I love tea. So very much. This place is a doorway to heaven
What kind of teas do you like?

I meant extended family. Which in my case is very large on both sides. Picture, if you will, 5 aunts and uncles on both sides. Now imagine most of those relatives branching into 2-3 cousins. Now attach spouses and/or families to pretty close to all of those. Now add a few more tiers on that by including some Granduncles and Grandaunts and all of their family trees. Then give everybody summer vacations time.
As a person who in general just wants to sit in my comfy chair, drink tea, read comics, and trashy novels this presents certain problems.
Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if I could stand the sight of a bored kid but I just can't do that. I feel compelled to entertain them as best I can. Resulting in lots of hiking, trampoline jumping, and whatever nonsensical sporting activities I can talk them into.

Their teaweare : omaigosh. Love the Asian teapots. I drink just about everything, except black tea, since it's not good for my teeth. So what's your fave flavour?
I tend to favor black teas actually, there is the teeth staining to worry about but if that's the price I'll eventually have to pay...so be it.
With hot tea my favorite is a Chinese black tea called Black Dragon Pearls. The flavor and smoothness of that is fantastic. With ice tea my favorite is another black tea, this one from Sri Lanka, that's called Ceylon Sonata. It's mild and has a natural sweetness to it that makes a wonderful glass of iced tea (and as an added bonus is fairly cheap).
In terms of non-Black tea's I'd probably go with a white tea over greens or herbals. Even though those tend to be a little on the mild side they're tend not to be very never grassy or perfume-y; which I tend to have a hard time with. Silver Needle and White Symphony are probably my favorites among the white tea's I've tried.

Yeah, I suppose I shouldn't complain but 4-5 weeks seems like a looong time to gaze longingly at one's beloved tea cup, bookshelf, and reading chair.

I think Toriyama's art is well suited to his characters and stories.
Yeah, and I think most would agree with you on that.
It's a very lighthearted cartoony look and for a lot of people I think it carries a certain charm. It's just not for me though. The deformed head thing, where the head is extremely large and round relative to the body and all the limbs being short is something I just personally don't like.
