The Bahamas: It's Like a Sybaris for Rich People

Podcast 15: We somehow avoided a "Who Let The Dogs Out" joke

What: Arawak Chai (Bahama-Sol)
How much: $10/~6 oz at the Nassau Airport
What kind: Chai - Black tea ?
Taste: A peppery-cinnamon that won't make you feel like you're drinking Hot Tamales.
Repeat Drinkability: 2/10  (Either we go to the Bahamas or we find something that isn't meant for tourists.  Guess which one is easier.)
Manliness: 6/10  (Much like the KFC Famous bowls, sometimes men just like to throw everything in one pot and drink it.)

MOAR OOLONGS brought to you by a Mountain Taco and wax coated gum

Holy /T/sus is this the longest podcast yet? Maybe. Can you stand the sarcasm? Probably.  Anyway check out the last of the Mountain Taco (Tea co = Taco) sponsorship.

Podcast 12: MOAR OOLONGS

Ok men, it's time to play the MATCH GAME.  Can you spot the differences between these 2 pictures?! First one to name three differences in our comments section (or, hell, on Twitter) will get us as virtual wingmen for a weekend of your choice.

What: Premium LiSan Oolong (THE Mountain Tea Co.)
How much:$3.80/oz
What kind: Oolong
Taste: They say fruit, we say sweet/sour.  In the words of Vincent Masuka, "Bukkake, bukak-kay."
Repeat Drinkability: 4/10 (the sweet/sour duo was about as welcome in our tea as your fiance at your bachelor party)
Manliness: 4/10 (the emotion "delicate" was invoked in the podcast, not good)

What: Four Season Spring Oolong (WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!!) (THE Mountain Tea Co.)
How much: $2.20/oz
What kind: Oolong
Taste: Spring-time. For I-GOM. In shots of tea.
Repeat Drinkability: 5.5/10  (confusion about the name translated into confusion about drinkability)
Manliness: 7.5/10  (Confusion say "He who laughs loudest needs to trim his nose hairs.")
