I'll look into it. So, I pulled some off the shelf, spoiled as I am, and have green pants on, and I look out back at the green pine trees, so I'm drinking in the green, and cooling the tea on my green lap, writing with the free green hand, green to save energy and utilize adaptability, and snow is melting off the roof, dripping down on the earth to make it green.

I got so green pumped that I had to go outside for a walk with the gogs, or dogs I mean, and I forgot to drink the tea, the green stuff. So, first thing I do when I get back is sit and drink tea, well actually I took off my sweaty clothes, cleaned off the gogs before that, took out the now fully saturated green tea bag, and drank the green, like in 3 gulps, three big green gulps. Ah, what was the question?
