Could be an acquired taste :wink: . But I can see myself taking a swig of earl grey tea, dipping my pen in earl grey ink and inscribing Christmas cards with remarkable manual dexterity... For a wonderful stationery collection for the written rather than the tapped word http://www.TheWritingDesk.co.uk is hard to beat

Something like that Daisy, but the words I was taught were a little bit different.

Probably one of those folk songs that has many different variants.

I remembered it as

and all the sea was ink,
If all the earth was bread and cheese,
What would we have to drinK?

But googling it I found this:

I do like a nice cup of tea. I think the water used to make the tea is important too.

When we make a cup of tea using tea bags from home in the holiday cottage we stay at in LLangeitho it tastes so much nicer than our normal brew.

Oooh, sounds lovely. :D I'm just having a cup of Lady Grey right now myself (to wash down some delicious homemade Norfolk apple cake (made by a generous friend who has lots of apple trees).

I'm hoping to have a holiday in Wales some time, possibly next year, so will have to see if I notice any difference in the flavour when making tea! :wink:

It was a nuisance. An adventure was one thing - but an adventure without anything to eat was quite another thing. That wouldn't do at all. (The Valley of Adventure)

I'm currently sipping an American Chocolate Brownie coffee, which is absolutely delicious and just what I need to see me through my evening of homework!

Songs about tea... how about Binnie Hale - 'I like a nice cup of tea in the morning'?

An Irish friend of mine once told me he would like it to be played at his funeral, erm.. well. I wish that day is a long time in the future, but I do see his point.
So hell is a place where there is no tea, and if you really want to scare me... no Barry's.
