咖啡或茶:The global rivalry of bean versus leaf

The British consume three times as much tea as coffee, despite an invasion by Starbucks. Americans quaff three times more coffee than tea. A gentleman is hardest pressed to find a cup of tea in Guatemala, where its superior Arabica is the drink of choice 99.6% of the time

採茶山歌 (奚淞,唐香燕)


.......又一天,奚淞來辦公室,把大家召攏說要教我們唱一首採茶山歌。他在白板上寫下歌詞,說你們看,是這樣的簡單又強烈,這樣的婉轉又直接:
茶葉青欸,水也清欸,清水燒茶,獻給心上的人~情人上崗你停一停欸,情人上崗你停一停欸,喝口清茶,表表我的心。上山的小路通到茶山頂,石頭都踩得亮晶晶,它送走多少風雨的夜晚,它迎接多少燦爛的黎明。我高聲的唱呀,低聲的問,我唱的採茶歌,你愛不愛聽?這歌聲像不像你家鄉的曲調?採茶女像不像你心愛的人?茶葉青欸,水也清欸,清水燒茶,獻給心上的人~

這是詩經,這是沈從文啊!奚淞說。字句這麼的簡單,但是一句一句把情感往前推,逼到緊了,忽又收回來說算了,老娘也不逼你了,來喝碗茶吧,都說到這裡了,再多說就沒意思了。這麼迴環往復,一下捏緊,一下放鬆的,又簡單,又不簡單......唐香燕"流光絮語----那一段Linda帶我走入的編輯歲月"http://mylightning.blogspot.tw/2016/09/linda.html

Twinings Tea Shop;「咖啡因可以逆轉失智?!


Over 300 years later, the original Twinings shop on the Strand is still in business.


A 300-year-old tea shop that brought tea to the English people, not to mention the Queen herself.

開箱文 我最愛ㄟ紅茶包!
週末持續工作的習慣,那麼多年了,沒有茶或咖啡好像都不會完全甦醒~
「咖啡因」依然是個好朋友!
可是攝取過量會對身體造成危害,近期我們希望針對市售飲品內含「咖啡因」的"量"要明確標示! 期待您也支持! 因為很多孩子、有喝飲料的朋友全然無從得知是否有過量的疑慮!
建議網路搜尋「咖啡因過量」相關關鍵字。
「咖啡因可以逆轉失智!
研究顯示,咖啡因可延遲阿茲海默症,甚至可預防血管性失智。」
咖啡因可以阻礙蛋白質斑塊在腦部形成,有助逆轉記憶缺損問題。
雖然如此,喝咖啡還是要適量喔!

回甘及其代價

「我說,人為什麼要喝茶?人活得好好的為什麼要喝茶?喔……到底是為了要回味兒。回什麼味兒?回甘甜的味兒,回甘甜和苦澀漸消的味兒,回養生和體驗的味兒,回悲歡離合喜怒哀樂的味兒,那……什麼樣的茶才叫好呢?」

回甘的代價

謝三泰【走拍台灣】專欄 2015-06-01 06:00


回甘的代價
品茗者一定極少知道採茶人的辛苦,她(他)們天剛亮就上工,一直到日正當中才收工,一天下來的工資僅區區的一、兩千元,恐怕連購買一斤茶葉的錢都不夠?
邊哼著小調邊採茶,偶而迎向涼爽的微風,讓辛苦不僅僅是為了三餐,也是為了廣大的消費市場及台灣的烏龍茶美名,那些流下的汗水,就是「回甘的代價」吧!

Tea or coffee: Which drink is better for you?

Overall verdict: Much as we Brits would have liked tea to come out the clear victor, we have to admit there is little between the two drinks besides personal taste. Based solely on the fact that it allows you to get a better night’s sleep, we declare tea the winner – but why not share your own thoughts with us through social media?
Caffeine dose is not the whole story.

蔣勳:阿寒山下有「蓊乃浵湖」Onneton 抹茶,

阿寒山下有「蓊乃浵湖」Onneton 是愛奴族語,意謂「老年湖沼」常年五色霧氣瀰漫。繞湖一圈,湖畔有老夫婦經營茶室,簡單樸素,供應登山者歇腳。我點抹茶,紅漆托盤,天青石綠配色,葛粉的茶點,天長地久,是這茶室在人間的虔敬供養吧。

cup o’ joe







MEDITATION FOR REAL LIFE

How to be Mindful With a Cup of Coffee
By DAVID GELLES

Take a mindful moment with your morning cup o’ joe.


cup of joe

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Of uncertain origin.
  • Possibly a shortening of "cup of jamoke", from java + mocha: this origin was given in a military officer's manual from 1931, around when the term first appeared.[1]
  • Alternatively, perhaps a use of joe ‎(fellow, guy), signifying that coffee was the drink of the common man.
  • Another theory suggests that US soldiers in World War I (1914-1918) referred to a serving of instant coffee made by the G. Washington Coffee Refining Company (founded in 1910) as a "cup of George", and that the common abbreviation of the name "George" ("Geo.") was then read as "Joe".[2]
  • Another theory derives the term from Josephus Daniels (1862-1948), the Secretary of the U.S. Navy who abolished the officers' wine mess and thus made coffee the strongest drink available on ships. Snopes considers this is unlikely because it says there is no attestation of the phrase "cup of joe" until 1930, 16 years after the 1914 order banning the wine mess.[3] Confusingly, some other sources consider the Daniels derivation unlikely for the opposite reason: they say "cup of joe" predates the order.[4][5]
A cup of coffee.

Noun[edit]

cup of joe ‎(plural cups of joe)
  1. (chiefly US, idiomatic) A cup of coffee [quotations ▼]
  2. (figuratively) One’s personal preference.
