The joy of tea

Don’t you just love a good cup of tea before bed time? Or at any time for that matter.

I love tea. I think I drink on average about 6 cups a day. I have a shelf devoted entirely to tea. I have so many; they just wouldn’t fit on the counter top. At the minute I have approximately 20 different flavours; green teas, fruit teas, herbal teas, teas that make you lose weight, teas that make you sleep, teas that make you happy… You name it I’ve got it.

My favourite cup of tea is the first one in the morning, which always has to be a standard English Breakfast tea. Probably PG Tips, with a dash of milk and a spoon of sugar. And a biscuit. Or six. I would challenge anyone to have a cup of tea, and only one biscuit. It’s actually impossible. Once you’ve had that first one, there is no going back. I have been known to eat an entire pack of party rings in one sitting. I’m not ashamed, we’ve all done it.

There are very few situations that can’t be improved with a cup of tea. Your friend has just been dumped, make a cup of tea. You’re tired, make a cup of tea. You’ve been fired, make a cup of tea. I seriously think it could be the answer to making world peace. Just get all the world leaders in a room together and give them a nice milky brew, with a spoonful of sugar, and I’m certain they would sort out all their problems. Maybe I’ll put the idea forward in my next meeting with Mrs May…

  1. When I was in Great Yarmouth with work earlier this year I remember being told by a local how he could tell what kind of person I was depending on how much milk I would pour in my tea – I remember dying of laughter .. you guys are something else 😀


  2. If you ever come down this way, there’s a tea shop with hundreds of flavours in jars and tins, kind of reminds me of the wand shop in Harry Potter. I wouldn’t be able to get you out of there 🙂
