

I had been making teas professionally for 6 years, so I know my way around a teapot.

How did you get that gig? (!)

I have to admit to being a bit of a tea snob. I'm one of the aforementioned people for whom a good cuppa will solve anything. I can't survive the morning without one and drink at least three or four cups a day, usually more.

My top five are:

1) Earl Grey (Twinings of course, as it comes)
2) Russian Caravan (spot of trim milk)
3) Lapsang Souchong (milk)
4) Builder's (strong, with milk, here called "gumboot tea")
5) Darjeeling

Tea, for me, is a strictly black affair (though I'll admit green tea so long as it comes from a tea plant) and those herbal or fruity imposters, though infusions, aren't anything to do with tea. Can't really abide milk in Earl Grey either. As I said, a tea snob. It doesn't taste bad, but you can't appreciate the subtlety of Earl Grey with milk in it and might as well have some other tea.

Now, see, all tea just tastes of hot water to me.

Is this all tea you make or all tea in general? One spoon for each person and one for the pot, leave it for five minutes, and it certainly shouldn't taste like hot water. Try drinking some hot water for comparison

I can't stand milk at all. I always drink my tea and coffees black.

Infusions are so yummy. Especially with blackcurrent.

All teas taste of hot water. I've even made double strength tea and allowed it to soak for 10 minutes and it still tastes of hot water. Possibly I am without tea tastebuds?

I recently discovered this website. Lots of fun and the myspace keeps you informed of any tea companies giving away free samples
I had some rather nice Yorkshire Tea in the post the other day.
