Nicey replies: Fiona,

Fiona, Fiona, much confidence have you in your own tea, yet remain closed your eyes do to tea in general (yes that was in a Yoda voice). As we always say when we get an email such as yours that implores us to make tea just like you have it, "Everybody likes tea the way they like it". You will have read those words but not taken on board their meaning. We respect your opinion on tea but its no more correct or valid than anybody else's, except for the people who put the milk in with the tea bag before adding the water.

The picture of the cup of tea on the train, is a picture of a real cup of tea as drunk by thousands of people every day. Its there to challenge peoples perceptions of tea, most of which are over sentimental. Its not some stereotypical image from a bygone age, but it was a useful cup of tea and I think I washed it down with a triple pack of Jaffa Cakes. If you are shocked by the reality of tea in the 21st Century then perhaps you should stay indoors.

Nicey replies: Yes I remember mailing Brian about that.

I was only basing my observations on the fact that I grew up in Wales and nobody I have ever met in Wales drinks Welsh breakfast tea, or indeed has heard of it. There is a tea called Glengetty which is a Welsh brand of tea, but its not widely drunk either. From what I remember of it smooth is not a word I would apply to it, astringent perhaps. I don't doubt that some other companies copy this blend style, or not, and call it Welsh Breakfast but it's all a bit contrived I think. Similarly in England where I have spent most of my adult life very few people indeed drink English Breakfast tea at breakfast time unless of course they are forced to through finding themselves in a hotel or something that insists on keeping up the charade by having Twinings English Breakfast tea. Mostly they are after a nice cup of PG, Tetley, Typhoo etc In my limited exposure to Irish Breakfasts you mostly never get Irish Breakfast tea, but something sensible like Barry's, Nambarrie or Bewleys. Do see where I'm going with this? I don't want to sound stroppy (my Mac is telling me that's not a word, so you may not know what I mean), it's just I suspect these things are abstractions which elude to the popular styles of tea blended over a century ago and subsequently replaced by branded tea.

I'm sure you would be equally nonplussed at things that pass over here as 'New York Bagels' or 'American Cheesecake'.

Garibaldi Review
Nicey replies: That's not right at all. You need to have words with the store, most will get in what they think sells in their locale. Once something goes its unlikely to get reinstated by pure chance. Tell them what you think of their muffins and doughnuts, and that you want proper biscuits. Try turning up in an angry mob, possibly carrying pointy sticks with muffins impaled upon them.

Nicey replies: Jim,

Yes I was tipped off about this a week or two ago but I dismissed it out of hand, as its plainly wrong. When will they ever learn? As you say who wants to drink cold tea? I think the laws of physics and the forces of chaos would in fact soon ensure that you had luke warm tea despite their claims.
