Second the above, a Lavian Hot Cocoa option, maybe a Zaoncean Caramel Latte, Orrere Fruit teas, should all be available. I believe you can get some of them at Starbooks :lol:

Don't forget Mossfoot's "special" tea, while you're at it.. :wink:

Is that the one that requires 1t narcotics in the hold in order to brew properly?

No.. but it would require some liquor/wines..

Mind you, 1TC of booze ought to last one hell of a long time.. probably the rest of the Commander's life. :lol:

Assuming you drink about 1/2 litre of bourbon a day it should last about 6 years.

1/2 litre of bourbon a day is a LOT of tea..

And I don't go along with your assumption that 1TC equates to 1 metric tonne of alcohol. The sheer volume of a canister makes that highly unlikely.

An interesting discussion on that point begins here:

The TC is a fantasy unit used only to obfuscate discussions such as this. The unit used in the ship's manifest is t(on(ne)), and it is definitely the case that 1t = 1000kg = 1000000g.

Well, we all have our favourite handwavium to explain the highly illogical Ooniverse.. you stick to yours, and I'll stick to mine. :wink:

Yes, but if you drink half a litre of bourbon a day, then six years is a pretty good life expectancy. :)

None of which is an issue here, because this equipment is Tea-Total :D

In my estimation the sort of people who drink bourbon are the sort of people who would drink 1/2 litre a day. Perhaps my prejudices are showing. :mrgreen:

So, you're calling bourbon drinkers light-weights?
