Thread Name: BS: Tea Question
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Question
Its a shame you weren't around when Bill Sables made one of his trips here from Yorkshire. A long story about Bill and his various trips to the USA but he always carried his own tea and paraphernalia so he could always have a "proper cup" of tea. When he, along with young Sam Pirt and Ian, stopped at our place in 2001, Ian took my wife Karen and sister Connie into the kitchen for hands-on instruction.

Karen, Wayne(Connie's better half), and I, are all inveterate coffee drinkers but within a week, Connie had ordered ALL the proper tea and equipment over the net from England and went about driving us all nuts with the damn tea............oy...............

Finally it went the way of her other interests as we knew it would.   But.......Like all the rest, every once in awhile it resurfaces and we're all up to our assholes in tea.
