To me, tea is a very refined drink. "Stop in for a cup of tea?" somehow sounds classier than "Have coffee with me?"
Mr. Brown: "Milk in your tea, Aunt Adelaide?"Aunt Adelaide, looking shocked: "No, certainly not! Most unhealthy stuff."Mr. Brown: "Sugar?"Aunt Adelaide, looking very dignified: "Yes, six please."~From Nanny McPhee, the movie
I had a cup of tea this evening. I deliberated for a very long time about which flavor I wanted. I couldn't decide between Perfect Peach or French Vanilla. It was a terribly hard decision.
As you can see from the pictures, I didn't have either of them. I noticed that the box of Perfect Peach contained a BONUS tea bag- Wild Blueberry with Acai. I thought it sounded rather exotic and exciting, so I picked that one.
It came out a rather lovely color. It doesn't exactly look like blueberries though.
I think it's funny that the tea packets direct the consumer to PLEASE TEAR HERE. What would happen if I tore it down the side? Across the bottom? I'll have to try it sometime. It could be one of my bucket list items. I could entitle it, Open a tea packet the wrong way and still live happily ever after.
By the way, a cup of tea is extra enjoyable when you are watching a Jane Austen film. Sense and Sensibility is on right now. I suppose I should have spelled flavor "flavour" and color "colour".
Why do British spellings look so much better than American ones?
