What’s your cup of tea?
For me it has to be Twinings English Breakfast tea. Milk and two sugars thanks! I’d have to see your teaspoons to confirm the sugar amount officially though. There are some rogue-sized spoons, either too big or too small, on the streets today. *said Goldilocks! 🙂
It’s one of the little pleasures in life. Tea is my favourite drink. I’ve drunk it for as long as I can remember. I grew up on loose leaf tea, but find tea bags so much more convenient. I still have fond memories of teapots though; particularly my Grandma’s. She always had a self-knitted tea cosy on hers. The wool was lovely and warm to the touch and kept the pot active for long enough for us all to have a brew or two.
I’ve gone through all manner of tea bags to find my one true match, and Twinings English Breakfast has my heart. I don’t think I’ve drunk another brand in the last seven years at least. I am so particular about it, that I carry some in my handbag…. just in case an impromptu brew opportunity should arise!
So, dedicated to my favourite tea brand and to the nation’s favourite drink as a whole, here’s a little poem about tea.
Ode To Twinings English Breakfast Tea
No greater pleasure can there be
Than a cup of English Breakfast tea.
Boil the kettle, get your cup
Add the bag and fill her up.
Let it steep; infuse to taste.
Take your time, no need for haste.
Do you take sugar?
One lump or two?
Lots of milk?
Or will just a splash do?
Then find a place
(Your favourite spot)
Sit back, relax
And drink the lot.
A note of caution,
And only one,
Be sure to drink it
Before the heat has gone.
It’s a rite of passage
That we all go through;
The mistaken gulp
Of an ice cold brew.
So, those slurps excluded,
No matter what time of day
A nice cup of tea
Blows the cobwebs away.
Whatever the weather
The sun instantly starts shining
From the contents of the cup
When you experience the joy of Twinings.
