What an absolutely lovely group! I'm mostly familiar with British tea tradition, but live to her about others. Cheers!

I joined your group some hours ago and just realized I failed to make a proper introduction. My name is Ada and tea is very much an interest. I am not what some would call an avid drinker, only once or twice a week most of the time (there are exceptions), but I find I know a lot less then I'd like. As a nurse/apothecary, my main interest is in remedies from tea, but any other information, such as tea rituals is also of interest to me. I thank you for sharing your information with me.

Sounds fun.  Where exactly are you?  I'm up in the San Fernando Valley, so to get to Costa Mesa I have to plan a day.

Good afternoon! My name is Russell and I am the manger of seventh tea bar in Costa Mesa. We are a new tea establishment with a steam punk feel. I would love for anyone interested to come in and check out our iced tea on tap or get a hot tea from our alpha demincha steam punk machine. I am also looking to host a steam punk tea party very soon so if you are interested let me know.

I know what you mean about the price of brass - I also have a MK II Martini-Henry.  20 rounds of Jameson brass runs about $50.00....  If you're crazy enough to buy ammunition, the price is typically $5.00 - $6.00. 

Comment by CoastConFan on May 29, 2013 at 8:20pm

Let me amend my statement upon reflection:  it is among the first 2,000 shipped, which probably took place in very early 1888, a few months after adoption in 1887.  I had to get up to look again at a reference.  I also have a very late Snider carbine in .577, (last year of production) but it was over cleaned many years ago.  Not a bad bore, but expensive to get brass since BELL stopped producing in Australia.
