Nicey replies: That story seems to be laying the blame with the 20-30 year olds for not drinking enough tea, but in these circumstances I blame the parents too. My niece who will soon be 18 up till now hasn't drunk tea, coffee or anything much really (water and squash I suppose). She realised that to make her way in this world she has to drink tea. Therefore she has taught herself how to do this in the last six months. Naturally we are all very pleased and somewhat relieved. Especially my sister who feels she is somewhat off the hook now, re raising a non-tea drinking daughter.

We can all do our bit to help by making sure that everybody who should be drinking tea does so. Gentle persuasion such denial of access to biscuits unless drinking tea can help. Personally I think it's morally just to insist tea drinking is mandatory in all new employees, unless they can produce some medical reason why not. It should be on CVs in the beverages section, just above qualifications. Coffee drinking can just about be tolerated as most coffee drinkers are tea drinkers in waiting. People who just drink fizzy pop should be strongly encouraged to tea, or emigrate to some country where this is acceptable.

People who just drink herbal tea need to sort it out and start drinking proper tea (again medical exceptions will be grudgingly accepted as long as they accompanied by a 'I'd rather drink proper tea if I could').

There that's not too unreasonable is it?

Churns cow, cow gate and cow cow. Hope that clears it up for you.

McVitie's Milk Chocolate and Orange Digestive Review
Nicey replies: Hello Rachael,

Yes I mentioned them at the end of the last newsletter, they were announced back in April but have only just hit the shops. Something about the Mint ones makes them seem much more fully realised to me than the Orange ones. They have that certain indefinable air of maturity which I felt was lacking from the Orange digestives, which seemed experimental by comparison. The Mint ones seem to have a much more substantial texture to their digestive and as you say the mint flavour is excellently executed. I must check back with the Orange ones again to see if their digestive has changed from the very early versions I tried.

The good news is that Mint Chocolate Digestives look to be a permanent addition to the range.

Nicey replies: Indeed, a liberal coating of butter and jam is going to perk most things up, including a cardboard box. I thought that her diet may we'll preclude spreading butter and jam all over anything a bit unappetising she may be required to eat.

Mind you maybe there is indeed a new wonder diet lurking in there. The 'Butter and Jam' diet where you can eat only unpleasant and nasty stuff but you are allowed to smoother it in butter and jam.

Nicey replies: I don't know so why not try Matzo crackers. Somebody once recommended them to us so we tried some a few weeks back. They are shaped like as enormous squares, and made from rapidly baked simple flour and water dough. Even so I was surprised by how grim they were. You should have no trouble at all not eating too many of those, you may even be tempted by the box they come in as a tasty and low carb alternative.
