Best website to buy tea?

your tea recommendation was excellent-
I wish I could afford more of the Makaibari-
The Harney's was decent.
I also purchased Darjeeling First Flushes from Upton Tea which were of lesser quality and cheaper.
I was also able to sample second flushes and autumnal Darjeelings.
I am not a tea expert but enjoy a properly prepared cup of tea.
later this week I am going to place a small order from silvertips

Suggestions for December 2014 Cheese of the Month

In doing a google search I found a good reference
Hispanic Cheese Reference Guide which has over 70 cheeses from the areas. I was surprised by the number of cheeses.
The guide is adapted from one originally prepared by Jim Path, a now-retired cheese outreach specialist with the Wisconsin Center for Dairy Research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
I am starting to read the guide.

Thaw Turkey – Cold Water Method?

I have used this method several times without any problems.

"Adding tap every 30 minutes raises the water temperature back to tap temperature, which is low enough to keep bacterial growth at bay."

Hi From Marssy, Chowhound CM

I feel comfortable with telling ppl about myself-
I have no problem telling you about myself,family,educational background, religion-some of it is in profile-other info is in posts in threads and boards I frequent.
IIMHO most info adds a more human touch- not just comments
what would you like to know?

Hi From Marssy, Chowhound CM

Happy that you finally said hi.

"I try to use my instinct, although I’m looking forward to learning better techniques and increasing my cooking and food knowledge on Chowhound."

I thought Community Manager would have more knowledge, background, and expertise in food, nutrition, travel,etc.

Tell us more about yourself and how you will help the site as far as your future vision of Chowhound.

Do you have a family? Where do you live? What is your educational background?
