I am a tea snob. i love it, study it and have tried teas from near every company and know the best of the best. but when people offer me lipton hot tea, i get a little displeased. like all true tea drinkers, i think coffee is something that people with no taste buds drink :lol: :tape: i know it makes me a tea snob. :sad:

but i was wondering are YOU a snob? if some about anything if so what?

what are you a snob about?

i like being a tea snob. but i am a snob about education, and i dont like that. i know that i do think (a little) less of adults who didnt graduate from a private 4 year college at least 125 years old. i try not to do it but i cant seem to stop.

all "true" teas. that is tea made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. but there are herbal teas made from other plants, that are not "true" teas and all of them are caffeine free.

I'm snobbish about my coffeehouses. :p Cannot stand chains because they take away from the charm that locally-owned coffeehouses have. Plus the employees tend to be jerks. :ras: Plus only locals make better chai. :drool:

I'm a snob about certain things not everything, it just that there are lots of certain things that I'm a snob about ;) Public transport is one, I will use it sparingly, never a bus, only a taxi if needs must, planes are ok I suppose and on v rare occasions trains. I prefer to walk or drive myself :)

I'm a snob about supermarkets, I hate using Asda, Iceland, Morrisons etc, prefer Tescos, M & S and Sainsburys even though they are not necessarily better or cheaper. I actually go out of my way and take a longer time shopping in order to shop at the supermarkets I like :D

I hate buying anything "own-brand", I like using trusted labels that I've used before and know they work. When I have steak I make sure I'm having fillet (and no other piece of the cow ;) ) and would much rather have some Aberdeen Angus meat cos it's among the best beef in the world, certainly the best of British beef anyway...

Oh and I'm a snob about certain cities (which shall remain nameless so that I don't offend anyone! :p ;) ) and about the education level of people...also accents I'm a bit of a snob about too but that's linked into me being snobby about certain cities :tape:

There are a few more but I can't think of them right now...;)

I hate snobbery, but I think there is also a little bit of it in all of us ;)

I admit to being a massive snob about Italian food. It has to be authentic and freshly cooked or you don't get me eating it (blame my Italian father, God bless him :kiss: ).

In supermarkets I curl my lip at all those disgusting looking (and no doubt even more disgusting tasting) pasta sauces in jars. I will have to be ga ga and spoon fed in the Happy Valley Home for the Bewildered before any of that stuff ever slides down my throat!

I also hate pizzas that have anything more than traditional toppings on them. Why do we have to have crispy duck pizzas? And fucking pineapple chunks for god's sake? :fiery:

Other than that, I hope I'm pretty easy going :lol:

I'm a:

Food snob. Big food snob.
Clothes snob. Even though I can't afford to be a clothes snob.
Hygeine snob. I freak the fuck out whenever I see something dirty and have to clean it, if I'm going to be eating off it or pissing in it, etc. etc.

I'm a snob on a lot of things.

Is it being a washing up snob if you take other peoples' items out of the drying rack because they're not quite clean, and put them back in the dirty pile for someone else to have a second attempt at washing up properly?

Or is it just good hygiene?

I used to be a wine snob, drank nothing but world-class reds from great years, and belonged to the ABC club- you know, the "Anything But Chardonnay" set. I've since learned to open both my mind and my palet, and enjoy exploring different kinds of wines from all over the world. The wine that did the trick for me was a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough district.

lol, i am learning to taste wine. there is soooo much info to take in.

there is with tea too, but since there is only one tea plant, you dont have to worry, like you do learning about the different grapes. and there are only a handful of quality regions that this one plant can grow in. theres less to take in about that and more about different brews flavors and unique combos.

:lol: for me? not bloody likely. not likely at all. plus thats not really snobbery so much as arrogance.

the difference i think is that with snobbery you know what you know, and you use that to make decisions that you feel are superior than others decisions. for example, getting select super high grade full leaf white silver needle tea from a seller that buys direct from the farmer. so you feel you make better decisions. yes that might mean you know more than someone who drinks lipton hot tea, but, it starts with looking at a decision, the decision to drink only the best.

being arrogant is thinking you know more than others without ANY basis for knowing what they know and who they are. its pretty arrogant to say you might know more about history than a ph.d. in america history without even knowing who they are. so being arrogant starts with a LACK of information, good snobbery starts with an abundance of information. my 2cents

It depends upon my mood of the moment..I can,I really can be snob about my attitude with the others when I feel like beeing mean and anthipatic :retard: (it happens less and less,fortunately) I can be very snob about the way I eat, drink, the hygiene or with the adults

But I think and hope I'm not that much generally,I'm a pretty cool and relaxed guy who takes thing slow :cool:

I do that too, except I don't leave it for someone else to have a 2nd attempt I just go ahead and do it myself. Honestly, some people think a bit of cold water splashed on a pan will do for cleaning it :crazy:
