What's Irn Bru? I never heard of it :) I really love fruitshakes/smooths. ( well, tea is the big favourite, but I already told that somewhere in this topic) .

Irn Bru is a beverage they produce and sell predominantly in Scotland. It has a really unhealthy colour and taste, but I like it a lot. I have no idea what they actually put in there but it tastes like nothing you would usually come across. It's sparkling and falls under the category of soft drinks. I think you just have to try it. Whenever you get to Scotland, it's not hard to find, they are rather proud of it from what I've heard :wink:

This is what it looks like.

Didnt they used to have irn bru bars as well? I seem to remember kids in school being absolutely obsessed with them....

Yep, they did. I got my first one in a bar somewhere in the middle of no-where (those Scots build their bars in all sorts of unlikely places :wink:). I and my brother were still too young to drink beer, so the owner proudly handed us two cans of Irn Bru, telling us that this was one of Scotlands best inventions (or something the like of it). He was a really funny old man.

I remember the old chap only because of that, otherwise I might already have forgotten, sorry but true. I'll see if I can find a picture, I'm sure my dad took one.

I had no idea such a thing as flower teas existed, I've never seen one here. They look so beautiful I'd be afraid to drink it and destroy the picture.

When you pour the water on the tea-ball, it becomes more beautiful, as it opens into an amazing "flower"... So don't be afraid :)

Can you re-use it? I mean, after it dried again? My mum got a Rose of Jericho once and those flowers remind me of it. It's one of the most interesting plants I've come across so far.

I have many favourite drinks... :D But my favourite is water!

Water - during the day
Milk - in the morning - breakfast
Tea - late evening
Cola - when I'm sick

Just what i was thinking- i've never heard of/ seen such a thing! It looks beauuuutiful- if it tastes as yummy, i'm surprised they're not more popular than normal tea!!

They taste... mmm... yummy! :D as they are made from the leaves of the highest quality (so-called tips)... 8)

Anyway, I must take a photo of one heart-shaped which carries white and pink flowers inside which bloom after 3 minutes into a bouquet :D
