I like drinking tea, too. Thanks for viewing and giving comments. By the way, which is the country that ranks the first in tea consumption per capita? A matter of interest only. Peter

This is a set of very high quality photographs. If I, under threat , would have to give priority I would choose Tea b) as a primus inter pares. When I scrolled down I heard myself murmeling "oh" for each picture

Van Morrison sings:

You can take all the tea in china
Put it in a big brown bag for me
Sail right around the seven oceans
Drop it straight into the deep blue sea


The bicycles

Burak'swebsiteis interesting. Thanks.Pu-erh is one of the favorite fermented teas we drink. I still remember when I was touring around in Istanbulmany many years ago that lots of people sold drinks on the street and I think some of these drinkswere actually the black tea. Again, thanks for the information on ranking. Keeping upthe good habit of tea drinking. Turkey depends on you to climb the ranking list, ha ha! Peter
