Precious, Precious S'Mores! GRRARRGH! Image :lol:

My pouch arrived last night. I tried some after lunch - one heaping teaspoon full, filled the cup with scalding water from the coffee machine, stirred, waited two minutes, decanted. Added just a touch of sweetener.

It's delicious (I'm not allowed to say "Yummy Tea" in this context, right? ;) ). It's a nice smoky Lapsang Souchong, and the flavors are subtle - they add to the taste without being overpowering or obnoxious. It's sort of the flip-side version of Aztec chocolate (mostly chocolate, but flavored with various herbs and some hot red pepper).

Thanks for the pointer, DinkyInky! This will make a nice change from dark-roast office coffee.
How cute!

And the tea is very yummy. I don't care what anyone says...it is.
Yanno how some people have Angels/Devils for a conscience? I have a Dark Elf ShadowKnight and a Half Elf Ranger for mine. The really bad part is when they agree on something.

So, once assembled- you can dip it in a strong tea solution and then run a strong electrical current through it...

ROFLMAO
That's how I really knit. Take one skein of pretty yarn, one E-Z pattern, one pair of E-Z start knitting needles.
Knit one, *tangle, swear* Purl none
Knit one, *tangle, swear* Purl none
Knit one, *tangle, swear* Purl none
Knit one, *tangle, swear* Purl none
Knit one, *WHAM!* knitting is done!
