So is Lipton the Prince Albert of teas? (Based on some of the above posts.). I used to drive by the old Lipton warehouse and docks in Galveston and think it was pretty exotic. Not that I want a box of it sent to me, of course.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Maybe. Simple and good with milk. The only thing I know against it is it is basically composed of the dust of higher grades of tea.

The only reason I suggested not including it in a pass is because I'd think everyone is familiar with it.

Yesterday at the mall, we wandered into a Teavana. The staff told us that sales were final, as Teavana is closing all of its shops.

Do we want to wait until after Christmas or shall we go forward now?

My daughter wrapped the tea I recently purchased. It is somewhere mixed in with all the other wrapped gifts. I won't have access to it until after Christmas.

Of course called her multiple names, Silly Daughter, Dipstick! and other appropriate titles.

May I suggest "Prolonger of Tea Possession?"
