My buddies dad came to deer camp this year. He is in his 80s, combat marine from Korea. About Wednesday he announced we needed tea after hunting to warm us up so I joined him. My son rolled his eyes and mentioned a past member of our group (a bourbon drinker) who would have lost his mind seeing us sipping tea. I myself like tea and every few months take a break from coffee and drink it exclusively.
tea is mostly for crap, but that dang Lapsang souchong smoky tasting tea ain't bad
A man of impeccable taste!
I got hooked on hot black tea with cream and a bit of sugar in my late teens/early 20's. Seems like it was right about the time of that famous party in Boston Harbor...
Then, I switched to coffee when my fellow coppers on midnight shift decided that tea drinkers should pick up the tab.
Found Lapsang Souchong when at a real Chinese restaurant in Anchorage and have loved it ever since.

Even the Maesteo Bach composed a cantata to the new beverage sweeping all of Europe!
Frederick the Great was not so pleased with the drink. It took revenue out of Prussia!!!! He was an advocate for beer. Wanted to outlaw it’s consumption. And stated that only a true and patriotic Prussian would ignore coffee and drink beer!
