A Jew might just say “bite me.” A Muslim might kill you.
Actually, none of my friends have asked me stuff like that. We respect each other.]]>
If they asked me nice, I might still tell them to mind their own business.]]>
I’ve seen herbal tea sold at the Washington D.C. Temple cafeteria.
Also, type “herbal tea” into the search option at LDS.org. There are a few talks that will pop up in which the speaker admits to drinking it as if everybody does.
As I understand it, tea made with the actual tea leaf (there is a difference) is what is banned. Tea Leaf, otherwise known as camellia sinensis, is found in black, white, green, earl grey, darjeeling, etc…teas. Other types of tea, such as herbal teas, are fine in that they don’t contain that tea leaf.
But, to really screw things up, I served a mission in Japan. We were forbidden to drink Green Tea. My brother served in Korea. He was permitted to drink it. Who knows?
Personnally, I find Rooibus tea, or red tea, from South Africa to be really nice.]]>
Once when I was a kid and we visited my grandma, who was a 7th Day Adventist, she offered me coke and I didn’t turn it down. I felt guilty for years for drinking that coke.
And it does taste gross. Just like coffee and alcohol and cigarettes do.]]>
