Guebani isn't aa drug

here's the definition:a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body.

Gurbani is the highest medicine. And it effects your body and mind. The power of just saying the mool mantar is so strong that it can change your thinking.

I hope no one minds but I am having chaa now. Ahh relaxing. ..

Good for you.

Chaa is addictive no doubt but not in the same category as Panj Patey. So interesting choice Nihangs are making there!

I do not believe tea is harmful although studies on its impact on the body are inconclusive. I drink one cup a day of Indian tea made in the traditional way (changitraan ghaarke), not boiled dishwater known affectionately known as 'Gora chaa'. Anyways, it keeps me going for 24 hours.

If it's any consolation Bhai Rama Singh Ji used to also drink tea after the simran programmes in Hounslow, so there!

Anyone tried decaffeinated chaa?

Yes, Pg tips but didn't like th taste. Bit more expensive than the normal.

Here's how they take out the caffeine, from somebody's blogspot. I haven't put the link on as they may mind.

"Dear Sally,

Thank you for your email.

The solvent extraction process for decaffeination involves the tea leaves being 'washed' in a solvent that removes almost all of the caffeine. The tea leaves are then dried and packed in the ordinary fashion.

If steam treatment is used to remove the caffeine, it is inevitable that some of the other water soluble components will be removed at the same time, notably the water soluble antioxidant flavonoids which contribute to the taste and the leaves' antioxidant activity. We intend that the black tea leaf blend in PG Decaf provides you with a tea infusion that has the taste you would expect to find in cup of standard PG tips tea. Similarly, we intend that PG Decaf continues to give you a brew that is rich in antioxidant flavonoids. While taste is obviously a matter of personal preference, we know we could not make any claim about antioxidant flavonoids if the caffeine had been removed from the leaves using a water based steam treatment.

As I am sure that you will appreciate, the exact process carried out by PG is commercially sensitive but I do hope that this gives you a better understanding of the methodology and our reasoning.

Kind regards,

I then e-mailed back asking them which solvent was used in the process and the reply was as follows -

Dear Sally,

Thank you for your continued correspondence.

I can confirm that the the typical solvent of choice for PG tips is Dichloromethane.

If I can be of any further help or assistance, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

You guys don't know about the dangers of Chaa. It landed me in rehab for 2 months, I was at the point where I'd break down and cry if I wasn't given chaa 5 times. Don't even get me started on what would happen if there was too little sugar in it. I was even banned from being given chaa at all local Gurdwaray. With Kirpa, I'm now 4 months chaa free.

lol not sure if being serious but I have seen stuff like this before lol
