She looks like if Theresa May was teabagged by Boris Johnson.

I dated a woman, in the US, who was born in England and lived there until age 12 or so.  She still had the full blown accent like a WWII film.  She always asked for English Breakfast Tea when we were out.  I was curious exactly what kind of amazing specialness this English Breakfast Tea was, thinking it must be some kind of fancy blend, picked by virgins and favored by sea captains and world travelers ... nope.  It's just black tea.  That's it.

I thought she might be faking the accent, but she talked the same in front of her grown children, who I assume would have squinted at her funny, if she were faking the accent.

/I got nothing.

Well, they colonized India, donchaknow.  Then right ho, one thing leads to another, and Bob's your uncle.

Something to do with conquering the savages and stealing their land, instituting plantations, slave labor and marketing tea-time as a sophisticated and genteel activity.

That wasn't an article, it was an ad.  Oh, excuse me - an adVERTisment.

On a tea-related note, I recently got some Chamomile tea to see if it would help me sleep.  It does.  It relaxes me more than I thought possible for a cup of tea.

Yorkshire Tea is pretty good, but for god's sake, don't bother with teabags.

Also, Betty's Tearoom Blend is good, though damn expensive. Betty's Breakfast tea is lighter (weak), because that's what breakfast is, apparently.

Bagged tea? That's the instant coffee of the tea world.
