I do recommed one thing to add in the tea: Chinese wolfberry(medlar/Lycium barbarum). It's good for the eyes, expecially when you are in front of a screen a lot.

America is slowly—but surely—becoming a nation of tea drinkers

By Roberto A. Ferdman September 3

There's a quiet, and lightly caffeinated, trend brewing in America.

The U.S. market for tea has more than quadrupled during the past twenty-plus years—from just under $2 billion in 1990 to just over $10 billion last year—according to the U.S. Tea Association. Demand for the herbal beverage has now been growing at a healthy clip for decades. By weight, Americans now drink almost 20 percent more of the herbal beverage than they did back in 2000, according to market research firm Euromonitor.

Don't get too excited. Even the best western tea culture isn't a patch on Chinese tea culture. It's too hard to get worthwhile tea so it is hard to sustain. I stick to coffee here for that reason, but when in China I drink tea. As for additives do you have a source for this medical claim?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Yeah, so thanks for tea.

If you're interested in that old trade partnership we used to have going... you know, the opium thing ... you still have my number, right?

It's from the mass groups of the Japanese culture obsessed generation watching anime and drinking tea. It's taking over!!! Actually, its that and morseso the whole healthy food craze.

I recall seeing in the past, in a per populous basis, Ireland has the highest rates of tea consumption.

Not selling tea myself. Not much reason to get excited.

Source: verified by hundreds, maybe over a thousand years of Chinese medicine practice, enlisted on the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, human trial with positive effect at least on me.

I do recommend it yet it's solely at your discretion.

Edit: PS, on the Pharmacopoeia it is called Fructus Lycii.

No way. You should at least update your catalogue. Meth included will be the minimum requirement. If not, what am I going to use to treat HoC when he is in town ?
