Did you watch that recent TV documentary in which Victoria Wood looked at the good old cup of tea?
I thought it would be dull as ditchwater, but I found it fascinating. I’m a coffee lover, but I’ll never give up my cup of tea.
I love the tradition, the ritual of making it and the etiquette of enjoying it.
When we go on cruises, P&O still puts on afternoon tea at 4pm, something it has done for 175 years.
Sadly, tea will never be as cool as coffee.
Tea shops won’t compete with coffee shops. Tea just isn’t as versatile.
But at least it’s easier to make and you don’t get moaned at for leaving granules all over the sink!
