Boil water for tea you say?

For the most part I do not drink tea on a regular basis per se. I usually drink coffee (which I'm Jonesing for really bad right now.) But in the past I have under certain circumstances brewed up some tea to take the chill off. Especially back in the days when I spent a lot of time backpacking and exploring the wilds.

Looking at the list of options I will admit to using the following at one time or another:

  • Campfire. Of course. When in the Great Outdoors&tm; this is a no-brainer. I realize some folks nowadays don't do that and use some new fangled gadget to boil water, but I'm and old school outdoorsman. Thought I haven't slept on the ground in about two decades. Getting too old for that sh*t.
  • Exhaust manifold on a {car|truck|motorcycle|Mike-8 boat}
  • Coleman camp stove
  • blow torch. (Nothing to do with being in the woods.. more of a prank)
  • and at home in a proper tea kettle:
  • electric stove
  • gas stove

I am horribly addicted to ice tea. I would have never bought this for myself but a friend of mine gave me a Mr. Coffee™ iced tea maker. That gets fired up all the time, especially when my mint is growing, to make iced tea.

Somehow I never developed a taste for hot tea.
