Just voted and glad to do so. Such a great group of nominees as always, which makes it really hard to pick the most-deserving, when there is never a bad one in the bunch.

Yes, don't mess with the British. We'll throw our morning tea at you from atop our castles!
You know, talking of tea and the British, when I visited Boston last year, I learned that the type of tea that the Colonial terrorists...sorry, I mean the Sons of Liberty...threw into Boston harbour in 1773 was Bohea tea. I bought some Bohea while I was over there and, actually, it's delicious. One of my favourite teas that I've ever tasted, in fact.
Just as I've long suspected, the Boston Tea Party was a shameful waste of perfectly good tea.

Confessor ... Bohea Tea is delicious both HOT and COLD; and it's popular in America, British, and Japan. I had a friend that visited Japan and they have a name for it. It's called Houjicha and he made some for me and it's even more delicious when COLD.
