I'd love to join you, but my intolerance of chocolate makes it hardly worth the trip. Do you think they would do toast and Marmite with my cup of tea?

I doubt that Marmite is readily available in Vienna...

Oh ye of little taste faith: Marmite in Wien :grin:

I don't know what to make of this old post though: Improved "Marmite" in Vienna - but it looks like it's been available there since 1920...

I could never remember the order. I knew it was vitally important to put one in before the other, so years ago I hit on a scheme whereby I put a bit of the milk in the mug, poured in the tea, then added the rest of the milk. I figured that way I got some of it right.

Cellmate wrote:... heat the water to 195-200 F.
Actually, now that you mention it, the nice lady at The House Of tea on Yonge Street told me the temperatures for all the different types of tea I was buying. It seemed like a lot of work to remember each temperature (degrees F and all) each time I wanted a cuppa.

I suspect that it's a bit like wine cognizants. If you're really into it, it's a lot of fun, but otherwise "let's have a glass with dinner, eh?".

My main thrust here is to avoid having to wipe spill-overs when I'm making tea of coffee at home.

Shouldn't "right at the end" be "close to the end of page 1"?
Also "bag"? BAG?

Thanks Rudi.
I did that.
Then I had to get up four times per night to pee.
So I took a sleeping tablet to help me get through the night.
Now I am awake again ...

It was a very week brew!

Truth is I have just had a goof-off week, taking a break from retirement, and prepping for my 5,000 Km tour of Newfoundland.
Read a lot of good books, but.
