These photographs document one of Professor Lipscomb’s favorite
activities - making a cup of tea. These photographs were originally
shown, in the form of a projected slide show, as part of the 1999 lg
Nobel Prize Ceremony [see AIR 6:1].
William Lipscomb is a professor emeritus at Harvard University and a
Nobel Laureate (1976) in Chemistry. Here, accompanied by Professor
Lipscomb’s description, is his secret recipe for making a cup of
home—brew tea. I love a cup of refreshing home-brew tea. It’s not
difficult to prepare.
Here’s how I do it.
First, put some tea into the teapot.
Then, get some water.
After heating the water (make sure you get it good and hot!), pour it into the teapot.
Then get just the right amount of milk, and pour it into the teapot.
Now your tea is ready.
Pour some into a teacup, and take a good, hearty sip.
You might need to let It cool to the proper temperature.
Now, you’re all set.
Relax, and enjoy your tea
