||Well having been forced kicking n screaming to view this web site, (being a coffee drinker its a little intimidating mixing with all you tea drinkers) I couldn't help notice the news article in April concerning those new breed of bourbon sighted in certain civil service offices.|
Well can you imagine my delight in having finally having found a breeding pair of this new species having reached the wilds of west Wales.
I have been looking in several offices recently, (can I say they have some very nice home baked tasting biscuits in the Treasury) when this morning I noticed a pair of these rare animals sitting all alone on a plate having been left by the attendees of a meeting held in my office. The cream is a little gritty and ins not quite as crisp as the genuine item, but is passable.
Further investigation revealed that the main catering firm is responsible for the supply of these items. As a major company it might explain their appearance all over the UK.
Well all I can say is I'm proud to belong to a cutting edge body ( a clue to my employers is that I can't remove any speeding points!) that provides its staff with the latest culinary delights.
Cheers and pass the Java!
Rich Tea Review
I was delighted to find your website following yesterday's review in the Times and have read with much interest the varying views on the Rich Tea.
I will not comment on the taste of the Rich Tea as I know that this is a matter of personal preference. However, I would like to point out that the best way to enjoy Rich Tea is not to eat them but to feed them (whole) to ducks.
I've just discovered this website and would like to put in a plea for some plain chocolate biscuis. Penguins, Kit - Kats etc are all milk chocolate. What about us plain chocolate lovers? Doesn't anyone think of us?
As for making sure my mug isn't used by anyone else - I've got one with nifty 50 on. As no - one here would admit to being that age it's never used by others.
Tunnocks Tea Cake Review
|I was pleased to read your excellent reviews of the tunnocks teacake and caramel wafer. However, I wonder if you are aware of their latest offering, with teasingly limited availablility, dark chocolate versions of teacakes and caramel wafers. For fans of tunnocks who prefer their chocolate on the darker side, these really are a must-have biscuit to be sought out and snapped up. |
I grew up in Hamilton, not far from Uddingston where the fabled teacake factory resides. I well remember the annual concert given to the Tunnocks staff by Earnock High School band on Uddingston town green. Oh, I've come over all reminicent now. THe same band used to play for the Phillips lightbulb factory in Hamilton, and I hope they still do.
I use two tactics to ensure that nobody would use either of my two mugs, which lived permanently on my desk.
First, I choose mugs emblazoned with stuff that meant they could only be mine:
1) An Ipswich Town FC mug - I was definitely the only ITFC supporter in the office
2) A Linux Home Page Mug - bit of a teccy mug featuring a penguin but immediately identifiable as mine being the only Linux enthusiast in an office full of Solaris / Windows freaks.
My second tactic is that I use them several times every day but perhaps actually only wash them once a fortnight, resulting in a brown staining inside the mug. This means that if anyone was tempted to use my beautifully decorated mugs, they would have to wash them first.
I think we all know that mug thieves are by definition, lazy in nature and will pass over a dirty mug which they will have to wash for the nice clean one sitting on someone else's desk.
Great site, by the way. Iced Gems.... miniature biscuits or sweets?
