Trader Joes harvest tea is so good I may go back for more! That, and I forgot their tea tree soap i like.
It's hibiscus with cinnamon, ginger and apple. Surprisingly rich tasting. It's seasonal, I wish i knew what company makes it- sound familiar to anyone o_O?

The "next big thing" is without a doubt mead (not suitable for vegans... wine made by fermenting honey)... I'm just pondering if the formula to figure out the calories in beer also applies to mead, and other wine for that matter. This one is made with blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries and is quite delicious. I'm tempted to have another glass, but calories that come along with being 13.5% ABV, yikes!

Mostly in the week it's tea (builders' tea from Tesco or wherever). I do like good strong coffee too (none of your latte milarky) and it's all good and cheap in Spain. At the weekend I also have Rioja or Ribera del Duero: both are 13.5% but I don't drink a lot. I don't believe that water's healthy really, it's the very essence of bland. But I will drink water in very hot weather.

Lots of tea. I have a sore throat and it's helping it a bit.
Try this for the throat: juice of half a lemon, large tsp honey, 1 shot of whiskey and a little water. Go easy on the water! My mum used to give me this when I was still at primary school! And suck the honey of a teaspoon just dipped in it whenever you need it. Are vegans allowed honey? My friend Fernando swears he is kind to his bees, so I think mine is OK. The Vegan Soc say "Honey is the honey bees’ single source of food and essential nutrients during poorer weather and the winter months." Here in Malaga province we don't have winter, honestly. We go straight from autumn to spring. The oranges are in fruit now and in December and in early January the almond blossom is already on the trees.

Thank you! I don't eat honey, but I suppose I could try agave syrup :). That actually sounds pretty good, even without a sore throat, hehe.

I went to a restaurant on New Year's Eve with friends, and the staff were giving out (very small) samples of tequila. I passed on it, mostly because I didn't see the point of wasting the little plastic thing the samples were served in. But at the end of the evening, one sample someone hadn't drunk was on the table. I sniffed at it, and my nose promptly said "WHOA!! NASTY!.... DO! NOT! DRINK! THAT!" I perversely took another whiff and my nose started screaming at me again. I would have liked to satisfy my curiosity- I think I only had one sip of Southern Comfort once, and it was memorably foul-tasting.

But.... [cue Lynyrd Skynyrd] oo-oooooo, that smell...[/L.S.]

Why is honey not vegan?
