I occasionally smoke a good cigar, but more often than not I smoke a hookah. I began smoking with a traditional pipe, like the one my great-grandfather smoked when I was a child. I'm a fan…Continue
Well now...If you for one are interested in rinsing out your mustache with something non-alcoholic (it does happen a times), I have found a wonderful listing of tea rooms and other tea vendors around the United States...perhaps other countries, I've been a bit lazy to do a deep search.http://greattearoomsofamerica.com/default.aspThis allows you to search for a tea supplier in your general area, I have found it to be VERY useful.Cheers!
I like that, If it is Scottish than I am sure it is a lot more fun than "walking and chewing gum"
I wonder if there is a similar word for that?...(has to be, I am sure of it).
I'm all for lunting, myself....yes, an obscure word meaning 'to walk and smoke a pipe'.Apparently of Scottish derivation.
Smokers are routinely regarded poorly in society and I believe that it stems from the chemicals that are added to the tobacco by the companies,
Back in the 20th century, I started smoking at the young age of 10 (11 with permission) I used to be a heavy smoker but have not smoked for years.
I turned from cigarettes to cigars and then to pipe, in fact I still have my Meerschaum pipe. I have always appreciated a quality cigar or the warmth a fine tobacco in my pipe.
Like a lot of things about the Victorian era (and Steampunk) is it is a much slower pace unlike the instant gratification and fast-paced living of today which the world seems to love.
I like the idea of being patient in all areas of my life and taking things more slowly and enjoy the moment which is what I feel the pipe does and I am sure the Hookah as well) (even tho I have never tried a Hookah)
I have always preferred a pipe. besides enjoying the moment, a good quality tobacco never leaves a bad taste or smell (unless it is smoked wrong) and as the pipe tobacco or quality cigar spreads its natural aroma around the room, it may be enjoyed by all.

A pipe tobacco blend known as TK-6 which was distributed by Lane Ltd was discontinued due to issues at Lane and their acquisition by another company. The good news is that TK-6 is now available again through a different distributor - hopefully your local tobacconist can locate it.
I prefer the modern style, never tried the cork
I believe a Mademoiselle Suzette Cherie had introduced herself here, but I do not see her post. Has it been excised?
Mr. Latham, do you prefer the old-school pipe stem in a tapered (cork) socket, or the more modern style? I tend to find the modern style a bit fragile. I like the idea of pulling the stem to clean the pipe thoroughly, thus prefer the older style.
