I was just referred to this site - what a find!
I have a story that is more about a tea SPOON, than a tea mug. I worked in an office that was sited next to the office workers' kitchen. You had to walk through the kitchen to visit the toilet! (The least said about that, the better!) Anyway, I was very particular about my mug and enamel handled spoon, and was most disconcerted when the latter went astray. It was gone for a few days (I mourned) and then turned up down the bog! Well, I wasn't going to remove it, so just did my business as usual (in the bog). There the spoon remained for two days. On day three, I entered the kitchen to find a colleague emerging from the toilet with right arm soaked to the elbow, enamel handled spoon in hand, commenting about wasted resources. She simply rinsed the
offending article under the cold tap then proceeded to make her tea with it!
Needless to say I never accepted a hot drink from her again!

McVitie's Lyles Creams Review
|"We love the barking mad Lyle's syrup logo, of a dead lion with bees all round it, which the packs have emblasezend upon them. If only all product logos were this odd."|
The logo is, of course, emblazoned for a reason:
And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion.
hence "Out of the strong came forth sweetness", which I've always viewed as an indication that the sweetness of strong tea does not need added sugar.
I suspect that your site is entirely secular, and lacks a spiritual element.
Praise the Lord that I don't have a television and haven't seen you on it.
|Nicey replies: Well actually if you had actually followed the link to the review you would have read that we were of course aware of the Biblical reference, and mention this. We are also aware of Mr Lyle's religious convictions which led him to choose this logo for his company.
Also you'd best not listen to the radio or read the papers because I appear in those too at the moment.

||My Nan still talks about the tea money - apparently it is vital to keep the bubbles central as long as possible!|
She also does the up and down pouring mentioned by B North.
||I can confirm that the association between bubbles in tea and money is also alive and well in those born and raised in York.|
NB Could it be that the bubbles/affluence issue is why cappucinos are so expensive? I realise that this is straying away from tea territory, but it might be educational to consider it.
||Dwi'n cytuno gyda Mr Ifans, mae eich wefan yn bendigedig!|
(I agree with Mr Ifans, your website is fantastic!)
|Nicey replies: Alright the Welsh stop trying to flatter me so I'll post up bits of Welsh. You know its only you lot and 6 people in Patagonia who know what you're on about.|
